Meet the 50-year-old human magnet

Allison, 50, an accounts manager, says coins, safety pins, magnets, spanners and even a metal lid from a vaseline pot can stick to her body for up to 45 minutes without falling off.
When the pulse is at its peak, she can even dance in her living room without disturbing these objects.

For as long as she can remember, she explains, her body has set off car alarms, interrupted the TV signal and blown out light bulbs. When she was a child, her parents stopped buying her watches because her magnetic field kept interfering with the timing mechanism.
Every person has a subtle electromagnetic field flowing through their bodies - but most of us are unaware of its presence. However, Allison of Holloway in North London, says she first noticed the effects of her magnetism when she was in a nursery school.
As she grew up, she started keeping a diary and realised the magnetic pulses were strongest at the end of each menstrual cycle.

“On one occasion, I had a dreadful experience at the supermarket. When I reached the check-out the till machine started to misbehave and it was obvious I had caused it.
“The man on the checkout started shouting at me and accused me of putting a voodoo curse on his till,” recalled Allison. Doctors have told Allison that her magnetism may be caused by high stress levels and have urged her to take steps to relax. She said her one wish is to be tested by electromagnetism specialists so she can understand the cause behind her condition. She says her body can emit a negative or positive charge, depending on the time of the month.
