    Alexis St. Martin and William Beaumont have one of the strangest relationships in the history of medicine -- a young French-Canadian fur trapper with a hole in his stomach from an errant shotgun blast and the American army physician who cared for him, and then made his own career by turning Alexis into a human guinea pig. They’d revolutionize our understanding of the physiology of the stomach, put American medicine on the map, and start a conversation about human experimentation that goes on to this day.
