Medical research using electricity, even to quell serious diseases such as cancer, is escalating in countries around the world. Researchers at Kumamoto University in Japan have identified a very high level voltage Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) that is:
The optimal PEF conditions for increasing the permeability of a cell membrane to calcium. This technique is appealing as a potential cancer treatment since cancer cells are particularly sensitive to an abnormal influx of calcium, it is comparatively cheap, and it has few side effects.
In addition to Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF), Pulsed electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) and gentle microcurrents of electricity have been researched and are used to disarm harmful, disease-causing microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses.
