    There have been several studies claiming that the Atomic Energy Commision did indeed conduct human expiriments with radioactive iodine in the early 1950s, before the dangers of radiation poisoning were fully known.  Dani Veracity, in “Human medical experimentation in the United States: The shocking true history of modern medicine and psychiatry” for example claims that the AEC gave vitamin cocktails with radioactive iodine to 859 pregnant women. Eileen Welsome, in “The Plutonium Files,” makes a similar claim.
