As a young girl, G. C. Rossi must contend with a mother prone to violent outbursts. Even so, she's able to enjoy life with the help of a loving father and a great imagination.But everything changes when her father dies. At just ten years old, she becomes a ward of the state; when she contracts hepatitis, she is hospitalized and sinks into depression. Her condition becomes so serious that she is transferred to the Allan Memorial Institute.One of the institute's doctors, Ewan Cameron, is working with the Central Intelligence Agency to conduct mind control experiments on patients. He has a number of foot soldiers working on his behalf; as a result, for the next three and a half years, G. C. is pumped full of drugs.This account reveals serious flaws in the medical and psychiatric systems. While the world may have thought that experimenting on people ended with the Nazis, the story told in "Exploitable Minds, Expendable People" shows that the past may continue to haunt unsuspecting, innocent victims.
