Biological Impacts of EMFs
Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can have a variety of biological impacts. Impacts like these and others may help explain the connections between dirty electricity and a range of diseases and other ailments. EMFs (of various frequencies):
- Interfere with normal “electrical” communication between cells (This can disrupt cellular function in every part of the body and interfere with the body’s natural processes, such as sleep, hormone production, neurological function, immune response, and the ability to heal.)
- Disrupt Melatonin production (Melatonin is a neuro-hormone that is vital for healthy sleep. It is also a potent, natural antioxidant that protects cells from genetic damage that can lead to cancer as well as neurological, cardiac, and reproductive damage.)
- Linked to chronic inflammation in the body (Inflammation has been linked with cellular/tissue/organ damage, cancer, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, neurological diseases, and Alzheimer’s.
- Trigger the immune system to release inflammatory substances such as histamines and cytokines as a protective mechanism (These markers of inflammation have been shown to highly correlate with asthma and other allergic reactions.)
- Overstimulate the immune system, then suppress it and decrease T-lymphocyte production. (T-lymphocytes orchestrate the immune system’s response to infected or malignant cells.)
- Raise cortisol (stress hormone) in the body (This can lead to sleep disorders, depressed immunity, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, premature aging, neurological problems, and more.)
- Cause cell membranes to be locked in an inactive state (oxidative stress) that prevents toxins, or free radicals, from leaving cells. (There is evidence that this inactive state can damage DNA and prevent the body from repairing it, which is a first step to cancer.)
- Cause calcium ion efflux. (Calcium ion alteration of cells by electromagnetic radiation is linked to neurological degeneration, to cancer, to dangerous heart arhythmias, and many other health effects.)
- Can elevate blood sugar levels and blood viscosity, which can be associated with symptoms such as headaches, chest pain, higher blood pressure, blurred vision, and fatigue among others.
