Israeli researchers discovered the existence of tiny calcite
crystals in the human pineal gland. The crystals are very similar
to the otoconia (also crystals) in the inner ear, indicating that
they too may be able to generate tiny amounts of electric charge.
If this proves to be the case, they could interact with external
electromagnetic fields such as those produced by mobile phones.
Any interaction could interfere with pineal gland activity, such
as the production of melatonin, which is known to protect the
body against a wide range of diseases as well as regulate several
body cycles (e.g. sleep/wake).
Further research is needed. If the above is confirmed it will
constitute a previously unknown mechanism by which extremely low
level microwave fields could affect brain function.
Ed.- In depth research by Bristol University's Professor Dennis
Henshaw unearthed nine studies suggesting that low level electromagnetic
fields reduce the pineal gland's production of the hormone melatonin.
Melatonin regulates many biological rhythms, including the sleep
cycle, and is thought to protect against a range of illnesses,
