daily mail ...
Pensioner discovers 'miracle cure' for arthritis after glueing 2p coins to the inside of his shoes
Johnny Franks, 85, read that copper could help him bend his knees so stuck some in his trainers
He said he couldn't bend his knees but a month after wearing the shoes he is 'cured'
Experts are split on whether his new soles are actually working
The medical world has long debated whether copper can help ease the pain of arthritis.
While some sufferers swear by a bracelet, others use expensive insoles.
Johnny Franks, however, reckons he’s found the cheapest aid of all – 2p pieces glued to the inside of his shoes.

p.s ... anyone got any change ??????
If it worked like that we would all be cured. I read that item in the mail and i am sceptic sorry....
As well as RA I have now developed OA - it's particularly painful in my thumb joint - so after reading the article I rummaged around in my penny jar and found 3 x2p coins - pre-1992 as they apparently have a much higher copper content than later dates - I taped them inside the wrist splints I wear at night. I did think I might have "lost it" by doing something that sounds so daft - but speak as you find - I can now bend my thumb without pain and grasp things without dropping them!!!. OK I know the my thumb might have eased anyway - but I am just happy it seemed to work for me....but I do realise it's just for the OA and and is no use for RA. Don't you wish when you see a headline about ARTHRITIS some enlightened journalist would differentiate between the two?
Just rifling through my loose change ........
OMG!!! raiding the penny jar as we speak lol. Do you think there's an optimum amount of cash as I'm scared my socks will be really heavy
also think I'll rinse all my change as now Im worried it has been living on the cheesy feet of a previous owner!
good idea paula ... i never thought of that ..
im not sure its cured johnny franks arthritis ,, but looking at his picture its sure given him a good tan ..
Yes he's certainly a nice copper colour and a damned fine set of sparkly gnashers!
It would make a visit to the OT a bit more interesting though!!! Axx
Its not a new theory - copper bracelets for arthritis have been around for many years, and a lot of people swear by them. I'd personally be a bit wary, because copper is absorbed by the skin, and you can also have major problems if you end up with too much copper in your system (as a friend of mine did, when her rural tank water supply ended up with too high copper levels).
just how much copper is there in a twopenny piece?
