Why are neodymium magnets such a huge topic among the magnet manufacturer and their customers? It is a very important element used in producing generators, electric motors, audio, video, hybrid vehicles and much more. Another reason why it is so popular is because it is very inexpensive. In today's economy, people are constantly looking for ways to cut cost, this magnet is a financial life-saver when it comes to the cost of producing a product. Other products made from neodymium magnets include computer hard drives and even your cell phone. Another great benefit of this magnet is that it is used as a healing agent for people who suffer from pain such as back pain, fibromvalgia and arthritis.
According to scientist, Neodymium reserves are approximately 8 million tons. SPAMMY LINK - are derived from a mixture of iron, boron and neodymium. It is the powerful effects of boron and iron within the magnet that has motivated the creation of magnetic play sets for kids and the magnetic clasps in jewelry.

I am most confused, good sirs!  I was in need of a magnet in order to affix my recent telephone bill to the refrigerator pending payment, but when I tried to use one of your aforementioned magnets made out of spam, all I ended up with was a spam-encrusted bill and puddle of spam on the floor! 

I call shenanigans!

Apparently they don't heal poor eyesight: it's fibromyalgia.

And perforates their guts when they swallow more than one of these powerful magnets...

Unlike foreign bodies that can pass through the body with relatively little trouble, magnets can seriously damage the stomach or intestine by attracting each other through the lining of different loops of intestine. Ultimately, the magnets could cause a lack of blood flow in the lining and puncture the lining of the intestine.

That's why anyone who swallows multiple magnets should seek immediate medical attention, which could include surgery,
