Guinea Pig Zero, Web site review by Julie Madsen
This site manages to be simultaneously quirky and serious about the often grave subject of human scientific experimentation, and offers a take on bioethics from possibly the most firsthand account there is--the human guinea pig. Guinea Pig Zero bills itself as 'an occupational jobzine for people who are used as medical or pharmaceutical research subjects' with real-life accounts and resources that may prove helpful if you're considering becoming a subject; but the site's assortment of true stories, historical facts, news, research, evaluations of particular research facilities by volunteers, and 'reviews, poetry and fiction relating to the disposability of plebeian life' will fascinate even those who won't be serving themselves up in the name of science any time soon.
