AN INTRODUCTION TO THE INTERACTION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM WITH ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS

Abstract : The present paper is a synthesis of a recently published model of the interaction of the immune system with electromagnetic waves. It is limited to the interaction of the immune system with electromagnetic waves below 3 GHz, suitable for the interpretation of interactions of the immune system with radiofrequency waves commonly used in radio-communications. Three states (Cognate antigen Recognized CR, Antigen Not Recognized ANR, and Neutral State) of T lymphocytes are introduced, which facilitates the understanding of the model. The intrinsic consistency of the model is made more apparent by first presenting the physical model of antigen recognition and non-recognition, after which the interaction of T lymphocytes with electromagnetic waves appears as an unavoidable consequence of this physical model. The power dependency of the interaction and the power thresholds are also discussed.
