“The magnitude of the observed EMF-induced effects on the enzyme ODC [the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase] is large enough to be biologically significant. In vivo evidence shows that the magnitude of the EMF-induced increase in the enzyme ODC is large enough to increase tumorigenesis. However, these findings do not prove that these EMF-induced alterations in ODC activity actually cause either adverse or beneficial downstream effects. It simply means that EMF induced effects can not be ruled out on the basis of the magnitude of the change in ODC activity. Most of the ODC studies reviewed indicate that EMF can cause an approximately two-fold increase in ODC activity.”
