First Day of Gamma Bulb and Why I Created This Product

I have spent the last six months engineering a light bulb that has been specially designed to flicker at a rate of 40HZ.  

6 Months ago I heard on an episode of Radio Lab called Bringing Back Gamma  ( that MIT has been doing some really interesting research pertaining to the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease (Click on the link to listen to the full episode yourself).  Long story short - Researchers at MIT found that exposing mice to 40Hz light decreased the signs and symptoms of their Alzheimer's Disease.

I am acutely and personally aware of the horrors of Alzheimer's disease.  Anything that could potentially slow or stop the progression would be a miracle for so many people all over the world. 

I know that this therapy has not been proven to work in human's yet, but I have seen how quickly Alzheimer's Disease can move.  I created this bulb for people out there who don't have the time to wait and are looking for something they can try that may give them hope.  Also, I have seen many people out there looking for bulbs to try and have been making some really cool DIY rigs, but those can be expensive and difficult to use, so I came up with a better solution.  A simple light bulb that can screw into most existing household sockets

If in time we find that this product does not work, I will shut down the site and stop selling the bulbs, but in the meantime it's just a lightbulb, and maybe, just maybe, it will help.  In addition, a portion of each sale will be donated to Alzheimer's Research.
