Low frequency electromagnetic waves as a supplemental energy source to sustain microbial growth?
The dynamic characteristics of populations of heterotrophic microorganisms Escherichia coli incubated in a medium devoid of organic substrate were studied. It was found that the population dynamics is related to the electromagnetic environment. A mathematical and physical models of cell multiplication in a medium free of organic substrate were constructed. In these models the natural electromagnetic background near the Earth surface serves as a source of free energy.
