Apparently, around 30 years ago a chiropractor called ‘Dr’ Kenzo Kase invented a ‘magic tape’ that can work all sorts of wonders on muscles and joints. Rather than being a stiff, supportive, structure, it allegedly mimics the flexibility of skin.
Today, the science section of the guardian provided an extended advertorial for this product under the heading, “Dr Kenzo Kase: My magic tape can aid injured muscles.” (frozen page, change log)
It’s in the usually reliable science section of the Guardian, so I would hope that there is some pretty strong evidence to support the use of the word ‘magic’.
So, I thought that I would share the results of five minutes ‘googling’ and a bit of thought. The sort of thing I’d expect from a proper professional journalist. It’s not a happy story.
