>Participants must be within a reasonable drive to ARIEM's Natick, Massachusetts, location, and be willing to go without anything but MREs, water and black coffee for three weeks — no other food or drink, including no alcohol. The study, which includes multiple blood draws and other medical scans, requires a six-week commitment.
Sounds like a welcome restful mission for some army volunteers. It doesn't even mention that they have to do rigorous bootcamp workouts or anything, just eat shit food for 3 weeks and get tested for 6 weeks. Some of those MREs aren't that bad tasting at all, but I don't know about the bacteria they are talking about in the article.
What are the chances there's a secret CIA order to add something to some of those? Be it a mild poison, harmful pathogens or medicinal viruses, whatever they want to test
I don't think so, buet wouldn't be surprised either
Why would CIA interfere with an army study when there are plenty of civilian studies where they could do the same? Considering that the goal is better national security, that would be counterproductive.
did two tours of duty in South Korea, I've already done this multiple times
POWER RANKINGS:: MRE ENTREES
Chicken Parm w/ Pasta Shells
Everything Else but..
Four Fingers of Death
Jalapeno Cheese is the SHIZNIT!!!!
that will not be a problem, each MRE is formulated to power a soldier in combat, so if anything you'll be gorgin on excess calories
DRINK WATER ALL THE TIME
These things will calk up your colon like a concrete pillar, and that feels just as unpleasant as it sounds, especially on the toilet
I mean the jalapeno cheese is ok if it isn't on the shit snack bread, but they basically means crackers are a necessity to go with it.
Otherwise I just trade that shit for some peanut butter
Fine print probably is an agreement to join the fucking military.

Ex ausfag army fag here.
4months Australian ratpacks. (ration packs, MRE for amerifags).....
After the first 3 weeks, your body adjusts and it becomes standard food. You poo black and only once every 2-3 days at most. Poo is solid and you only need 1 wipe to clean, they provide it in the pack itself.
Water consumption goes up to 12-15L per day, but this is with pack marching 40-45kg, construction (hence the pack weight), demolition work (we make our own explosives, lots of diesel stirring) and generic combat drills in 38-40 degree heat (Celsius, because ausfag).
Thank fuck I went back to school.
