Makers of Lipitor Also Made Chemical, Biological Weapons
September 28, 2006
Long before they began making Lipitor, Pfizer was one of many pharmaceutical and chemical companies that developed military weapons, according to a fascinating report written more than four decades ago and now available from The Memory Hole.
The report discusses the company's (then called Chas. Pfizer & Co., Inc.) research to create incapacitating agents that produced such effects as:
- Muscle fatigue
- Retrograde amnesia
Some of the substances tested by Pfizer under the program were strychnine, amphetamines, pentobarbital sodium, mescaline, carbochol, caffeine, nicotine, and LSD.
