I belong to an emf discussion group.  Someone asked if magnets would
effect nerve conduction.  I said NO,  I don't think so.  Well apparently
they do, by reducing the firing rate.  If so large magnets may
reduce firing rates for MS patients.  If so the body may try to
adjust the firing rates and INCREASE myelination, thereby slowing
the disease down.  A harmonic entrainment may do help also as
a guess.  Any support pro or con for these ideas?  Ron Blue
