The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is warning the public about some homeopathic pendants.
The necklaces are often advertised as quantum pendants and scalar energy pendants. Their makers claim they improve health and emotional well-being. They use ion technology but contain trace amounts of radioactive material.
I-EMA spokesperson Patti Thompson says you should probably not wear them for extended periods of time, or make sure you wear them over clothing, not directly on the skin.
If you decide to just get rid of your pendant, Thompson says it’s safe to go ahead and throw it away in the regular garbage.
