Listen, we get angry with the wrong people. We displace our anger and pain on to the likes of magnet people, they are after all a soft and easy target, when we should be angry at the real snake-oil pervayors, the drug companies. Think they care one jot about your headache? If they hadn't seen us as ripe a marketing opportunity there would be no Imitrex for a start! How do magnets affect CH? Who knows! Who cares? How does Imitrex work on CH? Don't ask Glaxo they don't know either! Read their literature if you don't believe me. How many of us have said that if someone said elephant crap cured CH we'd eat it for breakfast lunch and supper? So what if someone wants to make a bit of cash selling magnets or elephant crap, they surely won't make but a tiny tiny fraction of the money the big drug companies are making out of each and every one of us! Tell me, how many of us would buy shares in magnets or elephant crap? How many of us have shares in Glaxo?
Oh, and you are right, this posting is also displaced anger, my appologies to you all.
