The Hong Kong government has just banned a type of necklace pendant because of excessive levels of radioactivity, specifically uranium, thorium -232 and -238. Prolonged use of the necklace will lead to skin cancer. Earlier last month two similar neckalce imports were also banned for the same reason.

As someone mentioned.. If it really does work.. what better way than to scinetifically prove and publish these findings in scintific-journals, medical joulrnals etc. to be able to sell these products to healtcare, goverment, military so on and so forth..
Things you never see may actaully not exist... And sometimes you may see things that does not exist :-)

Maybe, there is more than placebo effect here-perhaps more insidious.

I understand your point of view. Sometimes its difficult(if not impossible) to grasp something that is out of mainstream science.
Here is one of the people that is at the forefront of alternative medicine/science.
sometimes there maybe thousands, if not millions of mainstream health/science articles that maybe you might have overlook this that is not in the mainstream.
Please take note that I am not advertising here. I am not at all related in whatsoever way to the website. It is just some information to share.
The placebo effect only belongs to those people who's sickness in the body and mind is at a minimum level, which they can change through positive thinking etc. What I'm talking about is how about those people who is bed ridden for years, those that have had their body ravaged by disease, and their conditions able to be reversed. I'm sure a simple mind game or placebo wont simple pull them out their terrible scenario. Please give me a sample or actually testimony that placebo is that powerful, as I have yet to see it.
I agree that sometimes something that we dont see might not actually exist. But who are we to judge wether it exists or not? Please read Nicola Tesla's work and compare it Thomas Edison's work. Which person here do you find more in mainstream science, when in fact it was Tesla who invented the alternative current as opposed to Edison who invented direct current.( Currently more that 90% of our worlds electricity system is run on alternating current.) If you really researched Nicola Tesla's finding's and put 2 and 2 together, you will find out why inventions that he ventured into, such as "free energy", is not mentioned in mainstream science.
What we really can do is not just believe blindly and try for ourselves wether is really works or not. So for me, its not a matter of believe, but a problem-reaction-solution strategy. Maybe it will not work for you, but it works for someone else. And if it works for other's, it does not necessarily means a placebo effect.
Oh yeah, and if you asked me about Phiten products, I personally would not buy it as I am using other products already.

I think original product(or should I say the first company to come out with the energy pendant) intended to help people in the long run. Then came the copy cat's, who tried to make more profits from it as they found a very tantilising market here, started adding other minerals to it(reducing the main ingredient, which is some specific lava) thus sparking off radiation, due to the mixture the whole.( cheaper cost of production).

Something like some people believe faith healing, spiritual healing or looking for bomoh,etc,etc, is all hocus pocus

The whole point of science is that view we do NOT know everything.. And that is why trying to verify or disprove theories, do double-blind studies, etc, becomes importnant. For religion, priests, shamans, new age etc. "proof" is simply just a matter of belief or an "example" that prooves the belief.
Scinece always seeks the answers to all the questions we have.. Religion, Newage, "Snake-oil"-sellers already have THE answer before the question even is formulated...

about Science, Yes you are right, that we do not know everything and need science to find some answers or theory's to it. But dont you think there is alot of suppressed knowledge in our society?(and if you look further, you find that these suppressed knowledge is always downplayed as it has no economic benefit to govt's or large multinational companies, when in fact it can greatly empower a person or individual to get things done without help from the govt etc)
Science from humans is basically from an observable view point, i.e. you need light to see the evidence. But how about science from the unobservable view point? I'm sure you have heard scientists theorizing about dark matter is part of 90% of the whole universe? This to me makes me wonder how can science ever study something such as dark matter when even light can't make it observable to our eyes.

I mean some people dont even believe in divine healing -> just say a few prayers, then sickness healed, no medicine needed. Eastern cultures have more of this, no illness, can just vomit blood & die due to some charm. Much like religious/spiritual beliefs, no concrete proof.
A person who does believe in existence of spirits/ghosts will not believe a place a haunted.
Those who believe purely in science believe all that is hocus pocus. Therefore -> they will likely to believe all this energy thing is hocus pocus too, just wear something, can be better.
Similar to alternative/traditional medicine (btw, I use traditional medicine), some people will laugh at the notion that cupping, acupunture is good.
