Electromagnetic Frequency and How It Effects Calcium Channels

Cell phones emit a form of electromagnetic field (EMF) called radio frequency (RF) radiation or microwave radiation. This radiation is emitted by your cell phone when you talk, text, stream videos or music and even when it’s standby.

The toxic and dangerous effects on our biology are well documented but this science is not well advertised yet it is clear; cell phones, cordless phone, cell phone towers and wireless modems emit radiation that is harmful to living beings


For decades we have been told by our governments, the companies selling these devices, the medical establishment and many so-called experts that this radiation is perfectly harmless.

Here is what you commonly hear;

because of the low frequencies involved this radiation does not have sufficient energy to cause a heating effect and therefore can’t harm you’.

The fact is EMF activates what is known as Voltage Gated Calcium Channels (VGCC). These are channels that are embedded in the cell membranes and are seven million times more sensitive to EMF than the charged particles inside and outside the call, which current 'safety' standards are based on.

So, when a voltage gated calcium channel is activated by EMF (in less than five seconds) research is showing that up to a million of calcium ions flow out of the receptor down this channel every second.

When the EMF activates the VGCC and increases intracellular calcium, it also increases the production of free radicals, specifically peroxynitrate, and causes excess cataracts formation.

Thousands of studies link cell phone radiation exposure to a long list of adverse biological effects, including:

  • DNA single and double strand breaks
  • disruption of cell metabolism
  • increased blood brain barrier permeability
  • disruption to brain glucose metabolism
  • generation of stress proteins

A Congressional Staff Briefing back in 2001 revealed that there are adverse biological effects to EMFs at levels 76000 times lower than the safety standards.

The BioInitiative Report 2012 references over 1,800 new studies showing adverse biological effects from low-level EMF exposures.

The largest study of cell phone use and tumor risk conducted to date found that

regular use of a cell phone by adults can significantly increase the risk of gliomas by 40% with 1640 hours or more of use.” In a study out of Turkey, findings revealed depression, anxiety, and daytime dysfunction scores were higher in the group of high smartphone users than in the group of low smartphone users. In addition, females scored a considerable amount higher in the Smartphone Addiction Scale than males. There was a positive correlation between the Smartphone Addiction Scale scores and depression levels, anxiety levels, and some sleep quality scores.

  • Chronic exposure to low frequency radiation causes dysfunction of the pineal gland, reduces the normal production of melatonin and serotonin (hormone essential for controlling mood) and can contribute to the onset or worsening of depressive symptoms.
  • Research in the population living near power lines has documented elevated psychological and psychiatric symptoms, depression cases.
  • Long exposure to high frequency radiation causes decrease in levels 5-HT (5-hyroxytriyptamine) precursor of serotonin associated with increased anxiety and depression.
  • Insomnia and depression recorded in the population living near tv broadcasting antennas
  • At least five epidemiological studies have shown that proximity to cell phone towers causes an increase of depression, headaches, insomnia, inability to concentrate, irritability, abnormal vision and memory, decreased libido and exhaustion.
  • 22 suicide incidents in South Wales were related with the proximity of victims to cell phone masts. According to Dr. Roger Coghill, member of the Advisory Committee wireless radiation in Great Britain:
  • Using a mobile phone before bedtime, delays and reduces the duration of deep sleep (REM), according to a recent study funded by mobile phone companies. The inability to completely relax is considered to affect significantly the mood.
  • The increased use of information and communication technologies (mobile phones, computers, wireless modems, etc.) is related to an increase in symptoms of depression, insomnia and stress among young people, and the spread of "Digital Depression "in modern workplaces.

“There is a body of research that has over the years pointed to the fact that exposure to mobile radiation can lead to depression. There is evidence of higher suicide rates where people live near any electrical equipment that gives off radio or electrical waves (…) What seems to be happening is that the electrical energy is having an effect on the chemistry of the brain, depleting serotonin levels.”

There is a biochemical result of EMF exposure. Hundreds of studies show when you’re exposed to EMF radiation, intracellular calcium is increased.

This is a problem because our cells need calcium and calcium acts as a signaler inside the cell for important biological tasks to occur. Our cells only need small amounts of calcium to perform necessary functions. So, when intracellular (inside) calcium increases from EMF exposure, it negatively influences the health of the body.

Both nitric oxide and magnesium is needed in the cell to push calcium out of the cell where it belongs. So proper levels of these two ingredients should always be maintained to assist the body in preventing the build of up calcium in the cell. In addition, proper levels of anti-oxidants to support and protect both nitric oxide and magnesium are key.
