It seems possible that a metallic filling can provide its user with a AM receiver because just a diode effect is necessary, note that you can get a AM receiver with a specific stone (Galene? sorry, I do not know the word in English for that mineral). I have heard these folk stories that tell a human being is desperate because he/she hears voices in his/her head... a feasible explanation for some 'spiritualist mediums'? Perhaps a correlation must be developed between these two facts? oops, sorry, nothing in relation to AP :) Anyway, do not forget, as previously written, to tune your teeth once a year.
