Unsuspected prolonged exposure to abnormal environmental (very high frequency) electro-magnetic fields (EMF), electric fields (EF) or magnetic fields (MF) at 60 Hz or 16K Hz in the bedroom or workplace may contribute to the development of various intractable medical problems. Most of
the clinical symptoms appear when the individuals are exposed to EMF for many hours a day for at least several months to 1-year for relatively benign diseases or symptoms (such as intractable pain or medical problems), or several to over 10 years for more serious diseases (such as cancers
of the digestive system or other organs), all of which seem to appear with the additional co-existence of micro-circulatory disturbances with Thromboxane B2 (TXB2), bacterial or viral infections and decrease or absence of acetylcholine, and lead, mercury, or aluminum deposits, with or without
asbestos. These abnormal environmental EMFs or EFs can be detected by the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test, which has good correlation with standard laboratory measurement, especially with EF measurement, and the distribution of EMF often includes a linear band-like appearance on the abnormal part of
the patient’s body, as well as on the patient’s corresponding area of the bed, or at the workplace. These EMFs can be eliminated either by a metal sheet, acting as a reflector, which redirects the harmful EMF or eliminates it completely by grounding the metal sheet at high frequency
range, while extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields at the near field are more difficult to eliminate. Several examples of medical problems that appear to be associated with repeated and prolonged exposure to abnormal environmental EMF, EF or MF are summarized in this article. EF or
MF-induced abnormalities were artificially and reversibly created in humans by exposing the extremities or head to a l0 Volt/Meter (V/M) EF at 60 Hz about 33 (evening) to 50 cm (daytime or after midnight) from a pair of rubber insulated wires connected to an AC source, but where no current
is passed, so that no extra MF exists. After exposing normal parts of the extremities and head to a 10 V/M EF for 5 minutes, abnormal increase of TXB2 and disappearance or significant reduction of acetylcholine was observed for 5 minutes, and slightly longer abnormal time duration was observed
in those who have aluminum, lead, or mercury deposits. This indicates that the upper limit of relatively safe EF should be around 10V/M at 60 Hz rather than 25V/M at ELF by Swedish Government recommendation, which is now widely accepted. High frequency EMF-induced abnormalities were artificially
and reversibly created in humans by exposing the extremities or head to the relatively strong abnormal EMF for a short time using a flat aluminum sheet. Similar increase in TXB2 and marked decrease in acetylcholine was observed. The abnormality usually disappeared gradually, equal to the time
duration of exposure to the EMF in the absence of micro-circulatory disturbances, bacterial or viral infections, or heavy metal deposits. However, if the subject has an abnormally high concentration of lead or mercury in the exposed body tissue, the EMF-induced abnormality (the post EMF-exposure
abnormality time duration), appears to last longer than the exposure time. The author considers that multiple metal ions or atoms in tissues due to heavy metal deposits act as microscopic antennae which effectively absorb the environmental EMF and re-emit the field in surrounding cells and
dipolar molecules. S-minute exposure to a small 600 Gauss permanent magnetic disk produced a 1.5 minute post-exposure abnormality period. A telephone credit card with magnetic strip also produced a post-exposure abnormality period of 2.5 minutes, with increase of TXB2 and decrease or disappearance
of acetylcholine in normal subjects. Our previous studies indicate that, in addition to the disappearance of acetylcholine, there is an increase in Integrin α5β1in cell membranes and Oncogen C-fos Ab-2 & mercury in the nucleus of cancer cells. Therefore, in the presence of mercury
deposits in the body from various sources, if the EF, MF, or EMF can induce circulatory disturbance and decrease or disappearance of acetylcholine in the exposed parts of the body, with the co-existence of other cancer promoting factors, repeated prolonged exposure to the EF, MF, or EMF can
be considered as a contributing factor to the genesis of cancer, as well as Alzheimer’s disease in individuals with aluminum deposits in the brain, or stroke in the coexistence of Herpes simplex type 1 virus infection and lead in the brain.
