Chapter 384 Laboratory Subjects
lt;pgt;At that question, Travis was a bit taken aback.
lt;pgt;“How do you know about this?”
lt;pgt;At that moment, Georgia’s heart sank completely.
lt;pgt;Seemed like the lab was an actual thing that Jayson had invested in.
lt;pgt;“Ignore why I’m asking you about it for now, Travis. Please tell me everything you know about this
laboratory. It’s important to me.”
lt;pgt;Travis was currently speaking to Sarah and Brenton inside the hotel presidential suite they’d rented.
lt;pgt;Hearing Georgia’s heavy tone, he smiled apologetically to the two, then went outside to take the call.
lt;pgt;“I’ve told you about the grudge between Jayson and me, Georgia. That’s why, over this past year,
Sarah and I have been chasing after his trail all along. Coincidentally, Brenton woke up and I told him
about Jayson killing his son, so we started cooperating. Jayson still didn’t know the truth back then, and
we investigated his power and wealth, as well as his connections, behind the scenes. Step by step, we
almost completely dismantled his forces before he could react.
lt;pgt;“During that process, we found he’d invested dozens of billions to build a lab that conducted human
experiments on live humans underground. You couldn’t imagine how dark it was. Because of that, his
connections extended towards the underworld, which was why we couldn’t finish him off. Someone
kept on keeping him alive with the results from the lab. Finally, Sarah and I, along with Brenton – we
three made a decision to destroy the lab.
lt;pgt;“Since the lab was illegal to begin with and the sick bastards had grabbed a lot of live humans for their
experiments, I found some NGOs and got international police involved to collect the evidence, finally
destroying the lab and directly cutting off Jayson’s retreat. The lab went and exploded and a lot of datalt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;was lost. I’m not sure if they made any copies. At least Jayson didn’t. He was just an outsider who
invested a lot of capital and hired people with high qualifications to conduct experiments in the lab. So
he didn’t know if they succeeded or not.
lt;pgt;“After that, Jayson went into hiding, and the people who’d once supported him couldn’t do so anymore.
He’s lost his value.”
lt;pgt;Georgia barely understood how the lab had come about and been destroyed.
lt;pgt;But she didn’t care the most about that. She wanted to know what this shadowy laboratory had been
researching. Georgia couldn’t even grip her own phone. Her hand trembled and the sob in her voice
almost came out.
lt;pgt;“Do you still have any information on the lab, Travis? Can you send it to me? I want to know what they
were experimenting on people for. And whatever you know, whether it’s true or not, even if it’s just
rumors, could you please tell me?”
lt;pgt;Travis was a sensitive person and had known Georgia for years. Naturally, he could hear her tearing
up, and grew concerned.
lt;pgt;“What’s happened, Georgia? I feel like you’re terrified right now. Is Jayson threatening you with
something? He got away lost time, and someone as resentful as him definitely wouldn’t rest easy like
that. Tell me, and I can resolve it for you! I’ve been tangling with Jayson for a year now, and know him
well. Don’t be afraid of him. He’s just trying to intimidate you.”
lt;pgt;Travis thought that Georgia was asking about the lab because it had become connected to some of her
own research, and Jayson was threatening her with some other angle.
lt;pgt;While he was worrying over Georgia stumbling into Jayson’s trap, Georgia couldn’t hide her sobs
lt;pgt;“Please don’t ask me about it, Travis, at least not now. I just want to know what research that lab had
conducted, and how much you know.”
lt;pgt;With no alternative, Travis could only tell her what he knew.
lt;pgt;“You do research yourself. You understand. This sort of underground lab does radical experiments,
testing scientists’ hypotheses right on live humans to see if they succeed. As for a lab with this much
capital, naturally, they serve rich people. If the experiments don’t succeed, they couldn’t possibly use it
on the wealthy. That’s why they have another method to make money – investigating poisons and
spreading them on the market, profiting from it all. I don’t need to explain any further. I’m sure you get
lt;pgt;“The lab Jayson invested in had focused research. First, on neurological recovery and regeneration
medication. With the current state of technology, if a person’s nerves were damaged, under some
situations, even surgery can’t fix it, and even the peak neurological surgeons of the world can’t do
anything about that. So there’s a type of study in there that uses all sorts of radical drugs to stimulate
the human nervous system, tested on human bodies to see if nerves could be repaired and regrown.
That’s one area of research – trying to heal damaged nerves.
lt;pgt;“As for the second, it’s something the wealthy have always been interested in and willing to act on.
Slowing the body’s aging process. They grabbed a lot of elderly people and tried to do experiments on
them to regain their youth. It sounds ridiculous, I know, but those were the sorts of experiments than
went on in there. Putting an elderly body through all sorts of drug tests to see if they could get younger,
stronger, using all sorts of hormones, medical stimulation, even physical experimentation with
transplanting younger organs. You can imagine the rest.
lt;pgt;“Of course, with all the diseases that one develops with age, like lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, heart
disease, high blood pressure – they grab people sick with those diseases as well and send them to the
lab for study, seeing which drugs do best in slowing the progression of the disease. Proper labs runlt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;slower tests on lab rats first to see which drugs can eradicate cancer cells. To those rich people, that
progress is too slow, so they might check for the correct direction, then move straight to human testing
until the right concentration of drug is reached, and what formula works the best under which
lt;pgt;“That’s the major directions of what research he invested in. Maybe the person backing him is getting
on in years. It’d make sense then to invest in experiments to regain youth, repair nerve damage, and
regenerate aged neurons. Aside from that, what you hear about all the time, like organ regrowth,
cloning, and questionable research into the human soul – all that was present, but I hear not too much
progress was made. I also hear, though, that the lab made some huge leaps in neurological research,
because they had people with damaged nerves in the lab to experiment on directly, trying to see if the
damaged nerves could be fixed through stimulation…”lt;/pgt;
