If you Google copper you’ll find it has purported medical, magical, and mystical powers. Wiki thinks so highly of copper I’m not sure if I believe all of it, even with the 130 references. Being a nurse, however, I am aware of the necessity of having the right minerals in your diet. I once read about a condition wherein if your body is low on certain minerals, you’ll be inclined to eat dirt. Eewe.
Well, if copper really is that good for you, I should be in great shape because I’ve been handling it for almost three weeks straight. Aside from the trace amounts I am absorbing through my skin, and which will eventually make it into my bloodstream, tonight I got a big fat sliver of it in my finger. Not comfortable, and it took awhile to get it out.
