Question: When you conduct experiments on yourself are there any side effects than you have experienced?

  1. Yes, but they are minor and expected.

    We take a lot of trouble to make sure we know what the side effects will be before we do something on humans. So before I do something to myself or someone else, I know what the likely side effects will be and the subject can make a decision if they still want to participate.
