This is from today's (Wednesday Aug 27) Calgary Herald
newspaper, page A9:
"Wearing a gold wedding ring can help reduce the pain of
rheumatoid arthritus in the finger on which it is worn, says a
study being published Wednesday.
Doctors in City Hostpital, Birmingham, noted that the finger on
which a 62 year old woman wore her wedding ring was less affected
by the disease than her other fingers.
They then X-rayed the hands of 55 people who had suffered
arthritus for at least two years., 30 of whom wore rings and 25
did not. They found the knuckle joint of ring wearing fingers
were up to three times less badly eroded than the equivalent
joint on the other hand"
Hmm, increased gold ring sales and helping people too? How about
gold bands for other joints? Do you think this is a property of
the alloy gold or a result of the support to the finger?
