LadyCare Menopause Magnets

The manufacturers of LadyCare Magnets claim that women can ease the symptoms of menopause by magnetizing their underwear.

I guess it can't hurt, but might look a bit odd if random metallic objects (forks, paperclips, etc.) are attracted to your crotch.

If they are rare earth magnets, they may be strong enough to attract men's belt buckles.

Would it be politically incorrect to say they're cow magnets? ('Cow magnets' has become sort of a generic term for the gimcracks which claim magnetism can do everything from curing cancer to giving you better gas mileage.)

It's long been known magnetic fields affect living tissue. Because there have only been a few isolated studies on various types of tissue, it's still a vast unknown, leaving the field wide open to snake oil salesmen.

Ttranscranial magnetic stimulation is, as far as I know, the first real research being done in multiple settings simultaneously. Sadly, even there, the studies are geared more towards the effects and not why a magnetic field affects the tissue. The current theory is woefully inadequate to explain all observations.

It's possible these magnets do exactly what it's claimed they'll do. (It's also possible I'll hit the lottery three weeks in a row.)

Imagine that some thing like that could allow one to use a magnetic compass to determine who's going through the change.

...I dunno, quite often one doesn't need magnets to detect that, KDP.
