Many companies make serious amounts of money from products where EMF is a byproduct, and stand by the belief that electromagnetic radiation is capable only of heating. They insist that if the heat is properly removed, which in many electronic devices it is, radiation can have no negative effects on the body. In his research experiments, Dr. Cherry attempts to debunk these claims, and prove that EMF has far deeper reaching implications than just heating damage.
Dr. Cherry prefaces his experiment by explaining how the human body takes care of itself. He states,
"Every night when we go to sleep our melatonin levels rise and melatonin goes
through our blood and cleans our cells up. For example, it scavenges out
free radicals which are highly damaging chemicals. If the free radicals persist
for very long they damage DNA and cause damaged cells and are shown to be
In his experiments, he found that ELF electromagnetic radiation exposure consistently and repeatably reduced the amount of melatonin in the blood. This lack of melatonin then, in turn, reduced the amount of repair to human cells, allowing them to become damaged and deteriorate. It is in this damage and deterioration that cells fail to perform the duties the body's DNA naturally selects them to do. The body's natural repair system was shut down by the EMF exposure.
The concerning part is that the amount of radiation these cells were subjected to ranged from 2 to 12 milligauss. A laptop computer can emit up to 175 milligauss when running just a common virus scan. EMF is an invisible, odorless, and tasteless, which allows it to be swept under the rug and ignored. The long term effects are yet to be seen in humans, and more and more people are not waiting around to see what happens.
