Electromagnetic Fields

The Earth is a huge magnetic sphere. Living things have been tied to the Earth's natural magnetic field from the time that life began. This magnetic field permeates and contributes to all life on the planet by the generation of what we call the atmosphere. This field varies in strength and consistency through the ages and, with this variance, so too does life on the planet change. Our bodies own magnetic frequencies and bio-field patterns react to this variance of the Earth's field. All matter on Earth assists in creating this field and so becomes charged with this magnetic resonance, displaying different results, dependant on the substance. Each individual cell--as well as entire organisms--senses and derives timing information from the natural cycles of the geomagnetic field. As all matter is made up of magnetic resonant field patterns, of varying strength and frequencies, applying a magnetic device of any configuration will produce an effect one way or another.

The healers-of-old knew the benefits and curative powers fo magnetic lodestones when properly placed along the meridian lines of energy and not necessarily at the area of pain. Lodestones, being basically iron oxide, have the capacity to retain and exhibit a magnetic field. These lodestones have been charged by the Earth, and thus are harmoniously in tune with the human bodies' frequencies as well, they have for thousands of years been successfully used in the healing arts. These healers continued their practice through the ages, since the patients could see the results and then utilized the methodology themselves. Although this same methodology is still practiced with desired results in some cultures today, twenty-first century man is destroying the healing effects with modern materials.

Modern magnetic therapy is based on traditional ideas, but uses stronger and "out of phase" magnetic materials. Most everyone considers magnetism a basic and natural force similar to the magnetic field exhibited by the field of an artificial permanent or electromagnet has a distinct man-made flavor within the internal structure or matrix of the field itself. The frequency of the field is the governing factor as to whether the field is beneficial or harmful. The field of a permanent magnet receives its frequency when energized, depending on the energizing process and the composition of the magnet itself, resulting in the frequency of the final product.

Powerful permanent magnets have their matrix altered by the artificial energizing processes used, and do not conform to the natural complex magnetic field structure of the human bio-organism, or that of the planet. These processes use artificial electrical energy, which has within its structure a frequency composition different to that of nature. This is why lodestones work well in healing situations since they have the required field strength and attenuation to the life force of the planet.

Human use of electromagnetism for power and communications has produced an abnormal electromagnetic environment unlike anything that existed before. More than a thousand scientific papers on this topic are published each year. Both epidemiological and laboratory studies exist, indicating that abnormal frequencies, regardless of their frequencies, produce increased health risks.

What is an Electromagnetic Field?

All electromagnetic fields are force fields, carrying energy and capable of producing an action at a distance. These fields have characteristics of both waves and particles. An electric current flowing in a wire or coil produces its own magnetic field. A compass needle will swing at right angles to the wire. What is the difference between an electric field and a magnetic field? Actually both are usually all around us, since they are present wherever there is electricity. Both an electric and a magnetic field exist around power lines, appliances, light fixtures, and electric wiring; but electromagnetic fields are generated only when current is flowing through a wire. The voltage on a wire produces electric fields.

If you plug in a lamp or an appliance, even though it is not turned on, it will produce an electric field. When the light is lit or the appliance is running, both an electric and electromagnetic field will be present. A permanent magnetic field is stationary or still, unless you are moving the magnet. Permanent magnets are completely safe, and are not involved in this controversy. Magnetic fields are produced by moving electrical currents, and the field of a bar magnet is produced by the spinning electrons around the atomic nuclei in the iron material of the magnet itself. In order to act as a "magnet," these atoms must be lined up in the same direction so that the individual magnetic fields combine to produce one big field. If a magnet is dropped on a hard floor, the magnetic field is destroyed because the atoms are "shaken up" and their direction is changed, resulting in a random pattern.

When an electrical current flows in a wire, the movement of the electrons produces a similar field in space, but one that is oriented around the wire. If the current is a DC (direct current), the magnetic field is steady, like that form a permanent magnet. The strength of the magnetic field depends upon the amount of current flowing in the wire--the more current there is, the stronger the magnetic field will be. If the current in the wire is fluctuating, the magnetic field will have the same fluctuations. We characterize the field in this case on the basis of the rate, or frequency of fluctuation. All of the possible frequencies of electromagnetic waves or fields can be put onto an electromagnetic spectrum, starting with the slowest frequencies and going to the highest. The electromagnetic spectrum is usually pictured as a line that increases from zero, to trillions of cycles per second. About three-fourths up the frequency spectrum is something we are very familiar with--light.

Sunlight, as well as the light from electric lights, is the same thing as the magnetic field. It is produced by the movement of electrons and has the same characteristics as the Earth's magnetic field, radio waves, and X-rays. It is an electromagnetic field, but one for which we have developed specific anatomical detectors--our eyes. Electrical currents flow in living organisms and they produce magnetic fields that extend outside of the body and can be influenced by external magnetic fields as well. The magnetic field produced by the brain is easily detected using a special magnetometer.

Extra low frequency magnetic fields, such as those from 50 & 60 Hz systems, penetrate even a cast iron bath tub with little attenuation. They freely intrude our homes and our bodies. They are biologically active at intensities of a milligauss (mG) or less.

The flow of the electrical currents in the brain produce a magnetic field that can be measured and analyzed several feet away from the head. We, and all other living things, are surrounded by a magnetic field extending out into space from our bodies, and the fields from the brain reflect what is happening in the brain. Living organisms have the ability to somehow sense these minute daily cycles in the Earth's magnetic field and to use them to time their biological cycles.

Electronics 101

If two electrons are separated by one centimeter, each electron will experience a repulsive force of 2.3X10-24 gram equivalents. Doubling the separation will reduce the force to one quarter. Doubling the number of electrons on one side will double the repulsive force acting on the lone electron on the other side. Most matter is neutral, so it contains an equal number of protons and electrons. However, sometimes electrons are deliberately or accidentally removed from one object, and deposited onto another object. If a proton is placed near these two charged objects, the proton will be attracted to the negative object, which has excess electrons, and simultaneously repelled from the positive one, which is missing some electrons. The total force acting on the proton is a measure of the electric field that the proton is exposed to. The direction of the force that acts on the proton is the same as the direction of the electric field and the strength of the force is proportional to the strength of the electric field. If an electron were substituted for the proton, the force would be of the same strength, but in the opposite direction of the electric field. If two protons "tied" together were substituted for the single proton, they would experience twice as much total force.

If the terminals of a battery are connected to two large metal plates, the + plate will lose some electrons, which will flow through the battery to the - plate. A battery acts as an electron pump, establishing an electric field between the plates. A proton would be attracted toward the - plate and repelled from the + plate. The strength of this electric field equals the battery voltage divided by the distance between the plates (usually measured in meters). For example, if the battery is 1.5 volts and the spacing is one meter, the electric field is 1.5 volts per meter (V/m), but if the spacing is reduced to ½ meter, the electric field increases to 3V/m, which doubles the force that a single proton, if placed in the center, would experience. Any charged particle placed between the plates would experience a force downward if the particle were positive, or upward if negative.

All conductive bodies contain charged particles that can freely move around. In metals these particles are the electrons from the outer part of the atom. In conductive liquids such as salt water, the conductive particles are called ions: positively charged sodium atoms and negatively charged chlorine atoms, which can move through the water. If a conductive body is placed between the plates, the charged particles inside the conductor will quickly shift position a little. The charged particles shift position simply because they are responding to the electric field from the battery and metal plates. Because no electric field now exists within the conductive body, the internal charged particles have stopped moving and the configuration is stable. If the battery is subsequently reconnected to the plates in reverse, all charges will reorient so that - and + ultimately interchange after a small fraction of a second. The movement of charges is defined as an electric current, so that during that brief time the charges in the conductive body are reorienting themselves, a current is flowing. At all other times (when charges are stable), no current flows. Therefore, inside a conductive body, no current flows and no internal electric field exists except during the periods when the outside electric field is changing.

A changing electric field can produce a magnetic field. The electric field is fundamental; the magnetic force arises directly from the electric force. In two parallel wires each 40" (100 cm) long and are one cm apart and carry one amp of current will attract each other with a force of 0.002-gram equivalents due to the magnetic force. The force will double if the current in either wire is doubled or if the separation is reduced to ½ cm. If the direction of current in one of the wires is reversed, the force will become repulsive, but will remain the same strength. The current in the first wire creates a magnetic field that acts on the current in the second wire. In a similar way, the second wire also acts on the first. The attraction is mutual; the first wire attracts the second with the same amount of force that the second attracts the first. No charge will actually flow through the air gap between them, yet a magnetic field will be created in that gap as if the charge were flowing. The amount of magnetic force a wire experiences is proportional to the product of magnetic field strength that the wire is subjected to, times the length of the wire, times the amount of current (in amps) the wire is carrying. The direction of the force is at right angles both to the direction of the magnetic field and the direction of the current.

Besides being influenced by a magnetic field, a wire that is carrying a current also produces a magnetic field. If the wire is long, the field strength is double at half the distance from the wire and is four times as much at a quarter the distance. Milligauss is a unit of flux density, not magnetic field strength, but the difference is not important. A wire that carries one amp will have a magnetic field of 200 milligauss (mG), a distance of one cm away. At two cm the field will be one-half as much. Certain types of metal--iron, steel, nickel, and vanadium--internally produce this circulating current without the help of a battery or wires. These metals are called ferromagnetic and their single outer electrons each produce a tiny, circulating current due to the electron orbits. All electrons in a Ferro magnet (if fully magnetized) spin in the same direction. If two such magnets are brought close together with the North of one facing the South of the other, they will attract. This attraction is because the electron currents spin in the same direction around the edge of the magnets. If the North of a magnet is brought close to the North of another magnet, they will repel, because the electron currents are circulating in opposite directions.

A changing magnetic field can create an electric field. This is the basis of power transformers and electric power generation. One coil of wire is placed close to another. An increasing current flow is established in the first coil, which creates an increasing magnetic field. The increasing magnetic field causes electrons to circulate (current) around the second coil in such a way as to oppose the increasing magnetic field that the first coil is trying to establish. The changing magnetic field creates an electric field directly in the wire, which causes electrons in the wire to move. The amount of voltage generated is proportional to the total length of wire in all the loops. A changing magnetic field will also create an electric field in the human body, which causes a current to flow. The current is at right angles to the direction of the changing magnetic field, and is strongest near the extremities of a person. Current tends to flow along the outer surface of the body. Its strength is proportional to the rate at which the field changes.

For a 60 Hz (60 oscillations per second) field with strength of three milligauss, a current is created in an adult, which is on average, one-billionth amp per square centimeter of cross-sectional area. For these currents induced by magnetic fields, the current per area increases proportional to the linear size of the organism. An animal only 1/10 the size of an adult human would average 1/10 as much current per area. An AC electric field will also create a current in the body. This current usually flows in the same direction as the electric field and is fairly uniform throughout the body. As with the magnetic field current, the current from an AC electric field is proportional to the frequency multiplied by the strength. For an adult, a 2000 V/m electric field at 60 Hz will create, on average, one-billionth amp per square cm. Unlike the case of magnetic current, the electric current per square centimeter does not scale down for a small animal.

The changing electric and magnetic effects make possible electromagnetic waves (radio waves). These waves are usually emitted from a wire (antenna) connected to an oscillator (in essence, a battery changing polarity very fast). The antenna rapidly oscillates between + and -, creating a rapidly changing electric field. Most radio waves are in the frequency range from half a million to several billion oscillations per second. That rapidly changing electric field creates a rapidly changing magnetic field. The magnetic field, in turn, creates an electric field, which reinforces the existing electric field. Because of this reinforcement, the strength of the electric field far from the antenna is much greater than it would be without the reinforcement. For example, if a one-foot antenna is connected to one volt DC (electric field is not oscillating), the electric field one mile away will be 1/100 billion V/m.

However, if that same one volt is continuously reversed 200 million times per second (proper frequency for a one foot antenna), the peak electric field one mile away will be 1/3000 V/m, or 33 million times higher. By using radio waves, the fields can be carried a long distance. For the AC frequencies typically encountered in the home (60, 180, and 300 oscillations per second are typical from power line current, and up to 17,000-35,000 oscillations from the horizontal scan of TV and computer monitors), antennas and coils would have to be at least several miles long to emit true radio waves. Because the devices that emit these fields (vacuum cleaners, fluorescent lights, etc.) are much smaller than that, household sources of fields are often pure magnetic (from wires or coils that carry AC current), pure electric (from metal plates or wires that are connected to the electric "hot" wire, regardless of whether any current is present), or some mix of magnetic and electric. Unlike radio waves, household field sources tend to weaken quickly in strength when you're more than a few feet away.

Natural Electromagnetic Fields

The spinning core of molten iron miles beneath the surface of the Earth creates a dipole magnetic field, like a bar magnet. The energy of the sun distorts and perturbs this simple field into a unique structure known as the magnetosphere. The strength of the Earth's magnetic field averages about half a gauss. Its daily change in strength is less than 0.1 gauss. Compared with the 200-gauss strength of the magnet that holds a refrigerator door closed, this seems miniscule. The sun constantly gives off a solar wind, composed of high-energy atomic particles. These particles travel through space at great speed and crash into the outer layers of the Earth's magnetic field, compressing it until its energy matches that of the solar wind. The area of interaction between these two forces is called the bow-shock region. The sun's magnetic field is organized into sectors, much like the segments of an orange. Alternate sectors have their fields directed inward and outward, so that as the sun rotates, a slight change is produced as each sector boundary crosses the line connecting the sun with the Earth. On the side away from the sun, the magnetic field is drawn out into a long magneto tail, which stretches away from the Earth far into space. It contains vast stores of energy and demonstrates reliable daily fluctuations in strength, as well as longer periodic changes. It is subject to sudden, massive storms produced by energetic events on the sun. Over geologic time, it exhibits strange reversals of polarity.

The Earth rotates on a day-night cycle within this complex field. The magnetosphere does not rotate but remains fixed in space, with one side always facing the sun. Because of this, any given spot on the surface of the Earth is in a constantly changing magnetic field. The daily rise and fall in the strength of this field causes biological rhythms. Magnetic storms appear to have a direct effect on the operations of the human brain. This interaction results in the generation of enormous electrical currents with billions of watts. It also results in the production of ionizing radiation and various electromagnetic waves. The EMF energy of the earth is usually absorbed through the feet. There is a point on the sole near the upper center of the foot, through which it is specifically drawn up. Lying on the ground is also a way of recharging. The earthly forces rebalance the heavenly forces.

Water can be energized with specific magnetic fields that aid life compared to untreated water. Water that comes up out of the earth, or is brought up out of the earth, looses it's charge after ninety-two hours and thus any water having magnetic healing properties, such as the water from Lourdes, must be used soon after taking the sample from its source. Any water brought up from an underground source and used to energize a treatment device, looses all effectiveness in ninety-two hours as well. If the treatment device also contains magnets or a mechanism to spiral the water (clockwise in Northern hemisphere), then a small helpful effect is imparted to the water for a limited time. Magnetic field generators are available that impart a magnetic field to the water, designed purposefully for bio-magnetic field patterns based on the frequencies of the human bio-field. This water is then used in the treatment of ailments, with positive results. With life on Earth being water-based, magnetizing water before use, whether on plants or humans, will give better health and vitality.

The Magnetic Organ

In 1975, a researcher noticed that the bacteria he was studying always clustered at the north side of their culture dish. Even if he turned the dish so that they were at the south end and left it overnight, the next morning the bacteria were back at the north side. Each bacterium contained a chain of tiny magnets! The magnets were actually crystals of the natural magnetic mineral magnetite, the original lodestone of preliterate peoples. Somehow, the bacteria absorbed the soluble components from the water and put them together in their bodies as the insoluble crystalline chain. In 1971, another researcher reported on a lengthy series of experiments with pigeons. He found the same crystals of magnetite, as a submicroscopic mass located on the surface of the pigeon's brain. He found that the mass of crystals was full of nerve fibers that seemed to go into the brain. The magnetite crystals "tell" the pigeon's brain the exact direction of the Earth's magnetic field, and the pigeon uses this information to navigate with its amazing precision. The salamander has two separate magnetic navigational systems. One provides a simple compass, so that when traveling "cross country," it will go in a straight line. The other system enables it to return to the exact spot where it was hatched from its egg in order to mate and lay more eggs. The human "magnetic organ" has been found in the posterior wall of the ethmoid sinus, just in front of the pituitary gland. Humans have an innate ability to sense the direction of magnetic north, and this ability can be blocked by placing a bar magnet against a person's forehead for only fifteen minutes! The directional sense is disturbed for as long as two hours after application of the magnet. It is a sense organ that informs the organism of the direction of the Earth's magnetic field. Nature has provided us with yet another organ that also senses the field and extracts even more significant information from it.

The Pineal Gland's Magnetic Sense

The pineal gland is the "clock" that controls biological cycles. The cyclic pattern of sleep-wakefulness is dependent upon the level of melatonin secretion by the pineal. The pineal gland is the principal structure in the brain that is directly sensitive to the Earth's magnetic field. As a result, it functions abnormally when exposed to abnormal fields. Because the pineal produces a host of psychoactive chemicals (such as melatonin, dopamine, serotonin, and others), its abnormal functioning may result in a variety of neurological and behavioral abnormalities. It was first determined that a part of the output of the retina is diverted to the pineal, where it senses the day-night cycle and melatonin secretion is adjusted accordingly. The pineal is also sensitive to the daily cyclic pattern in the Earth's magnetic field. Abnormal secretion of hormones by the pineal is linked to many behavioral abnormalities. The primary effect of a chronically abnormal biocycle is the production of chronic stress syndrome a condition that produces a wide variety of health problems, including a marked decline in competency of the immune system. Nature intended the pineal to simultaneously receive the same signals from the daily pattern of day-night and the same rise and fall in strength of the geomagnetic field. Obviously, when one or both signals are abnormal, the pineal does not respond in the normal fashion, and the body's biological cycles become disturbed--with important health results. Over two billion years of evolution, living things have taken advantage of the two portions of the electromagnetic spectrum that could be depended upon to always be present: the geomagnetic field and visible light. Life developed specific organs to sense the geomagnetic field and to derive timing information from it just as it developed specific organs to sense and derive information from light.

The Human Crystal

The key to understanding the assimilation of energy into our physical structure is through the awareness of our bodies as a series of synchronous, interacting crystal structures. The body on this level is linked by oscillating solid and liquid crystals that form an overall energy pattern for the total body. Each organ, gland, nerve system, cell and protein structure--even the tissue salts in the body--shows a level of organization with some degree of crystalline-like function. Marcel Vogel, the world-renowned crystal expert, has pointed out that the human energy field exists as an array of oscillating energy points which have a layered structure and a definite symmetry. He points out that these properties fulfill the definition of a normal crystal in material form. Our bone structure has long been recognized as a solid crystal structure with piezoelectric properties. A piezoelectric effect is the creation of an electromagnetic field pulse when a crystalline structure is physically stressed or pushed out of its normal shape. As a solid crystal, it has the ability to convert vibrational energy, such as sound or light, into magnetic and electric energy. Crystals can absorb, store, convert, amplify, transduce and transmit vibrational energies, which have biological effects. Psychic healing energies alter the measurable electromagnetic pattern of a crystal, suggesting that subtle energies can alter the physical structure of a crystal. When physical stress or an electromagnetic field (EMF) is applied to a piezoelectric crystal, the crystal will change shape and generate an EMF. Bone, quartz crystal and tourmaline are among the few crystal forms with piezoelectric properties.

Studies suggest that the crystalline-like components of the extra cellular matrix of bone, such as collagen and proteoglycans, possess piezoelectric qualities. Mineralized tissue such as cartilage, dentin, teeth in general and relatively non-mineralized tissues such as keratin in skin, elastin, artery tissue, connective tissue (tendons and ligaments), and even some amino acid crystals (glysine, proline and hydroxyproline) all have piezoelectric properties. The main forces which create pulsed piezoelectric EMFs in bone are the anti-gravity muscles, the cardiovascular system, voluntary muscles and impact with the environment. Projected EMFs have the ability to create a piezoelectric response in bone. These fields have biological activity affecting: cell nutrition, local pH control, enzyme activation and suppression, orientation of intra and extra cellular macromolecules, migratory and reproductive activity of cells, synthetic capacity and specialized function of cells, contractility and permeability of cell membranes, and energy transfer. Another type of electric or electromagnetic field response is also found in bone structure, called streaming potentials, an electrical field created by the flow of ions, charged solutes and cells such as red blood cells through the tissues, carried by extra cellular fluids such as blood through the extra cellular matrix. When the bone is even subtly bent from pressure by such events as walking or even by the pulse of our arteries, the extra cellular fluids are pumped through the bone. A charge is created by the electrostatic interaction of the charged fluids moving past the fixed charge in the crystalline bone structure. These fluids interact with the piezo fields of bone.

Liquid Crystals

There are other forms of crystalline-like systems in the body, and one of the most important is the liquid crystal. A liquid crystal is technically defined as having form, liquid properties, stored information and a measurable electromagnetic field. A liquid crystal can act simultaneously as liquid and crystal. The larger liquid crystal systems include fatty tissue, muscle and nerve tissue, the lymphatic system, white blood cells, and the various pleural and peritoneal linings. Muscle and nerve tissue exist as liquid crystal systems held in shape by bone and skin systems. The muscles have also been shown to have some piezoelectric properties. On a cell level, all cells and cell membranes are considered liquid crystals. These include the plasma membrane, mitochondrial membrane, smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum, nuclear membranes and chloroplast membranes. Bodily fluids also have crystal qualities. A water molecule contains the potential forms of all crystals in its primary form of a tetrahedron. Water can bring all different forms of ions into a crystalline state an hold them in solution. The more structured the water is, the higher concentration of ions it can hold. One of the most important ion solutions is the dissolved cell salts. When the body cells and tissues become diseased or cancerous, the crystalline protein structures no longer have the proper configuration to maintain the water in a structured state.

Ions and other solutes in the cell consequently become redistributed by the new pattern of unstructured water. If the water in the cell, extra cellular fluid or blood plasma becomes structured, it will then be able to attract and hold more ions by virtue of its hydration shell patterns. Identical crystal resonant fields emanated by micronutrients are attracted to larger resonant fields emanated by the organism's larger crystalline and liquid crystalline patterns. This explains how micronutrients, homeopathic remedies, etc., through vibrating crystalline fields, are drawn to the appropriate resonating crystalline sites. In An Atlas of Cellular Oscillators by P.R. Rapp, research in over 450 papers is cited in cataloging an atlas of biological and biochemical oscillators with a periodicity of one hour or less. This includes oscillations in enzyme-catalyzed reactions such as photosynthesis, oscillations in protein synthesis, and oscillations in cell membranes, secretory cells, neuronal cells, skeletal cells, smooth cells, heart muscle cells and cell movement. In a healthy state, the body's structures are a multi-leveled series of interacting systems and subsystems that resonate harmoniously. From this perspective, disease occurs when this synchronicity is thrown into disharmony. Each organ system or subsystem gives off a specific measurable electromagnetic field. The EMFs are measurable, subtle fields that can have great effect on the behavior of an organism.

Man-made Electromagnetic Fields

Life on earth evolved under geomagnetic fields and electromagnetic forces that have been constant for hundreds of millions of years. All that changed a little over 100 years ago, when Thomas Edison built the first power station in New York City. Before 1900, the Earth's electromagnetic field was composed simply of the field and its associated micro pulsations, visible light, and random discharges of lightning. We swim in a sea of energy that is almost totally man-made. Silicon sensors are already calling to each other. Soon, countless communicating microchips, embedded everywhere, will be sending streams of encoded electrical energy through glass, steel, concrete, bone and flesh. The exposure of living organisms to abnormal electromagnetic fields results in significant abnormalities in physiology and function. The cells of the brain and central nervous system are particularly sensitive to abnormal fields. The developing central nervous system of the fetus or the newborn is particularly sensitive. These abnormal fields arise primarily from external sources. Most are unaware of the substantial risks associated with the use of many devices in their own homes. 60-Hz fields of only 3 milligauss have been shown to be significantly related to increase in cancer rates.


Microwaves are very short waves of electromagnetic energy that travel at the speed of light. Microwave ovens contain a magnetron, a tube in which electrons are affected by magnetic and electric fields in such a way as to produce micro wavelength radiation at about 2450 Megahertz (MHz) or 2.45 Gigahertz (GHz). This microwave radiation interacts with the molecules in food. All wave energy changes polarity from positive to negative with each cycle of the wave. In microwaves, these polarity changes happen millions of times a second. Food molecules--especially the molecules of water--have a positive and negative end in the same way a magnet has a north and a south polarity.

As the microwaves generated from the magnetron bombard the food, they cause the polar molecules to rotate at the same frequency, millions of times a second. All this agitation creates molecular friction, which heats up the food. The friction also causes substantial damage to the surrounding molecules, often tearing them apart or forcefully deforming them. The scientific name for this deformation is structural isomerism. By comparison, microwaves from the sun are based on principles of pulsed direct current (DC) that don't create frictional heat; microwave ovens use alternating current (AC) creating frictional heat. A microwave oven produces a spiked wavelength of energy with all the power going into only one narrow frequency of the energy spectrum. In addition to violent frictional heat effects (called thermic effects), there are also athermic effects, which have hardly ever been taken into account. These athermic effects also deform the structures of molecules and have qualitative consequences. For example, the weakening of cell membranes by microwaves is used in the field of gene-altering technology. Because of the force involved, the cells are actually broken, thereby neutralizing the electrical potentials--the very life of the cells--between the outer and inner sides of cell membranes. Impaired cells become easy prey for microorganisms. Natural repair mechanisms are suppressed, and cells are forced to adapt to a state of energy emergency--they switch from aerobic to anaerobic respiration. Instead of water and carbon dioxide, hydrogen peroxide and carbon monoxide are produced. Any reversal of healthy cell processes may occur because of a number of reasons, and our cells then revert from a robust oxidation to an unhealthy fermentation. The same violent friction and athermic deformations, that can occur in our bodies when we are subjected to radar or microwaves, happens to the molecules in the food cooked in a microwave oven.

Microwave Sickness

The Russians did research on thousands of workers who had been exposed to microwaves during the development of radar in the 1950's. Their research showed a breakdown of the human life-energy field, so serious that the Russians set strict limits of 10 microwatts exposure for workers and one microwatt for civilians. The first signs of microwave sickness are low blood pressure and slow pulse. The later and most common manifestations are chronic excitation of the sympathetic nervous system (stress syndrome) and high blood pressure. This phase also often includes headache, dizziness, eye pain, sleeplessness, irritability, anxiety, stomach pain, nervous tension, inability to concentrate, hair loss, plus an increased incidence of appendicitis, cataracts, reproductive problems, and cancer. The chronic symptoms are eventually succeeded by crisis of adrenal exhaustion and ischemic heart disease. Changes are observed in the blood chemistries and the rates of certain diseases among consumers of microwaved foods. Lymphatic disorders were observed, leading to decreased ability to prevent certain types of cancers.

An increased rate of cancer cell formation was observed in the blood. Increased rates of stomach and intestinal cancers were observed. Higher rates of digestive disorders and gradual breakdown of the systems of elimination were observed. There is degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism and of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic processes into the blood serum from the digestive process. There is a degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems, along with a loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system (controls the function of consciousness). There is long-term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that are located within a 500-meter radius of operational equipment. There is long-lasting residual effects of magnetic "deposits" located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system.

There is destabilization and interruption in the production and maintence of hormones in males and females by continually eating microwaved foods. Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven, or using cell phones, causes permanent brain damage by shorting out electrical impulses in the brain (depolarizing or demagnetizing the brain tissue). There is markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, with a resultant negative psychological effects, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes. Microwaves cause long-term depolarization of tissue neuroelectric circuits with irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of various components of the nervous system, in individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus, in transmission stations, and PCS cell phones. The body cannot metabolize unknown byproducts created in microwaved food.

Electric Power Systems

Our electric-power systems operate at fifty or sixty cycles per second, just above the highest naturally occurring frequency of 30 Hertz (Hz.)the frequency in cycles per second. Our microwave beams operate at billions of times per second and are getting ever closer to the trillion-cycle frequencies of visible light. We have filled the previously empty electromagnetic spectrum between these two extremes with man-made radiation that never existed on Earth, and we did it in less than 80 years. Because our society runs on electromagnetic (EM) energy, there really is no place to hide. We are living in a "radio-frequency soup." Microwave and low-frequency radiation is all around us--emitted by television and radio towers, satellites, high-voltage electric lines, personal computers, police radios, paging systems, microwave ovens and electronic games, CB radios, alarm systems, telecommunications systems, garage door controls, signal generators, etc. Even in the remotest mountain valleys, you're exposed to some level of the ubiquitous power frequencies of 50 or 60 Hz., short-wave radio waves reflected back from the ionosphere, as well as microwaves being beamed from satellites. It is not ionizing--it doesn't displace electrons and start biochemical reactions in our cells like ionizing radiation--but it does affect human health.

There have been "clusters" of miscarriages among female computer operators. Most people know that the television or computer screen gives off a small amount of ionizing radiation as X-rays, but few are aware of the amount and distribution of the electromagnetic radiation from the entire unit. Actually, the electromagnetic fields are generated within the circuitry of the entire device. The TV set is what is called a broadband radiating source, meaning that it gives off a variety of frequencies, from the 60-Hz power frequency to radio frequencies in the MHz (mega hertz) range. The radiation is given off in all directions from the TV set and computer screen. The fly-back circuit operates in the VLF (very low frequency) range, generally around 17 kHz, and this frequency is a major part of the total frequencies given off. When you sit in front of the set, you are being irradiated with a wide range of frequencies, with the strongest components probably being the 60-Hz power frequency and the 17-kHz fly-back frequency. In general, the larger the size of the screen, the stronger the fields, and the further out from the unit they will extend.

Electromagnetic radiation goes through wood and other usual building materials. If the TV set or computer is placed with its back against an inside wall, radiation will be present in the adjoining room just as if there were no wall present. Consequently, an infant's or child's bed should not be placed against a wall opposite a television set, or computer, regardless of the device's field strength. If you live in an apartment or condominium, you probably don't know what's on the opposite side of the walls or above or below you. Because the strength of the field drops off with the square of the distance, the closer one's head to the machine, the stronger the field. A TV viewer usually sits back at least 6-8 feet from the screen. But with computers, the keyboards are attached to the rest of the device and the operator's head is only about fifteen to eighteen inches from the screen. There is a trend of introducing school children to computers at earlier and earlier grade levels. Many schools are using computers and people who have upgraded their own machines and given their older, unshielded, high-radiation models to a local school donated many to them. Schoolchildren are still growing and have a constant level of cell multiplication within their bodies, which leaves them even more susceptible to the harmful effects of electromagnetic field bombardment.

Fluorescent Lights

The incandescent lamp simply causes a resistive filament to glow when current at 120 volts and very small amperage is forced through it. The fluorescent lamp has no filament. Instead, a coating of chemical on the interior of the tube is excited to glow when a high-voltage discharge is produced within the tube. This requires that the 120 volts of house current be raised to several thousand volts by means of a transformer. The fluorescent light produces much different magnetic fields compared with the incandescent bulb. Two inches from a 60-watt incandescent bulb, the 60-Hz field is 0.3 milligauss; and at one foot, the field is lost in the ambient field. A 10-watt fluorescent tube produces a magnetic field at least twenty times greater than a 60-watt incandescent bulb. The ceiling fluorescent fixtures, with several 20-watt tubes, produce a field greater than 1 milligauss near the heads of the office workers below. Considering the average time of exposure, the fields produced by fluorescent lights can reach dangerous levels.

Electric Clocks

An electric motorized clock, plugged into a wall socket, produces an amazingly high magnetic field because of the small electric motor that runs it. A small bedside alarm clock of this type will produce a field of as much as 5 to 10 milligauss two feet away. If the bedside table is placed close to the sleeper's head, or if a clock or radio is placed on the headboard shelf near the head, it is within this range. The dose rate is considerable for the average eight hours per night (one-third of your life).

Razors & Hairdryers

The electric razor and hair dryer produce an extremely high-strength magnetic field (200 to 400 milligauss for the razor and 50 milligauss at six inches for the hair dryer) if it is a line-operated device--that is, if it is plugged into a wall socket rather than battery operated. These devices are used for just a few minutes once a day, so the total exposure, or dose, to the user is minimal.

Electric Blankets, Heating Pads & Water Beds

Electric-blanket and heating pad field strengths are somewhat lower (50-100 milligauss) but are still within the danger zone. The electric blanket or heating pad is applied as close to the body surface as the electric razor. Even the water bed heater, being farther away from the body, because it is used for several hours at a time, the total administered dose is much higher. The incidence of miscarriage is much higher among pregnant women who use electric blankets or heating pads than among those who do not.

Electric Heaters

A four-foot-long baseboard heater produces 23 milligauss at a distance of six inches; at one foot, the field is 8 milligauss; at two feet, it is about 3 milligauss; and it falls to 1 milligauss at three feet. The small portable electric heaters that plug into the wall socket produce about the same field intensities, but they are even more dangerous because they may be placed much closer to the body. In recent years, electric heat cables have been installed in ceilings as a more efficient means of heating an entire room. This produces an average field of about 10 milligauss throughout the entire room. Any device that electrically produces heat will have a major field strength at short distances from the device. The electric stove produces 50 milligauss at eighteen inches above a twelve-inch burner.

Microwave Ovens

Today, more than 90% of American homes have a microwave oven, used for meal preparation. The Nazis originally developed microwave radiomissor cooking ovens for use in their mobile support operations, to be used for the invasion of Russia. Microwaves are very short waves of electromagnetic energy that travel at the speed of light. Microwave ovens contain a magnetron, a tube in which electrons are affected by magnetic and electric fields in such a way as to produce micro-wavelength radiation at about 2450 Megahertz (MHz) or 2.45 Gigahertz (GHz). This microwave radiation interacts with the molecules in food. All wave energy changes polarity from positive to negative with each cycle of the wave. In microwaves, these polarity changes happen millions of times every second. Food molecules--especially the molecules of water--have a positive and negative end in the same way a magnet has a north and a south polarity. As the microwaves generated from the magnetron bombard the food, they cause the polar molecules to rotate at the same frequency, millions of times a second. All this agitation creates molecular friction, which heats up the food. The friction also causes substantial damage to the surrounding molecules, often tearing them apart or forcefully deforming them. The scientific name for this deformation is structural isomerism. By comparison, microwaves from the sun are based on principles of pulsed direct current (DC) that don't create frictional heat; microwave ovens use alternating current (AC) creating frictional heat. A microwave oven produces a spiked wavelength of energy with all the power going into only one narrow frequency of the energy spectrum.

The toxic effects of microwave cooking are another in a long list of unnatural additives in our daily diets. Artificially produced microwaves are based on the principle of alternating current. Atoms, molecules and cells hit by this hard electromagnetic radiation are forced to reverse polarity 1 to 100 billion times a second. Production of unnatural molecules is inevitable. Naturally occurring amino acids undergo isomeric changes (changes in shape morphing), as well as transformation into toxic forms, under the impact of microwaves produced in ovens. There are no atoms, molecules or cells of any organic system able to withstand such a violent, destructive power for any extended period of time, not even in the low energy range of milliwatts. Current regulations allow leakage of 1 milliwatt per centimeter squared. Damage to the gasket material around the door will markedly increase the level of microwave radiation that leaks from the device when it is in use. Of all the natural substances, which are polar, the oxygen of water molecules reacts most sensitively. This is contrary to the conventional heating of food, in which heat transfers convectionally from without to within. Cooking by microwaves begins within the cells and molecules where water is present and where the energy is transformed into frictional heat.

Effects on Cells

In addition to violent frictional heat effects (called thermic effects), there are also athermic effects, which have hardly ever been taken into account. These athermic effects also deform the structures of molecules and have qualitative consequences. For example, the weakening of cell membranes by microwaves is used in the field of gene-altering technology. Because of the force involved, the cells are actually broken, thereby neutralizing the electrical potentials--the very life of the cells--between the outer and inner sides of the cell membranes. Impaired cells become easy prey for microorganisms. Natural repair mechanisms are suppressed, and cells are forced to adapt to a state of energy emergency--they switch from aerobic to anaerobic respiration. Instead of water and carbon dioxide, hydrogen peroxide and carbon monoxide are produced. Any reversal of healthy cell processes may occur because of a number of reasons, and our cells then revert from a robust oxidation to an unhealthy fermentation. The same violent friction and athermic deformations, that can occur in our bodies when we are subjected to radar or microwaves, happens to the molecules in the food cooked in a microwave oven.

A microwave oven decays and changes the molecular structure of the food by the process of radiation. We've all been told that microwaving food is not the same as irradiating it. The two processes are supposed to use completely different waves of energy and at different intensities. In fact, when food is microwaved, the oven exerts a power input of about 1,000 watts or more. This radiation results in destruction and deformation of molecules of food, and in the formation of new compounds (called radiolytic compounds) unknown to man and nature. Microwave cooking changes the nutrients so that significant unhealthy changes take place in the blood of the participants who consume microwaved food--changes that cause deterioration in the human systems.

Cell Phones

The number of people using cellular telephones has risen dramatically during the past decade, and is expected to continue increasing. According to the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA), there are currently (2002) over 110 million wireless telephone users in the United States. This number is increasing at a rate of about 46,000 new subscribers per day. Experts estimate that by 2005 there will be over 1.26 billion wireless telephone users worldwide. A study by scientists in Finland has found that mobile phone radiation can cause changes in human cells that might affect the brain. The study at Finland's Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority found that exposure to radiation from mobile phones can cause increased activity in hundreds of proteins in human cells grown in a laboratory. Nonetheless the study, the initial findings of which were published June 2002, in the scientific journal Differentiation, raises new questions about whether mobile phone radiation can weaken the brain's protective shield against harmful substances. The study focused on changes in cells that line blood vessels and on whether such changes could weaken the functioning of the blood-brain barrier, which prevents potentially harmful substances from entering the brain from the bloodstream.

They also found that one hour of exposure to mobile phone radiation caused cultured human cells to shrink. The researchers believe this is triggered by a response that normally only happens when a cell is damaged. In a person, such changes could disable safety mechanisms that prevent harmful substances from entering the brain from the bloodstream. Radiation-induced changes in the cells could also interfere with the normal death process of apoptosis. If cells that are "marked" to die do not, tumors can form. The study found that a protein called hsp27 linked to the functioning of the blood-brain barrier showed increased activity due to irradiation and pointed to a possibility that such activity could make the shield more permeable, he said. Increased protein activity might cause cells to shrink--not the blood vessels but the cells themselves--and then tiny gaps could appear between those cells through which some molecules could pass.

This number is increasing at a rate of about 46,000 new subscribers per day. Experts estimate that by 2005 there will be over 1.26 billion wireless telephone users worldwide. The concern about an increased risk of cancer with cellular telephone use is related to the radiation that the device produces. Like televisions, alarm systems, computers, and all other electrical devices, cellular telephones emit electromagnetic radiation. In the United States, cellular telephones operate in a frequency ranging from about 800 to 2400 megahertz (MHz). In that range, the radiation produced is in the form of non-ionizing radiofrequency (RF) radiation. AM/FM radios, VHF/UHF televisions, and cordless telephones operate at lower radio frequencies than cellular phones; microwave ovens, radar, and satellite-stations operate at slightly higher radio frequencies. RF radiation is different from ionizing radiation, which can present a health risk at certain doses. Ionizing radiation is produced by devices such as x-ray machines and television and computer monitors that use cathode ray tubes. Because so many people use cellular telephones, it is important to learn whether RF radiation affects human health, and to provide reassurance if it does not.

A cellular telephone user's level of exposure to RF radiation depends on several factors. These factors include the: amount of cellular telephone traffic, quality of the transmission, how far the antenna is extended, and size of the handset. A cellular telephone's main source of RF energy is its antenna. Therefore, the closer the antenna is to the head, the greater a person's expected exposure to RF radiation. The amount of RF radiation absorbed decreases rapidly with increasing distance between the antenna and the user. The antenna of hand-held cellular telephones is in the handset, which is typically held against the side of the head while the phone is in use. The antenna of a car cellular telephone is mounted on the outside of the car, some distance from the user. Transportable cellular telephones or "bag phones" have an antenna in a portable unit separate from the handset. Most of the studies conducted on cellular telephone use and cancer risk have focused on hand-held models, since they deliver the most RF radiation to the user. RF radiation can be harmful at high levels because it produces heat. The emitted microwaves heat the metals in the head, such as amalgam fillings braces, crowns bridges, etc. This increases the galvanic electricity generated as well as the emission of mercury vapor that's inhaled from amalgam fillings. Some people have speculated that the heat produced by RF radiation from hand-held cellular telephones may be associated with brain tumors, because the antenna is held close to the user's head.

Cell phones are becoming increasingly popular, yet most of us are unaware of the damage they are doing to our brains by exposing us to this radiation. Today, there is more and more compelling evidence showing low intensity, pulsed radiation can exert subtle influences that have serious health problems. Your body is an electrochemical instrument of exquisite sensitivity. Its orderly functioning and control are determined by oscillatory electrical processes of various kinds, each characterized by a specific frequency, some of which happen to be close to those used in GSM. Thus, some of your biological electrical activities can be interfered with via oscillatory aspects of the incoming radiation, in much the same way as can the reception on a radio. Your biological electrical activities that are vulnerable to interference from GSM radiation include highly organized electrical activities at a cellular level, whose frequency happens to lie in the microwave region, can interfere with processes as fundamental as cell division. This radiation also seems to affect a variety of brain functions including the neuroendocrine system. Additionally, cell phones have been associated with a 200-300% increase neuroepithelial tumours that occur on the same side of the brain that the cell phone was being used on. People should limit their exposures to these potential dangerous devices that cause irreversible brain damage and cancer. We only have to look less than a hundred years back to learn from similar mistakes our forefathers made in this area. Early in the 20th century radon and radium-enriched spa waters were "recommended" for a wide range of aches and minor ailments. Today, no reputable scientist would disagree with the dangers that ionizing radiation has to our health.

Unfortunately it is nearly technically impossible to design a study to prove that a device or procedure is safe. That is one of the reasons that cell phones health hazards have not received more attention than they have. Cell phones have been one of the fastest growing industries in modern history. 300 million Americans now use cell phones, and this technology is predicted to have over 1.3 billion worldwide users by the year 2005. Every day some 300 million cell phone users are "reaching out and touching someone" they love with the new 1.9 gigahertz (nineteen-hundred-million) broadcasting frequency. Yourself, and anyone else within range of the microwaves emitted by your phone. The uses of electronic communications for average people began with the introduction of personal paging systems in the 1970's--expanding into remote telephones and cell phones by the end of the century. Most people today have either portable phones in the home, cell phones for away-from-home use or both. As entire nations reach for pocket communicators, the explosively emergent $40 billion a year mobile phone industry is poised to deliver a "Wireless Revolution" that over the next five years is expected to double the one-billion people connected by telephone lines over the past century.

Pittsburgh Cancer Center Warns of Cell Phone Risks

July 23, 2008

PITTSBURGH - The head of a prominent cancer research institute issued an unprecedented warning to his faculty and staff Wednesday: Limit cell phone use because of the possible risk of cancer. The warning from Dr. Ronald B. Herberman, director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, is contrary to numerous studies that don't find a link between cancer and cell phone use, and a public lack of worry by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Herberman is basing his alarm on early unpublished data. He says it takes too long to get answers from science and he believes people should take action now — especially when it comes to children. "Really at the heart of my concern is that we shouldn't wait for a definitive study to come out, but err on the side of being safe rather than sorry later," Herberman said.

No other major academic cancer research institutions have sounded such an alarm about cell phone use. But Herberman's advice is sure to raise concern among many cell phone users and especially parents. In the memo he sent to about 3,000 faculty and staff Wednesday, he says children should use cell phones only for emergencies because their brains are still developing.

Adults should keep the phone away from the head and use the speakerphone or a wireless headset, he says. He even warns against using cell phones in public places like a bus because it exposes others to the phone's electromagnetic fields.

The issue that concerns some scientists — though nowhere near a consensus — is electromagnetic radiation, especially its possible effects on children. It is not a major topic in conferences of brain specialists.

A 2008 University of Utah analysis looked at nine studies — including some Herberman cites — with thousands of brain tumor patients and concludes "we found no overall increased risk of brain tumors among cellular phone users. The potential elevated risk of brain tumors after long-term cellular phone use awaits confirmation by future studies."

Studies last year in France and Norway concluded the same thing.

"If there is a risk from these products — and at this point we do not know that there is — it is probably very small," the Food and Drug Administration says on an agency Web site.

Still, Herberman cites a "growing body of literature linking long-term cell phone use to possible adverse health effects including cancer."

"Although the evidence is still controversial, I am convinced that there are sufficient data to warrant issuing an advisory to share some precautionary advice on cell phone use," he wrote in his memo.

A driving force behind the memo was Devra Lee Davis, the director of the university's center for environmental oncology. "The question is do you want to play Russian roulette with your brain," she said in an interview from her cell phone while using the hands-free speaker phone as recommended. "I don't know that cell phones are dangerous. But I don't know that they are safe."

Of concern are the still unknown effects of more than a decade of cell phone use, with some studies raising alarms, said Davis, a former health adviser in the Clinton Administration. She said 20 different groups have endorsed the advice the Pittsburgh cancer institute gave, and authorities in England, France and India have cautioned children's use of cell phones.

Herberman and Davis point to a massive ongoing research project known as Interphone, involving scientists in 13 nations, mostly in Europe. Results already published in peer-reviewed journals from this project aren't so alarming, but Herberman is citing work not yet published.

The published research focuses on more than 5,000 cases of brain tumors. The National Research Council in the U.S., which isn't participating in the Interphone project, reported in January that the brain tumor research had "selection bias." That means it relied on people with cancer to remember how often they used cell phones. It is not considered the most accurate research approach.
