To All:     The title of this study by Dr. Rusel Reiter "tells the story"  --   the PRICE of our U.S. National Institute of Health not imforming the public is indeed, "very high."   The abstract doesn't mention EMF's but "the meaning" is apparent........     
I will review the entire study and compare with the other studies and information contained in Dr. Reiter's book, "Melatonin."    Take care  -   Joanne

Melatonin: Lowering the High Price of Free Radicals.

Department of Cellular and Structural Biology, The University of Texas Health Science Center, 7703 Floyd Curl Dr., San Antonio, Texas 78284-7762.

The endogenous antioxidative defense system reduces molecular toxicity of oxygen and nitrogen-based reactive species. Melatonin is an efficient direct and indirect antioxidant. It detoxifies the highly reactive hydroxyl radical and neutralizes other toxic species, including singlet oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, nitric oxide, and peroxynitrite anion, and stimulates several antioxidative enzymes.
