The fundamental mechanisms and consequences underlining the interchange of electromagnetic forces (EMFs) within a living organism have received little attention. In this manuscript we are presenting for the first time evidence of EMFs emissions attributed to the enzyme catalase, either alone or associated with H2O2 breakdown in oxidation–reduction (Redox) reactions during cellular respiration. Using the human hair follicle as sentinels, in vitro exposure of freshly plucked ex vivo human peri-umbilical hairs were indirectly exposed through a glass barrier to powder catalase and continuous (Redox) reactions triggered in a processed meat sample. In both instances EMFs were detected and shown causing metabolic changes in the human hair as well as a disruption of the crystallization process of a Prussian Blue- iron nanoparticles solution (PBS Fe 2K). We hypothesize that due to the presence of chronic internally emitted EMFs during cell respiration, there exists a propitious niche for cellular genetic changes that could lead to DNA damage and its consequences. Cellular respiration is essential for survival and Redox reactions are viewed also as an essential friend that neutralizes toxic substances. We hypothesize that it could it also be a foe by its intrinsic continuous EMFs emissions.
