    No it doesn't, and static magnets do not influence course of disease beyond placebo. See for instance this study: http://jama.ama-assn.org/content/290/11/1474.full....

    And here is a summary of a more recent study: http://www.archives-pmr.org/article/S0003-9993%281...

    Haha maybe like if its a strong magnet it could possibly make a blood clot over time like a long time

    No, it doesn't. When you get an MRI scan, extremely powerful magnets are used for this and no one's blood flow does anything special...

    no magnets do not affenct the blood but since blood is paramagnetic in nature, magnetic lines can pass throught it. i hope you have heard about some spas using mangnet. these spas are based on this principle. putting the magnet in the right position can reduce pain(that what our teacher said)
