MAGNETS for Horses And/Or People – What is the Evidence?
I have not seen ANY convincing evidence that magnets provide any benefit other than as PLACEBO. As such, if you buy them for your horse you are wasting your money as the placebo effect can only work on YOU not on YOUR HORSE.
Rather than write lots of words, I have gathered together some reliable sources of evidence that you can review and make up your own mind.
The CAP is aware that other magnetic products claim to relieve ulcers, period pain, arthritic pain, sciatica, rheumatism, migraines, restless leg syndrome and the symptoms of the Menopause and cure impotence.
NEITHER THE ASA NOR CAP HAS ACCEPTED THAT THE CLAIMED BENEFITS ARE SUPPORTED BY SATISFACTORY SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE. Although some people might believe in the powers of magnets, marketers should remember that testimonials alone do not constitute substantiation (rule 3.47 and Magnetic, 23 May 2001, in which the marketer provided genuine testimonials but did not prove the efficacy of the product).”
