Postulates on electromagnetic activity in biological systems and cancer

" The exceptional electrical polarity of biological objects and long-range interactions suggest a basic role of the endogenous electromagnetic field generated by living cells. The formulated postulates encompass generation, properties and function of the electromagnetic field connected with biological activity and its pathological deviations. Excited longitudinal polar oscillations in microtubules in eukaryotic cells generate the endogenous electromagnetic field. The metabolic activity of mitochondria connected with water ordering forms conditions for excitation. The electrodynamic field plays an important role in the establishment of coherence, directional transport, organization of morphological structures, interactions, information transfer, and brain activity. An overview of experimental results and physical models supporting the postulates is included." {Credits 1}

" The first three postulates concerning the endogenous coherent electromagnetic field generated by oscillations in microtubules under conditions established by mitochondria have a strong experimental support. Experimental data on living cells indicate the presence of an electromagnetic field in a wide frequency spectrum." {Credits 1}

" Disturbances of biophysical processes might be caused also by defects in the link of generation of the microtubule oscillations and the electromagnetic field. A hypothesis explains asbestos carcinogenicity by the capability of the asbestos fibres to short-circuit distant parts of the cell with different levels of the electromagnetic field. Asbestos by itself may form optic fibres for the cellular field [66] and/or conductive wires after adsorption of specific proteins and molecules containing iron atoms at the fibres surface forming conductive layers [67] Nevertheless, other hypotheses explain asbestos carcinogenicity on the basis of the mechanism of oxidative stress and chromosome tangling." {Credits 1}
