Q-Ray is an ionized bracelet that was marketed as a cure for arthritis pain. The Q-Ray uses language that sounds scientific but, the language that the makes of the Q-Ray use is not scientific at all. The makers of Q-Ray use pseudoscience language. As the book points out pseudoscience claims do not undergo peer reviews like real science does. The Q-Ray doesn't use testing or peer reviews, no scientific studies were done to back up the claims that the Q-Ray makes. Q-Ray claims it relieves pain, improves performance, restores energy and improves muscle flexibility. The makers of Q-Ray use testimonials from people who are not authorities in the field which can be very misleading for people and lead them to believe something that is not true. The Q-Ray claims to work by using natural holistic pain relief. The bracelet also claims to balance a person's positive and negative ions. This balance of ions will give give people pain relief.

The problem is Q-Ray doesn't do any of the things that it claims it can do. As the book notes there is no such thing as ionic imbalance of the body. The Q-Ray is pseudoscience and not real scientific at all. Scientific at all. Since making false or misleading claims are against the law. Q-Ray no longer puts false claims on its website, but still uses a lot of pseudoscience language on the website. If it's too good to be true it usually is, which is the case with Q-Ray
