Magnets Could Help Separate Oil From Water

Separating oil and water is not supposed to be a challenging task, but when it comes to getting spilled crude oil out of contaminated water, things can get a bit more complicated. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, though, hope that magnets could do the trick where filters and centrifuges have fallen short.

Soon Censored ?Korean Scientists Successfully Kill Cancer With Magnets

In South Korea, scientists used a magnetic field to get cancer cells to actually self-destruct. The body removes old, defective, and infected cells through the process of programmed cell death (PCD), or apoptosis. In apoptosis, the rejected cell responds to certain signals sent by the body by fragmenting. Immune cells then consume these fragments. The magnets help trigger apoptosis. When apoptosis fails, however, rejected cells divide uncontrollably, developing tumors.

Static Magnets Reduce Myofascial Trigger Point Pain

June 30, 2004

OAKLAND PARK, Fla., - BIOflex Medical Magnetics, Inc. (BMMI) announced the results of a double-blind clinical study on its new, patent-pending, composite BIOflex® Concentric Circle Magnets (CCM). The study, "Static Magnets Reduce Myofascial Trigger Point Pain," conducted at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Georgia, was presented at the 26th Annual Meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) in Washington, DC, June 21, 2004.


Magnetic therapy may help people with spinal cord injuries

Doctors at Imperial College London administered magnetic stimulation to the brains of people with partial damage to their spinal cord.

The therapy led to improved muscle and limb movement, and increased ability to feel sensations.

Details of the technique - known as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) - are published in the journal Spinal Cord.

It works by using an electromagnet placed on the scalp to generate brief magnetic pulses, about the strength of an MRI scan.

These pulses stimulate the


Magnet therapy: how it works


September 7, 2001

Magnet therapy is a system based on the idea that our bodies form an electro-magnetic field that respond to the healing power of magnets.

This is because iron makes up about four per cent of our blood content and every ion - or atom - contained in our cells produces an electrical impulse. These three elements make up our bodies own electrical magnetic field.


How magnets can ward off disease and keep ageing at bay

Most people associate magnets with school physics lessons, but magnet therapy could soon be the biggest craze to hit alternative circles since acupuncture.

It's already taken America by storm where over five million Americans use the technique for common complaints ranging from asthma to insomnia. Devotees include actress Shirley MacLaine, Bill Clinton and Sir Anthony Hopkins.


Magnetic Therapy Helps Alleviate Stress Disorder

Fri Apr 16, 2004

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - New research suggests that repeat stimulation of certain brain regions with magnets can help alleviate the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a debilitating psychiatric condition that can occur after exposure to life-threatening events, such as military combat or violent personal assault.


Making sense of magnets


Staff Writer
People routinely use magnets to ease pain and heal injuries, even though scientific evidence about their therapeutic value is considered weak by many medical practitioners.

Indeed, rather than receiving a warm embrace from mainstream doctors, magnets, like nutritional supplements, may have to settle for a cool handshake.
