  •  I read this very interesting article.... (10+ / 0-)

    ...the other day in the New England Journal of Medicine about how Arizona State University paid 41 members of the Havasupai tribe $700K to settle a lawsuit, because of the unethical use of donated blood samples that the tribesmembers gave to the researchers to use for a diabetes study.  The researchers used it for that purpose, but they also shared the blood with other investigators for use in studies that the blood donors found offensive and/or stigmatizing.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I could use a lot more education about how Native Americans have been treated by the medical establishments in the United States, including how natives have been used/treated in scienfitic studies.
