Other effects – background

The impact of electromagnetic fields on biological systems is not limited to the immune system. The physical mechanisms described in the “physics-biology” page also explain a number of other effects which were pointed out by other scientists, with the “calcium efflux” being historically the first.

Most of these other effects, including calcium efflux, were found at power values compatible with official exposure limits yet relatively high, generally above 0.6 V/m (1 mW/m2).

However the present work opens up the possibility that physical mechanisms similar to those underlying effects on the immune system may cause effects at much lower power values.

A well-documented such effect which affects human health has been investigated: the effect on Body Mass Index.
