The Pentagon Is Zapping Troops With Electric Shocks To Replace Caffeine
The Pentagon has started testing the application of low level electrical currents through soldiers’ brains as a replacement for coffee and energy drinks.
Those given electrical stimulation reported feeling refreshed at the end of the testing, despite obvious sleep deprivation. Overall, volunteers hooked up to the electrodes performed twice as well as those given nothing.
With advances like this, it may not be far in the future that consumer electrical shocks become the next big thing.
