    There was a discussion on the forum back in September:
    viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1522&p=28370&hilit=magnetic#p28370

    It seems that the last post in the thread talks about how electromagnetic radiation mediates its effects - through calcium "channels" in the cells. Here is perhaps the most comprehensive study on this topic to date, discussing that mechanism:
    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... 12088/full
    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... .12088/pdf

    From the abstract:

    "...Downstream responses of such EMF exposures may be mediated through Ca2+/calmodulin stimulation of nitric oxide synthesis. Potentially, physiological/therapeutic responses may be largely as a result of nitric oxide-cGMP-protein kinase G pathway stimulation. A well-studied example of such an apparent therapeutic response, EMF stimulation of bone growth, appears to work along this pathway. However, pathophysiological responses to EMFs may be as a result of nitric oxide-peroxynitrite-oxidative stress pathway of action. A single such well-documented example, EMF induction of DNA single-strand breaks in cells, as measured by alkaline comet assays, is reviewed here. Such single-strand breaks are known to be produced through the action of this pathway. Data on the mechanism of EMF induction of such breaks are limited; what data are available support this proposed mechanism. Other Ca2+-mediated regulatory changes, independent of nitric oxide, may also have roles. This article reviews, then, a substantially supported set of targets, VGCCs, whose stimulation produces non-thermal EMF responses by humans/higher animals with downstream effects involving Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent nitric oxide increases, which may explain therapeutic and pathophysiological effects."

    I didn't want to underline all the mentions of the word, but it is ironic that only couple of days after posting on the harmful effects of NO, this radical is found at the heart of yet another broadly harmful mechanism (EMF radiation). I suggest for people interested in the matter to read the study. It has some really good information/background.

    In terms of practicality - niacinamide is one substance that would lower NO and thus mitigate some of the negative effects of EMF. However, as the studies points out NO is just one of the several putative mechanism through which the negative effects of EMF are carried out. A better option would be to use calcium channel blockers (CCB), since those would act earlier in the mechanism pathway. One such drug (that has many other benefits as well) is our old friend cyproheptadine.

    Finally, here is another study on EMF blocking with CCB:

    I get more impressed by cyproheptadine every day. It has so many benefits.

    Doesn't the EMF have bad effects on other ions with cyclotron resonance? Are these the only effects of EMF?

    @haidut do you know what 81mG is in terms of a range of typical human exposure? I am pretty sure this is an issue for me. Any ideas about best dosage of ccb or cyproheptadine for this?

    It may be an issue. Studies have shown that exposure to just 4 mG may cause leukemia. I think any dose cypro should help but if I was exposed consistently I would take 2mg daily.
    https://www.elp.com/articles/print/...-distribution/growing-concerns-about-emf.html
    "...Recent studies have reported statistically significant increased risk of childhood leukemia associated with exposures to magnetic fields in the range of 3–4 milliGauss (mG). Two science reviews, one from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the other from the California Department of Health Sciences Services (Cal DHS) also conclude that EMF is a "possible" cause of childhood leukemia. This is the first time that classification has been made of EMF."

    Essential minerals with known calcium channels blocking properties should be the first lines of defense since they accumulate in the body, instead of relying on drugs with temporary effects. Peat has also mentioned that Cyproheptadine shouldn't be taken for more than a few weeks.

    Such minerals are Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium.

    Magnesium and Vascular Changes in Hypertension
    Magnesium: nature's physiologic calcium blocker. - PubMed - NCBI

    Zinc (Zn2+) blocks voltage gated calcium channels in cultured rat dorsal root ganglion cells. - PubMed - NCBI
    Zn2+ sensitivity of high- and low-voltage activated calcium channels. - PubMed - NCBI

    Correlation between oxidative stress and L-type calcium channel expression in the ventricular myocardia of selenium-deficient mice. - PubMed - NCBI
    In the case of Selenium, correcting deficiency reduces calcium channels activation but high doses tend to increase it. It is also known that more than 100mcg daily has an anti-thyroid effect while around 80mcg is optimal to promote thyroid activity and decrease TSH levels.

    I can particularly attest to Magnesium's effectiveness as it completely removed tinnitus occurence, which can be treated with calcium channel blockers. I also don't have to take it daily, the effect persists for weeks without supplementing.

    @haidut Hey man I tried to find the thread where you mention t3 and/or androgens mitigating radiation damage to testes and couldnt find it for some odd reason. Can you share the link to that thread?

    I don't think there is a separate thread. It was based on the fact that calcium channel blockers protect from EMF effects and both T3 and androsterone have calcium blocking properties.

    At what dose does t3 and androsterone exert their CCB properties?
