EMF As a Cause of Metal Implant Failure in Spinal Fusion
Spinal fusion is usually done with metal plates, screws, and rods. Implant failure can occur but the cause is not always known. In this study, scientists look for corrosion currents around the implants. They suspect these electric currents result in bone loss and loosening of the implant. Past studies have shown that corrosion and wear of metal implants does release metal ions into the area. The cells of the body react to these degradation products. The immune system forms complexes to destroy this debris. The result is inflammation and scarring. When two metals are in the same area, they can generate electric currents. The electric current has a biologic effect on the bone. Bone-building cells called osteoblasts are destroyed when exposed to this electromagnetic field (EMF). Source
Researchers have found that there are a number of factors that influence the degree to which you may be affected by EMF’s and other types of radiowaves. For example, according to the research by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, your physical body, such as your body weight, body-mass index, bone density, and water and electrolyte levels can alter the conductivity and biological reactivity to EMFs. Heavy metals in your brain also act as micro-antennas, concentrating and increasing reception of EMF radiation. Likewise, any kind of metal implants and/or amalgam tooth fillings will significantly increase reception of microwaves, and the mircrocurrents from cell phones and other ambient fields. Source.
