The Naval Biological Warfare Laboratory at Oakland Supply Center and the University of California Berkeley

The Naval Biological Warfare Laboratory in Oakland run by the University of California Berkeley, conducted experiments in infectious disease, fungii, Chemical, Biological and Radiological research for the purpose of protecting Naval Personnel in combat and to develop vaccines and therapeutic methods to treat diseases. Also notice the diseases that affect livestock are an example of a biological weapon. It is this lab that lead the way to the Polio Vaccine and other major works in saving lives. The site is now being developed for real estate.

The following diseases are featured in this publication – PUBLICATIONS of the Naval Biological Laboratory, School of Public Health University of California and Naval Medical Research Unit #1 Berkeley, California 1942-1965. Notice the articles on dispersing disease over large areas.

Note many of these diseases were used in Biological warfare tests on the unsuspecting public all over the United States. See main article “245 biological experiments on US citizens in cities and bases, Navy Biological Warfare Lab in SF Bay.”
