Re: PEMF

I genuinely felt much better while using the EMPpad Omnium1, although part of me still thinks this is just because I got to go lie on the floor twice a day for six weeks.

Income tax in the UK.

Dan Snow.

He promised it was temporary.
Looks like politicians haven't changed much over the years. :twisted:
