Well, that's not true in any sense. Start first with "frequency of what?" because frequency is a property of something else: taken by as a term by
itself it doesn't have any context.
Some rigid biostructures like viral capsids have resonant mechanical frequencies, in a physics sense, but this wouldn't have any effect on that. If
you get waaaaay up there in EM to where you're into the long IR band, you'll start to hit some molecular quantum mechanical resonances but those
don't hold a lot of potential for ripping things apart.
From a device standpoint, running a low grade current through a cell could cause damage by heating, but probably not in this case, and you aren't
using it to affect muscle or nerve cells by intention, those have polarized ion pumps that are sensitive to small voltage gradients, which is what
triggers them. But bacteria probably don't.
On the other hand, bacteria and protistae have a type of polarized membrane your cells don't. The cellular respiration of eukaryotes depends on that
- they use the membrane as a sort of big mitochondrion substitute. I don't know off hand what purpose having charged membranes does for protistae or
prokaryotes. But I'd assume it's there for a purpose, so if you interfere with it, I could see it causing trouble. Viruses, I don't know.
I've got one of these things myself, and it's somewhat to fairly uncomfortable to use. I can't conclusively say it did anything one way or the
other, as opposed to, say, the BT5Pro which had unmistakable effects.
