The influence of electromagnetic fields on the proliferation of Bacillus subtilis


B.P. Shipun*

This study illustrates the fluctuations in microbial population growth when subjected to nutrient media cultivated with water exposed to a low-power electromagnetic field. We employed this field-treated water to formulate both liquid and solid culture mediums for the propagation of Bacillus subtilis bacteria. The electromagnetic field treatment encompassed various frequencies ranging from 30 to 230 MHz. Across all instances, a notable inhibition of bacterial vitality was observed when using water exposed to the electromagnetic field. This observed phenomenon is attributed to alterations in ion hydration sizes resulting from field exposure, subsequently affecting their involvement in membrane processes.
