But wading through the jargon, the claim here that has caught attention is this – “Nephrite-Jade amulets, a calcium-ferromagnesian silicate, may prevent COVID-19.” What? I suspect that Dr. Bility has already received some pushback prior to getting the very innocent query from Retraction Watch, but such a response is extremely telling. Sorry, Dr. Bility, but with that reaction you just branded yourself a crank and a pseudoscientist. Dr. Bility then back with up with unjustified accusations of racism. This would all be merely amusing if the authors were not promoting magic amulets as a prevention for a serious pandemic.
