QiOne® 2 Pro is a specific device which creates a static field that stimulates water molecules to undergo a transition into the coherent state. Since our body consists of about 70 to 85% of water (depending on age), this coherent state of the water molecules might increase the cellular resistance against exogenous reliabilities such as electromagnetic fields. In this study, the protective effect of QiOne® 2 Pro against mobile phone radiation was examined by using the cultured intestinal epithelial cells. Unprotected cells and untreated control cells served as point of reference. The cell regeneration process as well as the integrity of the intestinal epithelial barrier was investigated by measuring the transepithelial electrical resistance.
Mobile phone radiation caused a reduced cell regenerative activity by approximately 60%, whereas the values were about 15% for QiOne® 2 Pro protected cells and untreated controls, respectively. Moreover, mobile phone radiation caused a rupture on the epithelial barrier in unprotected cells by cell death caused due to the oxidative stress with a complete loss of morphological integrity on the barrier. In contrast, untreated controls and QiOne® 2 Pro protected cells did not show any morphological change on the cell layers with an epithelial barrier of a 10-fold higher transepithelial electrical resistance than the unprotected cells.
Overall the results clearly demonstrate the sensitivity of intestinal barrier against oxidative stress generated by mobile phone radiation. In addition, the results also show that the QiOne® 2 Pro device is able to reduce unwanted cellular effects of mobile phone radiation.
