And I think this offers a wonderful opportunity to place another variant of snake-oil seller in the game world. I reckon if news of some mystery disease striking down people without any cure starts making the rounds, many snake-oil cures will start being created but what if someone finds out that electricity or EMF might be effective?

I can well imagine travelling salesmen/woman wandering from town to town claiming their "bio-electrical magnetic body recharger" can cure all your ills and protect you from the mystery disease. And what if one of them happens to have access to some radio sets - place all the radios in a circle and get the patient to sit in the middle, soaking up all those "helpful" radio waves.
All for a "reasonable" fee of course!

Who knows, maybe one of these snake-oil sellers might accidentally cure a patient...
