disappointed about study

User Profile
for a while now i have been waiting to take part in a medical research study, testing out new treatments. I thought it would be a good way to make some easy money so i can go traveling. i'm registered with the organisation but when i rang up to volunteer for the current study i was told i could not participate because i am vegetarian and everyone who stays in the centre has to eat the same thing, which will include meat. i am gutted! i thought everywhere catered for veggies these days but i was wrong!

Fiona, don't compromise your eating habits for a study. From what I've read about studies, those are the things to avoid like the plague.
I am also a vegetarian and I won't change that for anybody or anything.

I too have heard that these studies are torturous-- which is why they pay so well and why you get the majority of the money only upon completion of the study. A huge number of people drop out before the end. In some sleep studies, for instance, you have to use a bed pan, stay in complete darkness for days at a time, stand staring at a wall for 12 hours, and other similarly unpleasant activities. Believe me, you will earn every penny of that "easy money".
