Cell Phone Usage Effects on In Vitro Blood

 

Human Blood Cell Research: Alteration of the Percentage Content of White Blood Cell (WBC) Count after the Exposure of Blood Samples in vitro to EMR

© 2008 By Dr. Howard W. Fisher*, Dr. Seymour Pisarek, Dr. Igor V. Smirnov


ABSTRACT


The effects of electromagnetic radiation on human blood are not well documented in the literature.  Many investigators have postulated that this radiation is capable of invoking a response from a number of white blood cell types.  Smirnov (2006) has investigated EMR effects from computer monitors on in vitro blood.   A more growing concern is the effects of RF radiation from cell phones. The MRET polymer however has uniquely demonstrated the ability to shield the cellular structures of the body against the damaging effects of EMR. Even though the radiation is still entering the body, the neutralizing effect of this piezoelectric liquid crystal polymer has the ability to render the radiation harmless. The MRET polymer can neutralize negative effects of EMR by changing the quality of the electromagnetic field rather than reducing its power. Any type of device that claims to reduce the power of electromagnetic fields would have to distort the transmitted signals and definitely adversely effect the reception of cellular phones.  When one considers that most appliances such as cellular and cordless phones, computers, and even vacuum cleaners are usually used right next to the human body, it is reasonable to conclude that these electromagnetic fields will cause biological changes and are capable of damaging tissue and causing disease.   Three blood samples were drawn from each subject and complete blood counts (CBC) were analyzed.  The first samples were used as controls.  Sample two was exposed to fifteen minutes of radiation from an unshielded cell phone.  Sample three was exposed to fifteen minutes of radiation from an MRET shielded cell phone.  The analysis revealed that the MRET shield provided a protective effects as reflected by changes to granulocyte count, lymphocyte count, and white blood cell (WBC) count.


INTRODUCTION


It has been well documented that electromagnetic fields can cause changes to almost all physiological systems in the body, including the cardiovascular, neurological, hormonal and immune systems and the morphology and proportion of cell types found in blood.   In vitro blood samples from human subjects were exposed to cell phone radiation and the changes to the granulocytes, lymphocytes, and white blood cell count was determined.   The molecular resonance effect technology (MRET) polymer, known as the MRET Shield or the King-BioPro cell phone chip, does not reduce the intensity (power) of electromagnetic fields. To date there is no practical device capable of significantly diminishing electromagnetic field radiation. Every external electromagnetic field generates an excitation in the crystalline structures of the MRET polymer compound. Due to this phenomenon of piezoelectricity, the epoxy polymer generates biologically active subtle electromagnetic oscillations that are superimposed on the external electromagnetic fields effecting biological systems and preventing biological damage using magnetic noise fields.  Testing was conducted to determine if the MRET polymer could express a beneficial effect to the potential changes to the blood samples caused  by the RF radiation.


METHOD


The effect of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) generated by a cell phone on in vitro human blood was analyzed by the Manipal Acunova Central Laboratory Services in Whitefield, Bangalore, Karnatka, India using automated cell counters. Three samples of blood were drawn from each of five subjects.  One sample was used as a control.  The other blood samples were exposed to the cell phone radiation (RFR) and ICRW (information carrying radio waves) from a Nokia model 1600 type RH 64 cell phone for fifteen (15) minutes at a distance of 1 cm.  The effect of RF (radio frequency) radiation on the human blood samples was observed without a shield (sample called unshielded) and with an MRET polymer shield (sample called shielded) and the results compared with the control group.


OBSERVATIONS


All results were analyzed by Mr. Arun Kumar with quality check done by Mr. Anil Kumar under the authorization of Dr. Raghavendra Karanth.  The results for granulocytes, lymphocytes and white blood cell counts are listed in Table I.

DISCUSSION


Granulocytes are a critical component of blood and play an important role in the immune system function.  The Granulocyte content deceased by 5.92% from the effects of the cell phone radiation (Figure I).  The installation of the MRET shielding polar polymer on the cell phone totally negated the effects of the cell phone radiation on the granulocytes count eliminating any suppression of Granulocytes by EMR.  The observations show that there was an actual increase over control values (2.36%)  in the shielded samples.   
It is evident that the presence of the MRET polymer shielding device protected the blood samples from significant amount of harmful effects (decreased number of circulating granulocytes) resulting from the exposure to EMR but in fact created a beneficial enhancement over control values.
The blood tests also showed that the shielded group of blood samples had 6.46% less increase in Lymphocyte content than the non-shielded group. The Lymphocyte content in non-shielded group increased by 4.98% over the control group and with the MRET polymer by the shielded blood demonstrated a 1.48% decrease in lymphocyte levels. (Figure 2).  An increased lymphocyte count is associated with a physiological response to an antigenic or inflammatory stimulus or infection. The general consensus is that the increase of lymphocytes above normal level increases the risk of leukemia, lymphomas, and other disorders.

The White Blood Cells (WBC) are the cornerstone of immune system function.  Decreased levels of WBC indicate a weakness in the function of the immune system.  Elevated WBC levels, within normal limits, are associated with an increased level of protection by the circulating elements of the immune system.  The exposure of blood samples to the external EMR of the cell phone resulted in an alteration of the percentage counts in the overall white blood cell count (Figure III).  The unshielded blood samples displayed a decrease by 140 cells/µl. over the control values.  The shielded sample revealed an increase of 240 cells/µl cell phone over the control and  a 380 cell/µl increase over the unshielded sample.

This experiment provides evidence that the exposure of human blood samples in vitro to EMR affects White Blood Cells morphology related to the stress response.  The installation of MRET-Shield on cell phone actually eliminated  the effect of EMR on blood morphology.

CONCLUSION

The experiment demonstrated the decrease of the granulocyte count and White Blood Cell counts (WBC) and the increase of Lymphocytes for in vitro blood samples exposed to unshielded cell phone (RF) radiation. It also showed that the installation of MRET-Shield on the cell phone reduced the level of changes in granulocytes, lymphocytes and the white blood cell counts. These results prove that the MRET polymer not only shields and neutralizes harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation, but also based on these findings, one might conclude that the subtle low frequency oscillations generated by EMR shielding polymer material may produce certain biological effects that helps the human body to achieve the optimum homeostasis.
