Oh, you didn’t know that grounding yourself to the earth with copper wires while you sleep has health benefits? Thanks to Dr. Mercola, now you do.

A helpful twitter user offered balancedbyearth.com as a scholarly reference, which features a youtube video of none other than Mercola and Oz, together. How does earthing help? Well, buy a foam mattress for $2400 from their store and find out! “The Earth is the ultimate source of healing energy. You were born to be connected to it. The Earthing Bed does just that…connects you to that powerful and endless supply of free electrons while you sleep.”

Hopefully you’ve already seen Dr Oz getting slapped around by the Senate in perhaps the only interesting broadcast in CSPAN history. As you might suspect, Mercola got slapped around too – by the FDA in 2005, 2006, and again in 2011.

Why spend all that money on quacks? Look up “earthing” on youtube and you’ll find how to DIY with nothing more than a copper wire!
