See this question: Do Phiten necklaces have any beneficial properties (titanium necklaces pitchers wear). Here is a summary of Phiten technology.
Note these similar ones:
- Do those hologram bracelets do anything at all?
- Do ion bracelets work?
- Has electromagnetic therapy been proven effective?
My question is at -1, while the others sit between 3 and 14 upvotes as of 8/23/2011. Until requested, no one left any comments about the reason for downvotes. Slivvz speculated:
I think it's because the claim is so bogus that it isn't very interesting... Just a guess...
And Brightblades commented:
It's basically a repeat of the same BS question of the same BS claim...
I was surprised by the downvotes, and thought it was a good opportunity for a meta question. How different does a question need to be to provide a good reason for not posting one that is similar?
I really like this site and hope it becomes more of a "scientific Snopes" for others who are looking into things. The answers are [hopefully] more referenced, the discussion is open for comments and alternative answers, etc. Great things.
So, at least one point I could bring up would be someone coming here and searching for Phiten and not finding anything. At what point should we hope that they just connect the dots and realizing that Phiten is the same, in principle, to ion bracelets and holograms and such? Or that they will run into those questions when searching for Phiten?
