57 : Germanium Bracelet

 

Found this Germanium bracelet in Daiso the other day,  its supposed to improve your health and is recommended for: Discomfort in hands, shoulders or waist - stress - active sports ( golf, tennis ,,, etc). 
The concept behind germanium health bracelets is to restore a balance to the magnetic field around the individual. Purportedly, exposure to a number of devices, such as cell phones and other forms of wireless technology degrade this field. Germanium health bracelets are equipped with both a positive and negative pole that works to counteract the imbalance created by emissions from these sources, and thus reduce the harmful effects of modern living.

Personally, I believe that all beings in this universe go down to simple elements, molecules and little protons, ions and neutrons, hence the small cells that combine to make anything. And reading a little about the element Germanium it is a semi-conductive element used in making fiber optics and some of its compounds are not safe for the lungs and eyse!  I'm not sure I would trust it around my wrist :/

I realized that again, I bought something I do not want from diso :> a shop where you can find a thing for the thing that is used for the other thing, that you totally forgot what it would be :p I thought about wearing it and trying, then again this is my health! Why would I try something I do not need nor was recommended to use :]

I got a similar wrist band from Japan but it was made from a "custom" material. When they demonstrated it to me, they asked me to lift a metallic weight with my finger to get a feel of how heavy it was, and then without letting go, the lady from the store placed the band in my palm and asked me to lift again and it felt a lot lighter! She said it improves muscle recovery by increasing oxygen absorption rate of iron in the blood.

I couldn't help but buy one :] Or two :P
