Research Subjects Wanted

Those in the business of selling their bodies to science may want to think twice about any calls they get from UW professor John Webster.

This is from an article in the Duluth News Tribune:

-----------------

It is possible that Tasers can cause a heart condition in pigs that will lead to their deaths if they are not treated with electric defibrillation, a University of Wisconsin professor says.

John Webster, a professor of biomedical engineering, said the results of his study illustrate the possibility that a Taser could kill a person given the proper conditions.

The next step of his research is to focus on how likely it is for a Taser to kill a human.

-----------------

You might want to steer clear of that study.
