    I came across something called earthing and was wondering is any of it real?

    I couldn't find another post on this on TSR so i decided to make it.

    The basic concept is tapping in the to earth's unlimited electron supply to act as antioxidants.

    Anyone know anything about this or if/how it works?

    load of baloney. the earth doesn't have an unlimited supply of electrons, and as far as i thought, antioxidants were meant to stop free electrons in cells from doing damage, so how would harvesting the thing doing the damage be useful?

    The earth could only have a finite amount of electrons. You cant have an unlimitted amount of anything really (if you think about it)
    But yeah, its a load of rubbish. If you have electrons going from the earth into you....you're being electrocuted.

    edit - i just realised you're trying to get us to buy something off of amazon.
    Now i feel silly for taking the time to write a reply

    "I don't know of any creature who wears shoes apart from us. Anyway I bought an earthing sheet before reading the book as I was so totally convinced that this was the solution to my insomnia. The earthing sheet is very expensive for someone like me living on a shoestring, but I stuck it on the credit card much to my trepidation, and it arrived the very next day." - Amazon Reviews

    So basically electrons from the earth help you become better?

    Utter crap. They'll charge you if you go mentally insane and start rubbing your ass on the floor like a dog with an itchy butt but the claim that this has any medical effects is preposterous.

    The only charge an "earthing sheet" will produce will be the one on your credit card.

    Biggest load of crap I've ever seen. Essentially, the idea is that if we stopped wearing shoes, we wouldn't have health problems. Which makes me wonder why people who can't afford shoes tend to die much younger than those of us who can. Also, check out the authors' photos on Amazon: obvious nut-jobs.

    Let me guess, the person who discovered this isn't a medical doctor and is slightly unhinged. In any case, I really don't think electrocuting yourself trumps the discovery of antibiotics, pasteurisation, the treatment of cancer or diabetes. I'm gonna sit down and watch this and then laugh at how ridiculous this is.

    Without being funny before I watch this, I'm gonna bet £100 that this guy is American. lol
