“Clean” Pollution: The Hidden Legacy of The Electromagnetic Wave

Rajesh Ghosh, Satyendra Sunkavalli

Abstract—The near exponential increase in the use of household electric and electronic devices worldwide has subjected humans to a pervasive, yet paradoxically under-appreciated danger, the likes of which they have never before been subjected to in their evolutionary history. While the human frame has built-in defenses to handle the hazards of secondary metabolite chemical toxicants it is completely vulnerable and defenseless against this new threat. This review paper examines the putative role of the electric, magnetic and electromagnetic waves on human physiology and biochemistry at a multitude of levels, ranging from sub-cellular to systemic, and the means whereby these insidious deleterious effects may be ameliorated. EM radiation is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, residue less and invisible - it is thus a 'Clean' form of environmental pollutant.

Index Terms—ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, Electric field, Electromagnetic wave, Leukemia, Magnetic field, Melatonin, Pollution.
