Magnetize Your Beverages?

Magnetize Your Beverages?
Dr. Stephen Barrett has posted a new QuackWatch article. "Explorations, of Broomfield, Colorado, markets a large collection of books, videotapes, devices, and other items related to self-help and spirituality. Its products include a magnetic mug, a 'Q-Ray Bracelet' alleged to 'balance the body's electromagnetic circuits,' and magnets claimed to provide pain relief in many parts of the body. The magnetic mug, which costs $45, is said to 'magnetize beverages for better hydration.'" It never stops, does it? Included is a photo of the mug and the company's description of how it is supposed to work - followed by Dr. Barrett's detailing of the numerous flaws in the claim.
