Many online videos have been made purportedly demonstrating the attraction of magnets to COVID-vaccine injection sites in the deltoid muscles. Dr. Schmitt reports the results of experimentation with a 18 mm in diameter by 2 mm neodynium magnets places at various locations of the body. Over the antigravity, postural muscles, attraction of the magnet was observed, in contrast to non-postural muscles. Schmitt hypothesizes that the magnets induce ordering of myoglobin molecules containing iron in a heme group for each molecule. Kendrew and Perutz shared a Nobel Prize for their work describing the structure of the myoglobin molecule using x-ray crystallography. This was the clue that possibly, under the influence of an external magnetic field, there could be an induced alignment of the magnetic domains of the iron atoms in the heme groups.
