Magnetic Field Prevent Heart Attacks

Condition of the blood is too thick can cause damage to blood vessels, to increase the risk of heart attack. However, you do not worry. Research from Temple University, China, began to find a solution. The study, led by Professor Rongjia Tao has found that the magnetic field can help to reduce the viscosity of human blood and prevent heart attacks.
Tao is also Head of the Physics Department at Temple University's magnetic field at first tried to reduce the viscosity of oil in the engine and hose. However, later he applied this method to thin the blood in the circulatory system of the human body. Therefore, many red blood cells contain iron. In the experiment, the Tao can reduce blood viscosity by 20-30 percent by putting someone in a magnetic field with a strength of 1.3 Tesla (international unit for magnetic intensity) for one minute. Tao and friends the others had carried out tests on a number of blood samples in the laboratory Temple. The result, they found a magnetic field capable of separating red blood cells, causing the cells were incorporated in the short circuit, and the blood circulation. The series of red blood cells are larger than a single red blood cell, so that they flow into the center and reduces friction with the walls of blood vessels. The fall in viscosity, the effect of blood cells can flow freely. When the magnetic field is removed, the blood viscosity will gradually return, but within a few hours later. "By choosing the strength and duration of a suitable magnetic field, we will be able to control the aggregate size of red blood cells to control blood viscosity," Tao said, as quoted by page . "Magneto-rheological method provides an effective way to control blood viscosity in the range selected." Currently, the only way to thin the blood merely through drugs like aspirin. However, taking this drug continuously will cause side effects that are not good for health. According to Tao, the method of magnetic field is not only safer, but can also be done repeatedly. When the magnetic field is applied again, the blood viscosity will be reduced again. He also adds viscosity reduction did not affect the normal function of red blood cells. However, Tao said the research will be needed further. He hopes eventually accepted this therapy to prevent heart disease. Tao and his former student, to "Colin" Huang, now sits in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Michigan and have published their research.
