ARD Labs – Magnetic Therapy Research
|Update 13 September, 2003.|
It seems that the research into magnets which have one pole stronger than the other has caused this site to collapse into a black hole. You can see what it used to look like here.
I received the following email about this site.

Dear Practiioner of Cynicism,
Please update your Millenium Project URL as follows:
Please indicate which category this falls under (I presume pseudoscience) and why. If you're going to put your money where your mouth is, so to speak, please take enough time to not lump the site in with all the nonsense, non-researched sales pitches for health magnets all over the net.
PaulOn the front page of the ARD Labs site is a box which displays random testimonials. When I checked a short while ago, it said: "I have used successfully the N2 magnet and the magnetic lens glasses. I have eliminated cataracts in a large number of elderly persons. -- Dennis Tang, M.D.". Any site which carries a claim that magnets can be used to cure cataracts is certainly not a "nonsense, non-researched sales pitch". It is a "lying, deceptive and deliberately fraudulent sales pitch".
I find it amusing that someone with a web site which has the word "research" in the title is not sure which category his site is listed under here. I would have thought that anyone with a modicum of research ability would be able to look at the top of the page where something was listed and read what is written there. Perhaps, however, this confusion is merely indicative of the standard of research into magnetic therapy being carried out by the site owner. Just to make it easy for Paul, I will tell him that his site is listed under "Medical Fraud" and "Pseudoscience". And "Liars", of course. Don't forget "Liars".
