I purchased a Joule Sous vide for cooking but there was a warning in the instructions about keeping the magnet in it away from pacemakers. How far away? Should I return it. How dangerous is this if I use it in the kitchen while my husband with a pacemaker is there?

I have booked a Radio Frequency facial and just discovered that apparently RF interfers with the pacemaker.
I am struggling to understand why a RF wand on my face will interfere with the PM? This is not a super strong RF as it is a beauty treatment.

Obviously I´m not going into the innards of nuclear reactors or hanging out near high-tension electric generators, but are there machines a person might occasionally, or even rarely, come in contact with t...
My new car is a 2016 Ford C-Max and it is powered by both gas and battery. Will this have any impact on my pacemaker
