This 29 January 2018 German video is about German car corporations testing toxic fumes on monkeys.

It says about itself:

German carmakers expose humans and monkeys to diesel exhaust fumes

The tests in the US were funded by Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW. It’s reported that monkeys were made to inhale fumes from several cars in an airtight chamber. Similar tests were carried out on humans.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

‘Also humans as exhaust fumes guinea pigs’

In the exhaust gas scandal not only tests with monkeys were carried out, but also with people. The [German] Stuttgarter Zeitung and the Süddeutsche Zeitung report this on the basis of a report that the newspapers have received.

The report was prepared by the European Research Group for Environment and Health in the Transport Sector (EUGT), which was financed by car manufacturers Volkswagen, BMW and Daimler. According to the report, the EUGT conducted a “short-term inhalation study” into nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in healthy people.

According to the newspapers, the EUGT investigated the effects of various NO2 concentrations in 25 young healthy individuals. That is said to have happened between 2012 and 2015 at the university hospital in Aachen, just across the Dutch border at Heerlen. …

Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is one of the harmful substances in exhaust gases. Volkswagen cheated for years with test results from research on exhaust fumes from diesel cars. The NO2 values ​​were manipulated so that the cars met the legal standards for diesel cars. In practice, the standards were often exceeded. …

Last week it became known that the EUGT conducted experiments with monkeys. The animals were exposed to exhaust fumes in a confined space. That research intended to show that a modern Volkswagen diesel car from is much less polluting than older cars.
