EMF effects with various waveforms (square, pulsed, sine) and steady DC

To all:

Here is the latest in effects of EMF on human cells from Cindy Sage, who
is a very worthwhile contact in the area of EMFpollution detection,
protection and mitigation.

Also, would advise review of Mae-Wan Ho's book "The Rainbow and the
Worm: The Physics of Organisms", chapters 9 and 10 (description of
coherence, actions of low level EMFs and static magnets, cell
communication, biophotons and dynamic order). and chapter 12 (Chrystal
Consciousness) on the primary living system component of Liquid Crystals
(these chapters contain the least amount of complex formulae) This book
has more physics and formulae than I can handle, however, it is worth a
read to skip those and plow on thru to her conclusions, because, based
on my experience, she is on the right path in her investigations of EMF
bioeffects and associated liquid crystal phenomena. Her hypotheses and
backup examples of living systems, as primarily liquid crystal
structures, provide some very possible answers to the low level quantum
sensitivity phenomena routinely encountered (but not understood) in

Please note the attached paper on liquid crystals, which I gave at the
Annual Review of Research on Biological Effects of Electric & Magnetic
Fields, sponsored by DOE/EPRI/EPA, San Antonio, TX, November 17-21,

Hi Jim,

Nice website. I'll be referring people to you.. Seen this on the NASA
patent? Transients, fast rise-time issues.... major implications for EMF
policy, if true.

NASA (JSC) Collaborations

Robert G. Dennis, Ph.D.

In a collaboration with Tom Goodwin at NASA Johnson Space Center, we
have developed 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional bioreactor systems to
subject tissues to controlled electromagnetic fields. Experiments are
currently in progress, and our preliminary data is extremely promising.

We have subjected normal human neural progenitor (NHNP) cells to low
level electromagnetic fields generated near electrically conductive
plate electrodes (2-D) or within a field generated by a solenoid coil
(3-D). The waveforms tested included sine waves, narrow pulses (delta
function), and square waves. Cells were subjected to 17 days of
electromagnetic field stimulation of all waveforms as well as a DC

The cells were not subjected to transverse electrical fields through the
culture medium, as is often done in cell culture experiments employing
electromagnetic fields, rather the cells were grown within the induced
magnetic field surrounding the electrical conductor. For both the 2-D
and 3-D systems, the magnetic field intensity was limited to ~ 70 mG.
Magnetic field intensity was measured using a linear Hall effect sensor.
For comparison, the Earth's magnetic field is approximately 500 mG at
45o latitude. Rate of change of the magnetic fields was estimated on the
basis of Maxwell's equations and the measured current transient response
in both the conductive plate and the solenoid coil. The mB
(micromagnetic) fields were applied in 5 separate interventions as:

(1) 10 Hz bipolar square waves,
(2) differentiated square waves (“delta function�); narrow pulses
(200 ms) corresponding to each square wave edge,
(3) sine waves of the same amplitude and frequency as the square waves,
(4) DC (steady) mB fields, also of the same amplitude as the square
wave, and
(5) control (no mB field).

Cell Responses: (relative to control)

Proliferation rate increased up to 4x
Morphology changes were macroscopically evident for large colonies of
nerve cells in 2-D
Glucose metabolism +~60% in 3-D system
Gene array profiling indicated very significant increases in expression
of classes of genes related to extra-cellular matrix production, growth,
and metabolism.

All effects were greatest for square and delta functions, no difference
between DC fields and control (no field).

Conclusions: Cells respond to the rate of change in the mB field
(dB/dt), not to the peak field magnitude (Bmax) or total flux exposure.
The high dB/dt of the square waves and the delta were both effective at
influencing cellular response, whereas slowly varying (sine) or non
varying (DC) fields had significantly reduced or no effect. Equivalently
high peak fields or long exposure times (sine and DC, as well as square
wave) were clearly not as important as the rate of change of the mB
field. In this study, peak magnetic field amplitudes were ~ 70 mG,
whereas the Earth's magnetic field on average is ~ 500 mG, but is not
time varying (i.e., it is DC). The electromagnetic interventions carried
out in this study were of course superimposed upon the Earth's DC
magnetic field. It is the time varying nature of the fields that
apparently has the most significant influence on every aspect of the
cellular response. We collectively term these time varying
electromagnetic fields as TVEMFs.

The instrumentation and protocols for this series of experiments have
been filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and two
manuscripts are currently in preparation.

Hi-tech US weaponry could be used in conflict with Iraq

WASHINGTON (AFP) Jan 01, 2003

Military experts say the Pentagon has developed a series of accurate and
powerful new weapons, including a microwave bomb, that could be used in
a war  against Iraq. But they point out that it is the round-the-clock
reliance on precision-guided munitions known as JDAMs and unmanned
drones that is expected to make a difference in the war against the
regime of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

The electromagnetic E-bomb, designed to destroy electronic nerve
centers, could already be in the US arsenal, although Washington has not
announced it publicly.

While it does not kill people, it is capable of causing burns. On top of
that, the E-bomb "could sever communications between Saddam Hussein and
troops that might be ordered to use chemical and biological weapons,"
said John Pike, a military affairs expert. "It could freeze weapons of
mass destruction, at least that would be the hope," he added.

Similarly, the blackout bomb BLU-114B, which can be delivered by planes
or cruise missiles, is capable of disrupting electricity grids in urban
areas. However, cutting off electricity could be a bad idea in the event
that US military should want to broadcast to the Iraqi people the death of
their president.

The defense industry was also improving deep-penetration weapons that
could be used against underground bunkers or mountain caves. Some of these
weapons have already been used in the 1990-1991 Gulf War and in Afghanistan.
Last March in Afghanistan, the US army used the thermobaric bomb
BLU-118S, which is often referred to as a air-fuel weapon capable of
knocking down walls and sucking out oxygen from enclosed spaces.

In September, aerospace giant Lockheed-Martin tested, in the state of
New Mexico, the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM), a cruise
missile launched from F-16 fighter jets that is capable of penetrating the
hardest surfaces and finding its target even through fog and cloud cover. "We
will throw everything at him that we have ... including thermobaric and
bunker buster weapons designed to get at buried arsenals of chemical and
biological weapons," said Chris Hellman of the Center for Defense
Information, in a reference to Saddam Hussein. "As long as we suspect
they are there and that Saddam may resort to using them we will throw
the kitchen sink at him, short of weapons of mass destruction," he

But first and foremost, military experts count on using proven systems
like JDAMs and other precision-guided munitions that rely on global
positioning  satellites to home in on their targets. Precision-guided
weapons represented only seven percent of all munitions used against Iraqi
troops in the Gulf War, according to retired military officer Mike
Vickers. Their share rose to 30 percent in the 1999 Kosovo campaign, to
60 percent in Afghanistan and was expected to reach 80 percent in Iraq,
Vickers said. "The air drop will be almost entirely precision-guided,
and the bulk of it will be satellite instead of laser-guided," Pike
pointed out. To quietly monitor enemy movements, the pilotless drones
Predator and Global Hawk are already in the arsenal. The Marines Corps
has a prototype of Dragon Eye, a mini-drone that can spot snipers in
urban environments like Baghdad. The US Army has just unveiled its
future spy plane called Shadow 200.

But ultimately, despite all technological progress, it is armored ground
units that will bring about the collapse of Saddam Hussein's regime,
according to Pike. Iraqis may be accustomed to air strikes but not to
seeing M-1A2 Abrams tanks at the gates of Baghdad. These tanks, as well
as the armored, tank-like Apache helicopters, have also been modernized.
