Nano-cards sound better than snake oil

Abstract:
Developed by Singapore’s Equation NanoTech Pte Ltd, the so-called “nano-power cards” are made of several layers of materials coated with plastic, with diverse applications ranging from relief of pain and insomnia to restoring male vitality and eliminating unpleasant smells.

The cards contain organic material processed into nano-scale particles, equal to one-billionth of one metre, or 10 nanometres. Here how it works: these undisclosed organic materials, the size of human DNA, emit Far Infrared Rays (FIRs) when activated by body heat or rising temperatures.

(Ed.'s note: I think the closing line says it all "People should be sceptical until they’re fully informed of scientific evidence that such products really work.")
