Copper Bracelets, Magnetic Wrist Straps Fail to Help Rheumatoid Arthritis

I had noted a long time ago that based on the proposed mechanism, there was no basis to expect magnetic bracelets to work. No real surprise that they don’t.

The research published in PLOS ONE, show that both the standard magnetic wrist strap and the copper bracelet provided no meaningful therapeutic effects beyond those of a placebo, which was not magnetic and did not contain copper.

I like that they point this out about the placebos.

  1. Whoa! 94% of Alnico 5 magnetic field is electron spin versus 37% of Sm2Co17 magnetic field being electron orbital angular momentum. That obtains efficacious New Age drivel. Consider corn syrup into PET and vat-cultured bacterial poly(lactide-co-glycolide) for making candy wrappers.

    Science is a vile abuse of privilege devoted to malicious infliction of cruelties and losses. Ignorance is a powerful form of knowing things, as is faith: Congress, Obamacare, and 22 July 1209 (Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius).

    Redirected stupidity plus talent for presentation is intelligence. Diversity is the best thing, by unwrtten law. Try getting your STEM kid into a university based upon Honors classes, superlative grades therein, and 50 AP credits math, chemistry, biology, and German. How much has he given of himself helping the Officially Sad and LGBT grab their fill?
