Resting and grazing cattle and deer tend to align their body axes in the geomagnetic North-South direction. The mechanism(s) that underlie this behavior remain unknown. Here, we show that extremely low-frequency magnetic fields (ELFMFs) generated by high-voltage power lines disrupt alignment of the bodies of these animals with the geomagnetic field. Body orientation of cattle and roe deer was random on pastures under or near power lines. Moreover, cattle exposed to various magnetic fields directly beneath or in the vicinity of power lines trending in various magnetic directions exhibited distinct patterns of alignment. The disturbing effect of the ELFMFs on body alignment diminished with the distance from conductors. These findings constitute evidence for magnetic sensation in large mammals as well as evidence of an overt behavioral reaction to weak ELFMFs in vertebrates. The demonstrated reaction to weak ELFMFs implies effects at the cellular and molecular levels.
OVERVIEW FOR THE LAYMAN - In this article the fact that the most common form of DNA ( B-DNA) is electrically conductive is used to show that viral, bacterial, and animal (human) DNA can be thought of and used as tuned "radio" antennas. For example by choosing the proper frequency of light to match a resonance frequency of the length of DNA in a virus, the oscillating electric field of the light can induce an electric current from the virus DNA ends (field emission). This field emission can damage the virus DNA end segments and surrounding protein structures and thereby make the virus non-infective. When considering human DNA gene sets as tuned antenna, specific frequencies in the microwave range can be used at relatively low power levels for short time intervals to open up specific gene sets. This allows for resetting of genetic age clocks (restoring telomeres on chromosome ends), reversal of some genetic defects, and total tissue repair (opening up some fetal gene sequences), even from traumatic damage such as amputations and brain and spinal cord damage.
