The Nuremberg Code (1949)

The voluntary consent of the human subject 15 absolutely essential

This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent
should be 50 situated as to be able 10 exercise free power of choice, without the
intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other
ulterior form of constraint of coercion, and should have sufficient knowledge and
comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, 2s to enable him to
make an understanding and enlightened decision This latter clement requires that,
before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject, there
should be made known to him the nature. duration, and purpose of the

expenment, the method and means by which it 15 to be conducted, all
inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected, and the effects upon his
health or person. which may possibly come from his participation in the
expenment

The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon
each individual who initiates, directs of engages in the experiment It 1s a personal
duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity

The experiment should be such as 10 yield fruitful results for the good of society.
unprocucable by other methods or means of study, and not random and
unnecessary in oature

The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal
experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease of other
problem under study, that the anticipated results will jusafy the performance of
the expenment

The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid al unnecessary physical and
mental suffening and injury

No experiment should be conducted, where there is an a priors reason to believe
that death or disabling injury will occur, except. perhaps. in those experiments
where the expenmental physicians also serve as subjects

The degree of risk 10 be taken should never exceed that determined by the
humarutanan importance of the problee to be solved by the experiment

Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilites provided 10 protect the
expenmental subject against even remote possibilities of jury, disability, or
death

The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons The
highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the
expenment of those who conduct or engage it the experiment

Dung the course of the experiment, the human subject should be at liberty 10
bring the expenment to an end, 1f he has reached the physical or mental state,
where continuation of the expenment seemed 10 him to be impossible

Imagine You Are An Aluminum Atom

Join “Mr. Aluminum,” a scientist who has made the study of aluminum his life’s work, on a journey of discovery, reflection, and the science of aluminum.

Professor Christopher Exley is a firm believer that science is only useful when it is properly communicated. Scientific papers are difficult vehicles for the wider communication of science and thus he has always endeavored to tell the story of his scientific research as widely as possible through myriad blogs, presentations, and interviews. Through a series of easy-reading entries written for non-scientists, Exley will educate readers about his lifelong scientific passion: aluminum. In scientific circles, aluminum—in relation to human health specifically—has gone the way of the dinosaurs (though, unlike dinosaurs, there has not yet been a popular revival!). Yet aluminum is also the greatest untold story of science.

But why do we all need to know a little bit more about aluminum? Do we need a self-help guide for living in what Exley has coined “The Aluminum Age”? What is it about aluminum that makes it different? What about iron, copper, or any of the so-called “heavy metals,” like mercury, cadmium, or lead? Why must we pay particular attention to aluminum? Because its bio-geochemistry, its natural history, raises two red flags immediately and simultaneously.

These two danger signals are easily missed by all of us and easily dismissed by those whose interests are conflicted by aluminum’s omnipresence in human life and consequently, are purposely blind to its danger signals. First, aluminum, in all of its myriad forms, is super abundant; it is the third most abundant element (after oxygen and silicon) of the Earth’s crust. Second, aluminum is super reactive; it is both chemically and biologically reactive. However, these two red flags identify a paradox, as the abundant and biologically reactive aluminum has no biological function either in any organism today nor in any extinct biota from the evolutionary past. This means in practical terms that when we encounter aluminum in our everyday lives, our bodies only see aluminum as an impostor, something foreign, and something for which we have not been prepared through biochemical evolution. This in turn means that all of our encounters with aluminium are adventitious, random, and chaotic. And potentially dangerous. 

Imagine You Are An Aluminum Atom: Discussions With “Mr. Aluminum” examines the science of aluminum and human health and makes them understandable to all. Within the science you will find personal recollections of events, as well as opinions and reflections upon how the politics of aluminum have influenced and interfered with doing and reporting the science. It is at once both a personal recollection of Exley’s life in aluminum research and a guide on the dangers of the constant exposure to aluminum we as humans face during this “Aluminum Age.” It will inform, it will provide the means to question the science, and it will, if the reader is prepared to participate, answer those frequently asked questions on aluminum and human health.”

10. Dunng the course of the expenment, the scientist in charge must be prepared to
terminate the expenment at any stage. if he has probable cause to believe, in the
exercise of the good faith, supenor skill and careful judgement required of him
that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or
death to the experimental subject
