No. Think of it as a wall in between of two magnetic objects. There is too much between it, and there is not enough iron.

YES ... a strong enough magnet can affect the iron in your blood.

Not normally an issue for most people, though, due to the little amount of iron in your blood.

However, it is why strong electro-magnetic fields can make people feel sick.

Given the wealth of misinformation already out there on this subject, I'll not belabor the point but the iron in hemoglobin is not ferromagnetic; in fact ferro-hemoglobin is weakly paramagnetic (and oxyhemoglobin is non-magnetic)

All those magnetic bracelets and magnetic shoe inserts are just natures way of saying you're not smart enough to deserve money.

Yes it affects us and some people wear magnetic belt to control their blood pressure as Iron content in our blood slows the process of flowing when it flows through the blood vessels under the magnetic belt.
