We are electromagnetic beings; we rely on chemical messengers to relay information through tiny electrical currents to nerves and cells. Biochemical reactions travel along with charged particles to influence everything from brainwave activity to digestion.
Even our heartbeat is kept in rhythm through electrical activity. Our natural electromagnetic state is within the same range as the earth’s resonance: healthy negative ions.
So, when we experience something which is outside of this resonance, it potentially starts to put a stress on the body’s ability to function optimally, keep the immune system working adequately, repair cells, balance internal flora, keep major organs functioning properly, and regulate hormonal messaging and emotional states.
Our DNA produces the stress protein known as HSP70 in response to EMF. Our body perceives this as a threat and reacts in the same way as any fight or flight stress response where we can see:
• Diminished blood flow and oxygen away from the extremities
• Increased blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugars
• Digestion and immune response are put on hold.
It is a commonly known fact that any stress on the body can contribute to ill health.
Beyond this, it’s been discovered the positive EMFs also interfere with the metabolism of cells that lead to deficiencies in calcium (associated with anxiety and osteoporosis), potassium (diabetes and Alzheimer’s) and lithium (schizophrenia and depression).
Even more concerning is the discovery that EMF at all frequencies, including extremely low (ELF) and radio frequency (RF) cause damage to DNA. So What is EMF and why does it damage DNA?
DNA molecules are shown to break apart when they come into contact with EMF because the electrical conductivity inside the DNA molecule responds by becoming charged and then finally splitting apart. The DNA can be seen as acting as a fractal antenna – an antenna that can pick up the range of frequencies across the EMF spectrum.
It was commonly thought that non-ionising radiation (that with not enough power or heat effect to separate electrons from atoms) cannot create a biological effect. This has now been proven to be inaccurate. Dr Martin Blank of Columbia University explains more about DNA’s response to electromagnetic fields in this video link.
