If you don't have any pockets and need to carry small pieces of metal or if you're Tony Stark, they work.

What do you mean by "work?" Are you asking if they have some kind of medical benefit? If so, the answer is absolutely not. If you want to stick something to a ferrous surface, this is your product.

HTH ;-D

Whether it's a placebo affect or not, there's way too many people I've come across claiming these actually work for me to totally dismiss it. Even if it's the power of the mind, whatever works, right? That said, I don't have any myself, but if the price wasn't crazy (I have no idea what these things cost?) I'd give it a go, why the heck not. I've wasted money a lot less responsibly.

But if they work, regardless if its scientific or psychosomatic, that doesn't stop them from 'working'. If somebody feels relief in their arthritis, improved balance, or whatever else these claim to do, after putting one on, then it works, regardless of what the ultimate cause is.

If they worked,all anyone would need to do would be to strap any old magnet on their body. They wouldn't have to pay $19.95 for this thing.

I believe in the power of the mind to influence people's bodily functions (psychosomatic affects) but if it's that easy I need to get into this business.

Dude on my softball team swears by these. I tried to sell him ocean front property in Arizona. Still working on that.

These people you know, are they the ones in the commercials? Are they that convincing?
