Background: Previous studies have used highly sophisticated devices for measuring the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) of plants and from the heart and brain of man. The purpose of this communication is to introduce a simplified method whereby EMFs generated by plant and animal tissues could be visualized with optical and video microscopy. Methods: A solution containing aliquots of fine iron particles (average diameter, 2 microns) and a specific Prussian Blue stain for iron was applied between two glass slides to hold green leaves of the Mung bean plant. Freshly plucked human hairs were placed on a single slide. The follicle and shaft were covered with the same solution. Results: As a result of their intrinsic electron transport based metabolism these biologic entities emitted electromagnetic fields that were imaged by aggregated iron particles outlining the leaves or visualized as circulating aggregated iron particles around the hair follicles. Conclusions: This technique can provide a simplified imaging method to provide electromagnetic profiles for living systems in general.
