Document: Living Antennas Arrow_right_green

Nature has evolved wonderful antenna systems on many scales, throughout her biodiverse kingdom, from entire organisms down to molecular structures.

This map can only introduce the topic of natural, living antennas. There is so much yet to learn about them, and yet we have jumped ahead of ourselves by developing powerful technologies which may well disrupt them.

This NM5 map is posted here as an image but is linked in the NM4 title box to the website page with the most current fully hyperlinked PDF version.

Document: Cognitive Dysfunction, Dementia, Alzheimer's Disease Arrow_right_green

As we age, our risk for cognitive dysfunction, dementia and Alzheimer's disease increases. It is difficult to diagnose the early stages of these conditions, so it is better to think in terms of prevention. We can maintain physical and mental activities and also eat well. This map gives links to lab markers, articles, studies, and a few healthy products. As always, the information is intended to be educational only and not a prescription for anyone.

The original NM5 map is posted as an image and fully hyperlinked PDF at the website linked in the title box. Red starred branches are newest, not necessarily the most important.

Document: EMF and Interfacial Water Arrow_right_green

Our bodies are mostly water. And almost all of the water in our bodies is located at interfaces with membranes or molecules. Interfacial water acts more like a crystal than a bulk fluid. It resonates and responds to EMF, both natural and artificial. It is here that the adverse effects are believed to occur.

This map presents information and links to overviews, studies and hypotheses on this important subject.

The original NM5 map is located at the website linked in the top title box as an image and an actively hyperlinked PDF.

Document: Memory Problems, Alzheimer's Disease, EMF Arrow_right_green

This is a set of two NM5 maps, posted here as images only, but linked in the title boxes to fully hyperlinked PDFs.

The first is on memory dysfunctions caused by non-ionizing electromagnetic fields. The second is on Alzheimer's disease (AD) and the increased risk of it where exposures to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields are high. While AD is not just a memory problem but a pathologic process, they are often hard to distinguish in the early stages. Links to studies and articles describing various proposed mechanisms are provided. Red stars indicate the newest links.

Document: EMF and the Auditory System Arrow_right_green

Tinnitus is the perception of sound (ringing, hissing, buzzing) in one or both ears, not produced by an external source. It is a common complaint, affecting approximately one in six Americans. It ranges in severity from a mild background noise to a constant disabling disruption of daily function. Some cases begin following known stresses such as loud noises or medications, but many times the causes are unknown.

Many people sensitive to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields describe various ear sensations -- heat, throbbing, pain -- as well as tinnitus. Some studies have been performed and several mechanisms suggested. This map offers a linked overview of reports, mechanisms, studies and articles.

Document: EMF and Major Appliances Arrow_right_green

"Smart appliances" are major household appliances with built-in wireless transmitters designed to perform a number of functions. They will apparently report to you via your computer or smart phone how much electricity you are using and what the charges are, shifting energy consumption to off-peak times. Some have voice recognition software. Some remind you of maintenance schedules. Some help technicians remotely diagnose problems. Some warn you to conserve energy. There are other features and functions as well. This map links many of major companies offering "smart" appliances, and presents an overview of the topic. Health and environmental issues are not discussed in depth in this map.

Document: EMF and the Environment: Index of Maps Arrow_right_green

How does massive and widespread EMF affect the environment? Many species of plants and animals (including humans) have been studied. The health of individual species as well as biodiversity and interdependence are adversely affected in complex ways. This map indexes other maps at www.Oscillatorium.com which discuss the effects of natural and artificial EMF on the environment at large, or specific species. The most recent map is on The Environmental Cost of Cell Phones.

Document: NovaMind5 Fonts Arrow_right_green

These three maps are images of maps created in NM5 with all available fonts at the time. The list has slightly changed with upgrades. I created this so I could see at a glance what the fonts look like for designing maps. Not all options within families are displayed, but some of the popular familes are displayed completely in one of the maps. Light background topic colors were selected for ease of viewing.

They may not all translate with sharing online, but they are fine with image and PDF exports.

Document: EMF and Biological Effects: Proposed Mechanisms Arrow_right_green

How do artificial non-ionizing electromagnetic fields interfere with biological tissue functions and structures? Many mechanisms have been proposed. They are not exclusive of each other. They are not equally well studied or supported. The effects on any given individual may depend upon the species, gender, health, age or tissue(s) involved. This map lists many of the mechanisms proposed, with several links to demonstrate each one. This NM5 map is posted here as an image, with a link in the title box to the website page where the latest fully hyperlinked PDF version may be accessed. Red links are the newest branches.

Document: Albuminuria: Supportive Natural Therapies Arrow_right_green

One of the serious complications of diabetes mellitus is renal failure. The earliest sign of kidney pathology is microalbuminuria, the appearance of greater than normal excretion of protein in the urine. This map offers links to studies and articles which make dietary recommendations to slow the progression of renal disease. Consult your health provider before undertaking any new therapy.

Document: Tragedy of the Wireless Commons Arrow_right_green

Every wireless phone call, download, use of an app or period of ‘net surfing, causes toxic high frequency electromagnetic (EM) radiation to move at the speed of light through the environment. It travels from tower to tower, affecting living beings in its path.

Can we escape the long-term consequences of this invisible pollution when only a few of us perceive its short-term biological effects? Does our species have the right to pollute the biosphere with unnatural EM radiation, or do all living beings have the right to natural background radiation?

Individuals and governments are making choices and utilizing technologies that adversely affect all of life. This is the tragedy of the commons, an important topic introduced in this map. Thank you to Cindy Sage and Garrett Hardin.

Document: Methylation, Glutathione and EMF Arrow_right_green

All living beings evolved without needing physiologic strategies for coping with heavy burdens of exogenous toxins. We have limited capacities to produce and recycle glutathione, the most important antioxidant, in our cells. We push our detoxification systems, including methylation -- which assists in the production of glutathione -- to their limits with our chemical exposures. To this, we add EMF. While we work to minimize our exposures to EMF sources, we can try to assist the detoxification and antioxidant functions within us. This map offers studies and links on the rationale for supporting our antioxidant defenses.
