Dear Örjan: Thank you for the graphs regarding
development of body length and BMI....!!! I started this
email several days ago and may have forgotten the exact point I planned
to make but I am pretty sure I was going to mention the fact that my
two grandsons' "got well" after their beds were moved away from
electric meters. This would have obviously increased their
natural production of melatonin.
I may have been going to mention that one of my guinea pigs
developed osteomyelitis (I did make file notes below before getting
sidetracked) and that was shortly after her exposure to electric meter
on our back bedroom wall. She "got well" when I moved her to the
basement. The vet was "very surprised" and mentioned she did not
expect her to improve.
Your forward of the graphs caused me to do a search and I located
the info re cancer radiation therapy I copied below.
The information is very important and supports the hair loss that
recently occurred in my granddaughter's hamster when she had the cage
too close to her TV set. This morning, I measured around 18.0
milligauss at the side of the TV when it was on. We discussed
former location of the cage. I measured approx. 6.0 milligauss at
the edge of dresser where cage sat with between 3.5 milligauss and 4.0
milligauss in approximate location of the little hut the hamster
(Honey) slept in during the day.
The TV was never left on all night long but was often on for hours
during the day. Hamsters are nocturnal as you most likely
know. Several days after the cage was moved -- "ambient
readings" of approx. 0.2 milligauss, Honey started running on her
wheel. About two weeks after the cage was moved, it was obvious
the hair loss on bridge of her nose as well as on her back was
This morning, we also discussed that the new hair is of different
texture and is now much lighter than before -- almost gold/yellow
instead of brown.
I have several studies re hair loss that correlate with what
happened to Honey as well as a neighbor down our street who lost most
of his hair. Initially thought neighbor's hair loss was due to
our two high voltage powerlines but I have now learned he had an
electric clock right behind his head -- on headboard of waterbed.
If I have forgotten something I had planned to ask or comment on,
I will let you know if I think of it. Thanks again and take
care - Joanne

Therapy - Life Extension site:
Hair loss. Radiation therapy can cause hair loss
(alopecia), but only in the area being treated (Irvine L et al. 1999).
Hair loss is usually temporary and re-growth is evident within a few
weeks after completion of therapy.
Melatonin has been reported to have a beneficial
effect on hair growth in animals (Oxenkrug G et al. 2001).
Furthermore, a study of 40 women suffering from alopecia sought to
determine whether topically applied melatonin influences hair growth. A
melatonin solution (0.1 percent) or placebo was applied to the scalp
daily for six months. Positive results were obtained in the
melatonin-treated group (Fischer TW et al. 2004).
