Question about magnetism and humanbody

Postby hurly » Tue Jun 14, 2005 12:23 pm

Didn't know where to put this, but my question is about magnetism and how it affects the humanbody. If you are exposed for powerful magnetism forces, what consequenses does it have on our body? I'm mainly talking about blood which contain Mg2+. Does it improve the blood streaming? What about other bodyparts that contain other metallic ions?

Also, have you guys seen people selling those magnetic armlets and necklaces? Are those just fake or do they really work?

Interesting question.
Wikipedia has good info on Magnet Therapy (Those magnetic bracelets etc).

Dont know what would happen if you were exposed to a powerful magnetic field tho.
Would that be like an EM pulse? That destroys computers and other items containing electronics. They are awesome. Isn't it a form of radiation so it would cause cancer :?

You can buy one and test it out http://www.johnsonsmith.com/website/sto ... _page_no=1

There's been an invention that supposedly uses a magnetic field to vibrate our hemoglobin molecules to defeat malaria. According to some, there's not enough iron to do so.
