Subject: [inbox] Re: erase with magnet

X-Rays (a form of radiation) have been proved harmful in humans and other
life.  Magnetism has never shown any side effects on living organisms.

  When was the last time that you heard of Magnetism sickness, now how about
radiation sickness?

 I'll be more than happy to have an MRI every day for a month, no worries
here.  Now, having an x-ray every day for a month, I'd object to.  I did not
mean that just because it happens everyday it's harmless.  I was trying to
show that an MRI machine is basically a huge magnet.
