    It is hard to help when your enquiry is so broad....

    Do you need to understand the effect on the body, or the basics of electricity? Have you searched Google?

    For a start, the human body has a high resistance....... Get googling!

    I actually need to find out the effects on the body, i've got the basics and trust me, i've tried looking on google, but there are so many sites and hardly any have what i'm looking for. if you could help it would be fantastic, thanks

    Probably not really what you`re looking for, but may be of interest....

    If not, then maybe you could try doing it on yourself and come up with an idea that way!!!! :-)
