Every day there are more and more scientific studies and articles discovering that everything is made of energy! Even our emotions. The latest finding of “internal compass needles” was found by researchers from the University Of Munich, and may give you food for thought.
Scientists from the University of Munich, led by geophysicist Michael Winklhofer, say they’ve located and identified “internal compass needles” in the noses of rainbow trout. These are called magnetosensory cells, and they turn out to be far more sensitive to magnetic fields than anyone previously thought.
The cells sense the field by means of micrometer-sized inclusions composed of magnetic crystals, probably made of magnetite. These inclusions are coupled to the cell membrane, changing the electrical potential across the membrane when the crystals realign in response to a change in the ambient magnetic field.
“This explains why low-frequency magnetic fields generated by powerlines disrupt navigation relative to the geomagnetic field and may induce other physiological effects,” said Winklhofer.
As the number of modern devices emitting electromagnetic fields continues to rise, people are becoming increasingly concerned about the cumulative effects on their mental and physical health. Some of the sources of electromagnetic pollution — sometimes called “electro-smog” — which exist right now include:
• Smart meters
• Mobile phones
• Wi-fi broadband
• Circuit breaker boxes
• Power supplies to computers and appliances
• Treadmills and exercise equipment
• Cell phone towers
• Commercial radio and TV transmissions
• Hair dryers, blenders and other high-amperage home appliances
