    [​IMG]Our long national dilemma is finally over: A researcher, who was a guest recently on NPR, has proven finally, once and for all, that Digital I-Dosers don't make kids high. Granted, anyone with a quarter of a brain could have told you that, but here's what she said:

    NORRIS: Now, based on your research, is it possible that listening to these tracks might lead someone to experience something tantamount to the effects of taking cocaine or ecstasy or even Viagra? Dr. WAHBEH: We did a small controlled study with four people, and we did not see any brain wave activity shifting to match the binaural beat that people were listening to.

    NORRIS: So if we decided to play some of these binaural beats right now, other than freaking out our listeners who turn to us for news and information and perhaps a little bit of enlightenment, would we cause people to drive off the road or enter into some other kind of spooky altered state?

    Dr. WAHBEH: Not at all. I mean, first of all, you have to listen to it with stereo headphones; and second, I just don't think that there is enough evidence showing that it really does create those altered states.

    NORRIS: So for parents who have lots to worry about when it comes to raising teenagers, I guess we might be able to take this one off the list?

    Dr. WAHBEH: I would think so

    It's a tragedy, guys. What are we going to trick teenagers into buying next? [NPR]
