Just in time for Super Bowl week, Sports Illustrated shares some pretty wild news about top-line pro and college football players using some dubious products with hopes of helping their on-field performance. Care to spritz a little deer antler mist under your tongue anyone? You can read the full report here. And check out the video below as an SI reporter tests out the validity of stickers that supposedly deflect energy-draining cellphone waves from the football players who wear them.
The Museum of Questionable Medical Devices - an exhibit at the Science Museum of Minnesota is listed as number 10 in a list of "12 Oddly Specific Museums Preserving Our History". The collection of medical quackery devices - such as the Foot-operated Breast Enlarger or the amazing Psycograph (see above) - was donated to SMM by curator Bob McCoy and can be found in the Collections gallery on the 4th floor. Or you can read about it at the MQMD official website. Remember: no matter what ails you, Bob can lead you to believe he's curing it.
