Magnetic fields reduce blood viscosity

Jun 11, 2011 | Magnetic Therapy

An area of medicine that continues to show promise is the application of therapeutic magnetic fields. Recently scientists have found that exposing blood flow to a pulsed 1.3T magnetic field can significantly reduce its viscosity which could have profound implications in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.

The overwhelming body of evidence that now demonstrates the usefulness and practical applications of therapeutic magnetic fields makes a mockery of the uninitiated sceptic who continue to vilify the therapy as having no therapeutic value. They seem to not understand or forget that the MRI is in fact a magnet. This goes right back to the history of magnetic therapy, once you understand how it evolved it’s easier to see why barriers still exist to its broader acceptance. The people who suffer in the meantime are the patients who take medications with their side effects and go through risky and expensive surgery when more non-invasive and less risky options are available.

UPDATE:
This study received an absolute roasting from the science based medicine blog and I must say I would have to agree. The comments on the post are brilliant and well worth a visit.

Why magnet design matters? Learning from Cow Magnets

Magnetic materials are attracted to field gradients and NOT to a uniform or what physicists call a homogeneous field. This is well illustrated with the cow magnet. Cow magnets are used by cattle farmers to safely collect any metal objects such as nails or barbed wire their animal might ingest. Because the cow magnet produces a field gradient along the length of its shaft, metal objects will neatly stick to its sides. This is how it works...
