It has been established that the electromagnetic field is a
physical irritant, able to induce significant functional and
organic changes in the nervous, cardiovascular, blood
production, endocrine and other


systems of the human


organism
.


It has been noticed that when people experience
influence of a weak electromagnetic field for a lengthy
period of time, that results in damage to the
cardiovascular system
(brad
ycardia, hypotension),
neurosis, speeding up of erythrocyte sedimentation
reaction and reduction of the


albumin
-
globulin effect
.


It is stated that a person


cannot get used to


radio waves as an irritant, i. e.


the damages, done to the


organism, are accumulated
.


The biological effect of weak electromagnetic fields is referred
to as specific. The fields affect the central nervous system and
thus, damage most vitally important systems. It is considered
that nervous cells are able to “feel” electromagnetic fields,
since
:


The nervous cell membranes detect the fields
;


The fields affect ions’ motion, especially ions’ ability to
penetrate the nervous cells’ membranes
;


The internal kalium gradient in the cells is changed
;


Ions’ motions are synchronized, which results in changes in the
sensitivity of nerves’ receptors
;


The frequencies of the entire organism and its individual
systems are affected
.


The effect of electromagnetic fields depends on the individual
characteristics of the organism and organs, which give different
response to electromagnetic radiation
.

Different organs’ sensitivity to
electromagnetic fields depends on their parameters (for instance,
weak or strong), the vascular network


and the cells’ differentiation


level
.


The transparent eye
tissues, testicles and
central nervous system
are especially sensitive to
electromagnetic fields’
heat effect
.
The
pathogenetic mechanism
of the organs and
systems, most sensitive to
electromagnetic fields, is
shown in the table
.

Crystalline lens

Cataract

The absence of the vascular network and
small ability of the crystalline lens to
decompose energy results in the increase
of its temperature, which, in turn, results in
stoppage of the mitosis process and the
lens gets cloudy
.

Reprodu
ctive
system

Func
tional disorders

The cell differentiation in the testicles
occurs at a great speed, the intersticic cells
produce less androgenes, which results in
development of a hypofunction of the
hypophysis and the whole reproductive
system
.

C
entral nervous
system

Func
tional disorders

The
EM
F wave difraction and reflection
occurs due to the sphere shape of the
skull, in central parts of the CNS the
radiation energy concentration is higher
;

the brain stem and hypothalamus are
especially sensitive to radiation
,

therefore
their hyperthermia can result in disorders
of functioning of the CNS
.


EM
F can damage eyes,
result in leukemia and
brain tumors. The people,
facing EMF more
frequently may experience
functional changes of the
cardiovascular and
immune systems as well
as the breathing organs
.

Depending on the strength and duration of the EMF, acute and chronic
changes in the organism, listed in the table below, may occur
.
