The so-called "Kirlian aura" certainly is a curious and thought-provoking
phenomenon, but so far it has not received any serious scientific atten-
tion, and no actual "use" for it, other than as a neat special effect, has
been found.

Perhaps somewhere there are a few people who will hold to the notion that
it can be used as a diagnostic aid, but no good evidenced has been
produced that it is any better at predicting health than a simple guess.
