Frequencies & the Human Antenna

There exists no definite border between the electromagnetic fields that are maintained by the body’s metabolism and those that exist in the environment. 

| Dr. Neil Cherry | Low frequency electric and magnetic fields induce weak electric currents in humans and animals. The dotted lines in the image below show the directions of the induced currents, parallel to the electric field and perpendicular to the magnetic field.  Biology has preceded electronic physics because brains and cells use oscillating ion currents for the control of release of neurotransmitters and in the cell to cell communication systems,(EEG). They use frequency encoders and decoders and phase-locked loop circuits to tune into external signals of a slightly different frequency.

Biological Systems detect and respond to external ULF/ELF signals using their built-in receiving and decoding systems (cell-to-cell communication). Early claims that living cells could not detect fields less than the membrane potential, are demonstrably wrong. Not only does the brain’s EEG signals operate using ELF oscillating signals whose field strength is a million times lower, but fish, birds, primates along with humans detect and respond to ELF oscillating signals over a million times smaller than the EEG signal.

How fields interact with human bodies:
The graphic shows how the electric field is concentrated into human bodies because of the conductive material, mainly water, that allows the field to carry a current to earth, parallel to the electric field lines.

On the other hand, magnetic fields induce circular currents perpendicular to the magnetic field lines. The fields are oscillating at 50/60 Hz so that the induced currents within our bodies are also oscillating at these frequencies.

“I have no doubt in my mind, at the present time that the greatest polluting element in the Earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields.  I consider that to be far greater on a global scale than warming.”  Robert O. Becker M.D. – “Cross Currents and The Body Electric.”

There was an episode of Star Trek in which the crew of the Enterprise was deprived of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep because of some freaky space glitch. As a consequence of being dream deprived, they began to hallucinate when they were awake. Scientists like John Lilly and Jean Houston have proven this does indeed occur.

Since melatonin and serotonin are the primary circadian endocrine hormones, all vital organs, including the brain, hypothalamus, central nervous system, lymph system, immune system, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, uterus, testes and fetus, have melatonin and serotonin receptors. Hence, substances that alter the melatonin/serotonin balance can affect organs throughout the brain and body. Melatonin production is very low at birth, peaks in early childhood and declines from puberty onwards. Electrification of homes produce more light-at-night and higher ELF oscillating electromagnetic fields, both of which are
proven to reduce melatonin. Normal household light-at-night delays the onset of sleep. People still sleep in the dark but in electromagnetic fields that also reduce melatonin during sleep.

Because the melatonin/serotonin balance is the primary circadian regulator, the daily awake/sleep, metabolic, respiratory, cardiac and activity cycle is modulated though melatonin and serotonin receptors in all our vital organs, especially the brain, hypothalamus, central nervous system, lungs, heart, reproductive organs and fetus. The mother’s melatonin passes through the placenta to the fetus in her womb regulating the daily cycle of the fetus and protecting the fetus from oxidative free radical damage. Reducing mother’s nocturnal melatonin will increase the risk of fetal genetic and immune system damage. The biophysical mechanism for detecting and responding to external ELF signals, resulting in reduced melatonin, occurs through resonant absorption of the ELF signals in the brain.  To reiterate, calcium ions and neurotransmitters oscillate at the EEG frequencies. Same frequencies as the brain, which can cause a frequency following response.

ELF signals induce alterations in the calcium ion signals that in turn send signals to the pineal that alters the melatonin/serotonin balance. This is transferred to the body organs through the CNS (central nervous system) and hormone/enzyme/ion cellular signaling system. In addition, the ELF signal systems in cells, also involve calcium ions, can be directly interfered with by external ELF signals of extremely low intensity through non-equilibrium resonant absorption processes at the cell membrane.
This is a resonant phenomenon that only operates in the normal mammal temperature range. It is dependent on the earth’s geomagnetic field strength and orientation and therefore varies from place to place and time to time.

Biophysical Summary:
There are well established and observationally confirmed mechanisms for external ELF signals to be resonantly absorbed in human tissue, especially the brain and heart, and cause reduced melatonin.  Melatonin is the most potent naturally produced antioxidant that helps to protect cells from genetic damage that leads to cancer, neurological, cardiac and reproductive damage, illness and death.

Melatonin levels also affect the health of the immune system that also has a vital role in trying to maintain health. Since a damaged cell should be eliminated by programmed cell death, apoptosis, or by natural killer cells in the immune system, altered calcium ions negatively affect both of these processes.

There is considerable evidence relating EMF exposure to reduces immune system competence. Exposure to power frequency fields produced changes in the immune system that were both real and inconsistent. This is because they are complex and non-linear producing a deterministic chaos effect.

Prolonged sleep deprivation (+48 hours) results in severe mental disturbance, attention deficit, withdrawing, visual complaints, hallucinations and time distortion. After 5 days you may even end up in a mental institution. Robert Whitaker, author of Mad in America interviewed recovered schizophrenics and he said that absolutely every single case admits to a period of sleeplessness prior to a psychic break.


Data from the 19th century on hallucinations and magnetic disturbances were found to exhibit a direct and statistically significant correlation. The aa magnetic index over the period 1868-89 and concurrent visual hallucinatory activity were found to co-vary. Magnetic influences on the pineal hormone, melatonin, are suggested as a source of variation.

  1. My late partner died from Anaplastic Astrocytoma. She was a major social butterfly (more like Eagle). The phone, wireless and landline, was constantly next to her left ear. She would leave home for a while and the phone would stop ringing but within 15 minutes of returning it would start. She was concerned about electromagnetic radiation and turned our WiFi off at night and tried to use Skype and face time as much as possible. But, while on the road that was not an option. Strangely the tumor appeared on the left side and the initial manifestation was a loss of speech. She willed her body to the Univ. of Washington for research but no one asked about her lifestyles.

  2. Jack, thank you for sharing about your late partner. That was wise of her to turn off the WiFi at night. A lot of people don’t read the fine print of the pamphlet that comes with the phone, which states that the cell phone should not make direct contact with your head — that would also include the ear.

    The American Cancer Society states that all the studies that have been done so far have had limitations.

    “In summary, most studies of people published so far have not found a link between cell phone use and the development of tumors. However, these studies have had some important limitations that make them unlikely to end the controversy about whether cell phone use affects cancer risk.
    Finally, the measurement of cell phone use in most studies has been crude. Most have been case-control studies, which have relied on people’s memories about their past cell phone use.
    With these limitations in mind, it is important that the possible risk of cell phone exposure continue to be researched using strong study methods, especially with regard to use by children and longer-term use.”

    They also recommend limiting cellphone use. A study published in Clinical Neurophysiology suggests it doesn’t take years or even months of exposure for cell phone radiation to negatively alter our brains—it only takes minutes.

    Excerpts from Abstract

    The motivation of this study is to evaluate the possible alteration of regional resting state brain activity induced by the acute radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) exposure (30min) of Long Term Evolution (LTE) signal.

    We found the decreased ALFF value around in left superior temporal gyrus, left middle temporal gyrus, right superior temporal gyrus, right medial frontal gyrus and right paracentral lobule after the real exposure. And the decreased fALFF value was also detected in right medial frontal gyrus and right paracentral lobule.

    The study provided the evidences that 30min LTE RF-EMF exposure modulated the spontaneous low frequency fluctuations in some brain regions.

    Nearly all the studies are focused on cell phones and heating (thermal), but not what pulsed microwave radiation (non-thermal) does on the biology, including altering hormones. Many European countries have significantly limited WiFi in schools. The Council of Europe warns about installing routers in schools and recommends a 100 µW/m² precautionary level in classrooms.

    ​Around the world (except the U.S.) countries are taking strong action to reduce wireless radiation on children. Even Israel, Russia and China have set RF exposure limits 100 to 10,000 times less than the USA. They recognize that there can be non-thermal biological effects from wireless radiation.

    Current radiation guidelines are over 20 years old and don’t take into consideration biological effects or the pulsed-nature of the signal, where there is a great difference between average and peak values . When Wi-Fi devices produce pulsed microwave radiation, its peak values will exceed several precautionary recommendation levels of what is considered safe for exposure.

    Thanks again for taking the time to comment.
