Notes on EMF affecting melatonin via nitric oxide
I think this is relevant.
Here are some bits on why nitric oxide has a bearing on this. Look at the attached abstracts and you can see that if EMF disrupts nitric oxide (as I think is clearly suggested) it can easily lead to all melatonin-suppression-related effects.
Not a definitive case, but very interesting indeed. Tryptophan and serotonin of course are components of melatonin synthesis.
Is melatonin the hormonal missing link between magnetic field effects and human diseases?

As I look at this chart, I am reminded of the rare immune deficiencies in my two grandsons. Not only do newborns [apparently] produce little melatonin, but what they did produce was limited greatly by the fact they both were sleeping close to walls opposite electric meters ("powerwalls").
It is little wonder that more and more children are being diagnosed with autism considering the diversity of the monitors that are available on today's market. We are hearing reports of autism-like diagnoses occuring with increasing frequency between the ages of two and four years.
I met a fellow this morning who was holding an infant a little over two weeks old. The tiny female had hiccups the whole time we spoke. I asked her dad if there is anything electrical in her bedroom and he responded, "there is a monitor under her crib.....!!!" There is a strong connection between immune function and one's gastrointestinal system. The fellow said, "I am moving the monitor today..."
I recall the Immunologist for my grandsons saying "...there is a possibility immune function may decline again around puberty." He made no mention of "melatonin" but the chart below indicates "puberty occurs as melatonin levels begin to decline....." Overall IGG's did start to decline in one of my grandsons around age 16. He has since that time unplugged all electrical equipment in his bedroom and has once again "stabilized."
Looking at melatonin levels around age 50 and later, this also correlates with Alzheimers-like observations in my husband, Bud. As I have reported, he has improved since moving his electric clock radio off his nightstand and taking melatonin every night before going to bed. Moving his electric clock radio apparently increased whatever amount of natural melatonin was still being produced and, of apparently, consuming the supplement fortified the beneficial effects.

Dear Ms. Mueller: Thank you for your email to the Alzheimer’s Association regarding prevention trials and information on genes and melatonin. The Association as you know, funds much basic science research including areas of genetic links to AD and melatonin. The Association is also currently working on a prevention initiative.
The Association funds new ideas regarding prevention, disease modification, symptomatic relief and overall education and advocacy through our grant funding mechanism. You can find information on our grant system at the following url: http://www.alz.org/professionals_and_researchers_funding_and_grants.asp
If you are not a researcher, then what I would suggest is that you talk to researchers about your ideas and encourage them to apply for funding. Only through extensive research and replication do compounds and or treatments come to be proven safe and effective.
