BBC Documentary “Pain, Pus, and Poison”

 

This was an interesting day spent in the field.  We interviewed and recorded a professor of chemotherapy at Yale University.  He spoke about how mustard gas was used as a chemical warfare  agent during World War I and was discovered to be a potent suppressor of blood production. A similar family of compounds known as nitrogen mustards were studied further during World War II at Yale University.
