Manmade Electromagnetic Fields and Oxidative Stress—Biological Effects and Consequences for Health

May 12, 2021

In Switzerland, the government commissioned an independent study, the results of which incontrovertibly prove the non-thermal effect of electromagnetic fields. 

The new review by Schuermann / Mevissen, published on April 6th, 2021, financed by the Swiss Federal Environment Agency, published in the “International Journal of Molecular Science”, creates clarity through the comprehensive review of the available literature: “The production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which can potentially lead to cellular or systemic oxidative stress, has often been influenced by EMF exposure in animals and cells. In this review we summarize the most important experimental results on oxidative stress in connection with EMF- Exposure from animal and cell studies combined over the past decade. The observations are discussed in the context of molecular mechanisms and health functions such as neurological function, genome stability, immune response and reproduction. Most animal and many cell studies have shown increased oxidative stress caused by RF-EMF and ELF-MF.”
