History of Magnets Ban
Tiny neodymium magnet balls have a powerful magnetic force. They can pull at one another over far distances and across either side of an object.
The strength explains why they can be used as fake studs on the tongue, the nose, and the ears—their magnetism can easily pass through skin and tissues.
So when a person has two or more of these balls in their digestive tract, complications arise as they begin attracting each other.
Neodymium magnets are metals, so they cannot be digested. But they can move along the digestive tract, all the while attracting whatever metallic object their magnetism can reach, even through walls of skin and tissues.
Suppose someone has one or more pieces of magnetic balls in a loop of their intestine and another piece in a different loop. In that case, those pieces will attract each other, forcefully pulling the intestine walls together.
In some cases, they may make a hole in the bowels, but in most cases, getting them out of a person’s system requires surgery.
Small separable magnet sets were banned in several countries.
