Patient discussion about magnetism

Q. who much cost the resonance magnetic machine? new or used

A. here is a company that you can even get a MRI scanner in a leasing program:

Q. hey guys! has anyone ever tried a chinese magnet to help a diet?? Somwone I know who is a chinse medicine healer, gave me a special magnet you stick to the right thumb of your hand to help evoid snack attacks. Did you ever hear anything about it?? did iot help anyone??

A. i tried magnets. not to dieting but magnets to the feet. supposed to help in giving energy while walking (i hike a lot). couldn't say i felt a big difference, but i only tried it for a day- so i don't know...

The effects of magnetic impurities and the possibility of magnetic ordering in superconductors have had a rich and interesting history, and neutrons have played an essential role in determining the nature of the magnetic order since the Meissner screening of the superconducting electrons masks the magnetism from most probes.
