David Nash wrote:There was a great deal of "medical research" performed by the doctors in Buchenwald and Dachau during WWII. When confronted with the results, many doctors refused to even review the findings because they felt it violated their Hippocratic oath.
They argued that by even looking at the research data they would be giving validity to the techniques used to obtain the research. Others felt that they were salvaging some good from the horror of the occupation camps.
In any event, much of the research into cancer treatments and cancer drugs actually dates to early Nazi experiments on prisoners.
So, if you were offered a drug that conferred immortality, but you knew it was based on research that involved torturing, killing, and maiming thousands - would you take it?
I don't want to be immortal. However, the same question can be valid for other medicines or drugs as you mentioned cancer drugs. I think I can think about it if the methods currently being used for its preparation do not involve any violation of human rights.

There are a lot of medical advancements and knowledge obtained throughout history through inhumane actions. There have even been conversations about not using certain medical knowledge because of how it was obtained, but almost universally it was decided it should be used.
