Kinoki foot pads

with 3 comments

Kinoki foot pads are another of the many mystical medical products so frequently found on late night infomercials.   They claim to pull toxins out of your feet while you sleep which, according to them, is how a tree works.  I know that there is a segment of the population who always falls for whatever snake oil cure-all comes along, but I was surprised to see an animated discussion over at BoingBoing as to whether or not these things works.  As a general rule, if a product is cited as being an ancient Japanese secret held by reflexologists then no, it does not work.

  1. I love the list of symptoms its meant to cure:

    -Headaches
    -Backaches
    -Mood changes
    -Depression
    -Fatigue
    -Insomnia
    -Weak immune system
    -Basically f’ing every symptom we can fit on the screen

    They should team up with the ‘church’ of Scientology. between these and Dianetics, you’d be the happiest, healthiest (poorest) person on earth!

  3. I can tell that this is not the first time at all that you write about this topic. Why have you decided to write about it again?
