Information about magnets and their use in the treatment of psoriasis.

Magnet therapy. These days, it means big money for people who sell magnets, and little else. I cannot cover this subject as well as others can, so I will cut this short with a quote from the bottom line of Dr. Stephen Barrett’s Magnet Therapy article on Quackwatch:
There is no scientific basis to conclude that small, static magnets can relieve pain or influence the course of any disease. In fact, many of today’s products produce no significant magnetic field at or beneath the skin’s surface.
A search of Medline reveals that there have been no clinical studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals which show that magnetism of any form has any effect on any form of psoriasis, much less a positive one. None. Zero. Zip. And so, the web sites listed below which make claims that it can, or even suggest that it can, don’t deserve your attention, they deserve your scorn.
