EMF produces stress reaction in DNA
In a 22 page report from BioIniative.Org, 64 studies point to the role of EMF radiation in prolonged cellular stress and subsequent DNA damage. The report is called; "Evidence for Stress Response: EMF-DNA Interaction by Dr. Martin Blank. Dr. Blank (1), a cellular biophysicist, summarized research, including some of his own studies, that came to a rather stunning conclusion that EMF eventually can create a form of DNA that damages your cells instead of regulating your biology.
The cellular stress from EMF radiation can eventually trigger heat shock proteins (HSP) to release in your body. These HSP's trigger the formation of a new protein called a macromolecue, a type of DNA. These macromolecures/DNA are associated with inflammatory, autoimmune, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative disorders. Damaged DNA is a principle cause of cancer.
The double-helix structure of DNA makes it an antenna for EMF radiation
Proteins make up about half the dry weight of a cell. Instead of just heat shock proteins being created, the body is creating an entirely new protein they call a stress protein. Heat shock proteins are created by damaged DNA, also called macromolecules. Until EMF radiation came along, an invader would have to get through several layers of tissue to get to the DNA. This rarely occured.
EMF is a frequency that can bypass your usual tissue defense mechanism. Thus, the double-helix structure of DNA, makes it an antenna for EMF radiation. Because of its coiled pattern, DNA is able to conduct electrons. This provices a pathway for EMF to create molecular damage (uncoupling) in our DNA, perhaps only slightly changing it each time, but the cumulative effect is concerning.

Cancers are believed to be the long term result of DNA errors.
Living cells are constantly dividing, creating new proteins and DNA. Small errors can be fixed by our bodies by simply causing cell death (of the bad cell), but if the error rate continues to grow, eventually mutations occur which alter the healthy balance in the body. These mutations can even inactivate tumor-suppressing genes, thus allowing for tumor growth.
