Recent work indicates the very real possibility of sources for interference in the metabolism of the potassium ion within the human body (potassium levels that are too low in the body may present medical difficulties such as heart failure, fatigue, muscular weakness and depression). This interference is based upon the detection of continuous and apparently artificial ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) propagation at 4Hz multiples. The fifth harmonic of this radiation, detected at 20Hz, corresponds to the cyclotronic frequency of the potassium ion in the mid latitude ranges of the globe. Readers are referred to a previous Carnicom article on this topic titled ’POTASSIUM INTERFERENCE IS EXPECTED’ (dated May 15, 2005), and to the work of Dr. Robert Becker for additional information on this subject. Upon further inquiry by Clifford Carnicom on the attempt to increase potassium levels in the diet has revealed some unexpected findings. It might be considered reasonable for an individual to seek out a potassium supplement, in addition to the investigation of changes in the diet. Such a search has been conducted by Carnicom...upon examining all potassium supplements at the local health food store, regardless of brand, Clifford soon noticed that no products were available that provided a level of potassium greater than 3% of the recommended daily allowance for potassium.
It is shown within this report that the potassium ion is specifically expected to incur biological interference within people over large regions of the earth's surface. This is due to the fact that the fifth harmonic of the ELF that has been repeatedly measured over a period of several years corresponds to the cyclotronic resonant frequency of potassium. This fifth harmonic, along with numerous other harmonics is a regular component of the ELF radiation that under measurement at this time. This expected interference, albeit intentional or not, can be shown to exist based upon the principles and physics of cyclotronic resonance, a phenomenon well established in classical electromagnetic theory. The emphasis in this report is upon the potassium ion, which is of fundamental importance to human health. Although there are additional ions which deserve discussion at a later point, the primary ranking of potassium in human biology is of special concern. Additional discussion on this page outlines the definition of cyclotronic resonance, as well as a mathematical model for determining the atomic number for an element (in this case potassium) that is affected by a particular cyclotronic frequency. And though such unique combinations, such as in this case with potassium, are not common, they do occur. They are of concern with respect to human biological function and interference, as these ions will absorb energy and can lead to the disruption of cellular ion exchange processes.
