Better yet, how about some numbers, like "the drop in the
heart rate for humans whose faces were immersed in cold water
as x percent"... etc etc.

I assume it's cold water, and not warm water, so we'd really
need to know the temperature of the water. Furthermore
we don't know if this is in response to the cold, so we'd need
to know the ambient temperature. Furthermore we'd need to know
if similar responses occur for dunking feet or arms in cold water.

How about the effect of putting an icebag on the belly. It's
only in the relative effects of these for various animals some
of which are furry and some hairless and some aquatic that do
numbers of this type make sense, and so far nobody has
provided the numbers. After the numbers are in one can then
run a correlation-regression program to see if there's some
kind of a fit to something reasonable.
