Does it work in real life?
Following on this proposed experiment
, using magnets to destabilize 'hot blobs' in ocean water. Providing a prosthetic magnetosphere to substitute for our weakening field.
Got thinking. Has this already been tested? Is there an existing real-life situation where magnets could change the pattern of bacteria? How about dental implants? Some of them are held in by magnets. Do they affect plaque?
INSTANT answer from a 2005 dental research journal:
... however once again plaque accumulation has found to be increased around magnet retained overdenture abutments.
Googlebooks won't show a long passage, and I'm not sure what an overdenture abutment is, but the connection is clear. The author was familiar with the problem. "Once again."
