Butter Mind

Butter Mind will test the hypothesis that butter improves math performance/reaction times. This study will mimic Seth Roberts' experience eating butter daily and testing himself using a simple 32-problem quiz. This study will look at two additional groups: coconut oil eaters and a control group. All groups will perform the math quiz ("Daily Math").

Reducing Jet Lag (and Other Health Effects) with Earthing Mats

First, to discover whether Earthing mats can reduce the negative effects of jet lag, namely: fatigue, insomnia, and other symptoms associated with daily routine disruption. Second, to track other health effects, positive and negative, from using Earthing mats. Some claimed benefits include: decreased recovery time from injury/strenuous exercise, decrease pain and swelling (inflammation), normalization of hormonal cycles (cortisol), decreased abdominal fat, improved sleep, quality, and increased ability to deal with stress.
