Electromagnetic Fields and it's Affects on the Hearts Electrical System with Emphasis on the Vagus Nerve; A Theoretical Stance

, backed up by Clinical Facts by Tammy Sauve~

There is a dramatic, upward increase in those affected with heart arrhythmias from harmful "electromagnetic waves" due to the increase in home electronics, the new "Smart Meters" that are being installed on the side of peoples homes, replacing the old standard electric meters, and WIFI devices. "The heart has been found through numerous studies to be very electromagnetically sensitive. This sensitivity extends to all external fields, whether therapeutic or otherwise, including their interactions with each other and with the body" (Pawluk). Many are becoming gravely ill, disabled and even dying from the new Smart Meters, WIFI devices and the ever growing cell phone towers, without realizing that their sudden health ailments are due to the non-ionizing radiations coming

off from these new and expanding technologies. The hazard's to humans from the Smart Meters and all the wireless technology emitting radiations in the environment, workplaces and in homes, have become all too obvious to the medical community, authorities and the public alike. Some area's in California have made the installation of Smart Meters a felony crime and have banned any future installations of these dangerous devices. California's new Smart Meter laws are but only the beginning of a long uphill battle between the electric companies, judicial laws and the American citizens, in the struggle to unveil the hazards of high electromagnetic fields that are penetrating into the bedrooms of sleeping children, your place of work, your children's schools, your entire yard around your home where WIFI signals can reach up to 50 yards or more and into your living room, across the United States. Laboratory studies conducted at Department of Epidemiology discloses the seriousness of exposing humans to electromagnetic fields 24 hours a day in their own homes, "Adjusting for age, year, race, social class, and active work status, longer duration in jobs with elevated magnetic field exposure was associated with increased risk of death from arrhythmia-related conditions and acute myocardial infarction. Indices of magnetic field exposure were consistently related to mortality from arrhythmia and acute myocardial infarction, with

mortality rate ratios of 1.5–3.3 in the uppermost categories" (Savitz, 135-142). During electrical stimulation of the vagal nerves (VNS) for treating arrhythmias, studies show that the electrical current normalizes the heart rhythm and just as these currents are able to correct an irregular heart, they can also be the cause of an irregular heartbeat as well. Our heart has it's own electrical system that can be affected by external electrical currents, such as the use of a defibrillator, that sends electrical jolts into our heart to jump start it beating again. "Even the body’s electrical currents interact with external fields and participate in control of life processes. External EMFs interact with most, if not all, organs and functions in the body. All these interactions clearly paint a very complex picture of EMF actions on the body – leading to the natural conclusion that human functioning is fundamentally inseparable from the EMFs around it”, (Pawluk). We may confidently ascertain from these findings that environmental electromagnetic fields are not only affecting the hearts electrical system but the Vagus Nerve as well. Many researchers concur on the fact that non-ionizing radiation has direct effects on almost all bodily organs in both the human and the mammal organism, alike, thus affecting the Vagus Nerve's ability to produce the necessary chemical, Vagusstoff, that is responsible for controlling the heart

rate. In one German study,Rimbach-study, scientists evaluated 60 individuals that live in close proximity to a cell phone tower for the effects of radiation and electromagnetic fields. They proved beyond a doubt that electromagnetic and radiation directly affect the human body's Neurotransmitters, as announced in the journal, Environmentally-medical-social. According to Professor Buchner and Dr. Horst Eger, we can surmise that the Vagus Nerve Neurotransmitter, Vagusstoff, would also be affected by these fields as well, thus affecting the rhythm of the heart in yet a second, compounded fashion, on top of the effects that the electromagnetic fields already have on the hearts electrical system. "In this study from Bavaria (Germany), urine samples of 60 study participants were taken to be analyzed for their adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine, and phenylethylamine (PEA) levels before and after the activation of a new GSM base station. After the activation of

the GSM base station, the stress hormone levels increased significantly during the first six months while dopamine and PEA levels decreased substantially. Even after one and a half years, the initial levels were not restored" (Gustavs).

In conclusion, we can figuratively surmise that, electromagnetic fields, (non-ionizing radiation), directly affects the heart, twofold, by direct electrical stimulation via the disbursement of non-ionizing radiation, disrupting the hearts electrical rhythms and disabling the Vagus Nerve, causing failure to deliver the Neurotransmitter,Vagusstoff, to the heart.
