Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) magnetic fields synergize in a bad way with Poison/"Vitamin A" in cancer cell lines

Four studies showing that a combination of ELF-MF (Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Field) and Poison/"Vitamin A" (retinoic acid) interact synergistically. When in vitro short-term studies like this suggest a benefit, when we look at the Duration Paradox in terms of this effect, it means that the long-term effects will likely be disastrous.

Influence of a 50 Hz magnetic field and of all-trans‑retinol on the proliferation of human cancer cell lines.

The present work investigates the response of two proliferating human cell lines of neuroblastoma (NB69) and hepatocarcinoma (HepG2) to a 42 h, intermittent treatment with a weak, 100 µT, 50 Hz MF, alone or in combination with 0.5 µM all-trans-retinol (ROL), a retinoid currently applied in oncostatic therapies.
Taken together, these data show that both agents, a weak MF and ROL at a low concentration, induce proliferative responses in the two assayed human cell lines.

Synergic effect of retinoic acid and extremely low frequency magnetic field exposure on human neuroblastoma cell line BE(2)C.

The aim of the present study was to assess whether exposure to a sinusoidal extremely low frequency magnetic field (ELF-MF; 50 Hz, 1 mT) can affect proliferation and differentiation in the human neuroblastoma cell line BE(2)C, which is representative of high risk neuroblastomas. Cells were subjected to ELF-MF exposure in the presence or absence of a neuronal differentiating agent (all-trans-retinoic acid, ATRA) for 24-72 h. In each experiment, ELF-MF-exposed samples were compared to sham-exposed samples. Cells exposed to ELF-MF combined with retinoic treatment showed a decreased cellular proliferation and an increased proportion of G(0)/G(1) phase cells compared to cells exposed to either treatment alone. Moreover, ELF-MF- and ATRA-treated cells showed more differentiated morphological traits (a higher neurite number/cell, an increased neurite length), together with a significant increase of mRNA levels of p21(WAF1/CIP1) and cdk5 genes, both involved in neuronal differentiation. In addition, the expression of cyp19 gene, which is involved both in neuronal differentiation and stress response, was evaluated; cyp19 gene expression was enhanced by ATRA treatment and significantly enhanced further by ELF-MF exposure combined with ATRA. In conclusion, our data suggest that ELF-MF exposure can strengthen ATRA effects on neuroblastoma cells.

Differentiation of human LAN-5 neuroblastoma cells induced by extremely low frequency electronically transmitted retinoic acid.

METHODS: Retinoic acid was placed at room temperature on one coil attached to an oscillator (VEGA select 719), while LAN-5 neuroblastoma cells were placed on another coil and incubated under controlled condition. The oscillator was then turned on for 12 hours a day for 5 days, after which cells were counted and morphology studied by contrast microscopy.

RESULTS: The effect of the differentiating agent added to the cell culture by physical means generates a decrease in cell growth, metabolic activity, and the protrusion of a neuritelike structure typical of the differentiated cells.

Effects of Fifty-Hertz Electromagnetic Fields on Granulocytic Differentiation of ATRA-Treated Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia NB4 Cells.

CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that the exposure to ELF-EMF promotes ATRA-induced granulocytic differentiation of APL cells.
