I knew clinical trials existed, but I never knew about these recruitment websites that tantalize you with the incentive packages. Like this place who offer applications (under subscription) to enter Phase I clinical trials and other studies, for large amounts of cash and all expenses paid "holidays" to the laboratory. For example: So you get $6,875 for whackin it into a cup 8 times? This is something... What they don't tell you in the ad is that you'll probably be injected with a drug that has never been put into any other human before. Likely a drug that will have outcomes pertaining to your reproductive system... Becomes a question of how much do you want to be paid to play a chemical version of Russian roulette. Has anyone been tempted or submitted themselves to a clinical drug trial, and become a lab rat? Also, what are your thoughts on animal testing? Do you think it's ethical? This is something I find hard to answer, because while I appreciate some studies that come out of animal testing, I do not wholeheartedly agree that it is morally justified... It is this way because we have the power to put them in a cage for the good of our own species.
