The Placebo Button

Did you know the Placebo Effect can occur even when you know it's a placebo? It's true1. And it happens in about one in three people2.

That means, if I give you a placebo, and tell you it's a placebo, there's a 1 in 3 chance it will help alleviate symptoms of whatever I say it's for.

Enter the Placebo Button. Simply type in what you want your button to cure, and click it. It might help to come back and do it often; your button should still be here if you return tomorrow.

It's crazy. It's science. It just might work.

So, what do you want your button to do?

So. Got any questions, or crazy success stories?
