    Hypothesis on mechanism for the ELF-EMF-induced biological effects

    From the blog of Dariusz Leszczynski, Betwqeen a Rock and A Hard Place

    Excerpt

    As the Chief Editor of the Frontiers in Radiation and Health (a specialty of the Frontiers in Public Health) it is my pleasure to announce that the FiR&H journal has just published its second article. The final version of the hypothesis article by Mats-Olof Mattsson and Myrtil Simko: “Grouping of experimental conditions as an approach to evaluate effects of extremely low-frequency magnetic fields on oxidative response in in vitro studies” is now freely available in open access system to all readers.

    In the abstract of the article, the authors state (in part):

    “…A large body of literature deals with biological effects of extremely low-frequency magnetic fields (ELF MFs) studied in vitro. Despite the multitude of studies, no coherent picture has evolved regarding the plausibility of effects at low-flux densities or regarding the interaction mechanisms. Here, we propose that ELF MF exposure in vitro causes changes in oxidative status as an early response. We tested this hypothesis by scrutinizing the literature and applying a grouping approach for analyzing relevant biological properties and exposure conditions.
