Taser safety studies significantly biased from ties to manufacturer

• Rawstory

Taser safety studies may be biased due to researchers' ties to the electrical stun guns' manufacturer, Taser International Inc., according to cardiologists at the University of California, San Francisco.

The cardiologists examined the the accuracy of 50 published studies on the potential dangers of using Taser stun guns and found that the likelihood of a study concluding the devices are safe was 75 percent higher when the studies were either funded by the manufacturer or written by authors connected with the company.

The Taser is a deadly weapon - just ask the 500+ dead Americans.  If 'anyone' - regardless of who - pulls a Taser on you you must consider that he is about to kill you:  Do what you must to protect your life.
