From MSN: Scientists are proposing to use your stomach as a lie detector
. Polygraphs, which are sometimes inaccurate, could be combined
with "electrogastrograms," which monitor digestive activity and proved more reliable than heart rate
at detecting lies in a small study.
So we can detect lies by looking at our gut activity, but we can't look at those same guts and figure out what's medically wrong with them?
And how does it test on people who have known stomach issues like us, people with Crohn's, UC and chronic acid reflux? Could my stomach's reaction to caffiene imply that I'm lying?
Unless the government gets any more big brother than it is already, most of us should never have to know the answer to that question.
