“There have been many studies in the literature reported by a variety of investigators using a large number of different in vitro systems which have suggested that cellular signal transduction pathways are affected by EMF. This finding is quite expected since the signal transduction pathways receive both physical and biological information from other cells, as well as the environment, and transmit them in a cellularly appropriate fashion to produce the biochemical signals that regulate cellular functions. The electric field is attenuated within the cell but is amplified across the plasma membrane; therefore, in the absence of a clear indication that the magnetic field alone is responsible for all observed EMF effects, we must hypothesize that recognition and amplification of the information carried in the EMF signal is the domain of the plasma membrane and its signaling systems.”

“There is reasonable agreement as well on which early signaling pathways may be affected. The agreement, however, does not extend to a consensus regarding whether or not EMF effects at the in vivo level can be directly ascribed to any one pathway.”
