There is a strong correlation between the advent of electricity, and modern chronic disease. It is a fascinating hypothesis which, on further examination, gets stronger and stronger.
“The slow spread of residential electrification in the US in the first half of the 20th century from urban to rural areas resulted by 1940 in two large populations; urban populations, with nearly complete electrification and rural populations exposed to varying levels of electrification depending on the progress of electrification in their state. It took until 1956 for US farms to reach urban and rural non-farm electrification levels. Both populations were covered by the US vital registration system. US vital statistics tabulations and census records for 1920–1960, and historical US vital statistics documents were examined. Residential electrification data was available in the US census of population for 1930, 1940 and 1950. Crude urban and rural death rates were calculated, and death rates by state were correlated with electrification rates by state for urban and rural areas for 1940 white resident deaths. Urban death rates were much higher than rural rates for cardiovascular diseases, malignant diseases, diabetes and suicide in 1940. Rural death rates were significantly correlated with level of residential electric service by state for most causes examined. I hypothesize that the 20th century epidemic of the so called diseases of civilization including cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes and suicide was caused by electrification not by lifestyle. A large proportion of these diseases may therefore be preventable.”

The title of the paper provides gives a clear synopsis – Exposure to a 50 Hz electromagnetic field induces activation of the Epstein-Barr virus genome in latently infected human lymphoid cells.
What does it mean to “activate” a virus?
Keep in mind that a virus is not alive. It is just a string of RNA/DNA surrounded by a protein shell. It contains no reproductive system, they can’t make their own energy, and they don’t respond to stimuli. What the researchers mean by “activate” is to cause the virus to be excreted, or expressed, by the living cell.
Controversially – and I would say, effectively – it is argued that a virus is similar to a solvent that is excreted by the cell to remove debris and toxins. Where does this debris or toxin that needs excreting from the living cell come from? It is the contention of medics and researchers such as Dr. Tom Cowan and Dr. Andrew Kaufman that these toxins are the result of external influences such as EMFs.
Not only does the above linked paper show that EMFs can activate virus expression, but that the DNA of living beings – including ours – can be modulated, remotely.
“This finding provides evidence that DNA can be modulated by a magnetic field.”
If you regularly have blocked up sinuses I want to bring two factors to your attention:
Vitamin A deficiency
Allergies or Mould
Regarding mould, new groundbreaking research has shown that mould becomes many times more toxic in the presence of EMFs. Read on…
Vitamin A Deficiency
Dr. Berg says that a vitamin A deficiency, which can also/alternatively be a bile deficiency, can be an issue for the sinuses. Vitamin A is fat-soluble and bile is needed to break down fats. Hence the vitamin A deficiency could be a lack of bile rather than a lack of vitamin A.
Cod liver oil is a great source of vitamin A because it also contains omega fatty acids and natural occurring vitamin D.
Dr Berg also recommends a protein enzyme to dissolve build up of mucus.
Blocked sinuses could an environmental bio-toxin such as mould, or an allergy such as a reaction to animals, or a food allergy. Some things to consider:
cutting out all grains and dairy for a month
kimchi or lactobacillus sakei supplement to address bacteria imbalance (for the science behind lactobacillus sakei see this page). Note – after further research it seems likely that the specific source of this beneficial bacteria might be the garlic that’s in the kimchi. So fermented garlic (at between 14 and 21 days) is particularly recommended for this condition.
remove mould from the home environment
Mould issues can be aggravated by electromagnetic fields which have been shown to cause mould to be more ‘aggressive’. For a deeper look at this topic see Do EMFs-increase-mould-toxicity?, but here’s a few suggestions:
switch off the house AC power to the sleeping area at night, or
take action to deactivate live wires in floor space and wall space in the sleeping area
To thin down sinus mucus (doesn’t cure root cause) I would take fenugreek, and I would try acupressure of the 2nd vertebrae.
