    Apparently, wearing "modified Titanium" revitalises mind and body, according to my moronic father and This site
    and wiki.

    Somehow fatigue is cured through regulation of Bio currents..

    Am I alone in thinking that this is BS ? Well apparently some japanese athletes endorse it..

    but what would I know. I don't play sports. Clearly I'm not capable of understanding what my own body needs /sarcasm.

    Definitely BS.
    I love these quotes from their site.
    http://www.phitennz.com/index.pasp?pageid=4

    Um, "time-honoured"?
    How long does something have to be going to class as "time honoured"?
    A week?
    A couple of months?
    Titanium is relatively new to the list of workable metals (hell, it wasn't available as a pure metal until 1910, less than 100 years ago, or outside a lab until 1932).

    Titanium has bio-electricity?
    It's alive?

    Pure, unadulterated (but chic) BS.

    I thought it odd that if muscle fatigue was caused by lack of ions.. someone would feel happier after being zapped with static electricity, which is essentially a transfer of ions..

    Plus, I suspect it's a placebo effect.

    There's a couple of links on the relevant Wiki page - which also states that muscle fatigue is NOT caused by lack of ions.

    And (for the athletes promoting it) maybe the large sponsorship cheque.
    Money always makes me feel energetic.
