The human body’s Photo-biology

Photobiology is a term used broadly to include all biological phenomena involving “Non-ionizing radiation”. Non-ionizing radiations are divided into:

1. Infra-red radiation: it has a wavelength between (1000-800 nm

2. Visible light: it has a wavelength between (800-400 nm); it can be subdivided into: Red (750-625 nm); Orange (630- 590 nm); Yellow (590-560 nm); Green (560-490 nm); Blue (490-450 nm); Indigo (450-400 nm); and Violet (450-375 nm)

3. Ultraviolet radiation: it has a wavelength between (< 400 nm); it can be subdivided into: UV-A (Long UV): (400-315 nm); UV-B (Near UV): (315-280 nm); UV-C (Middle UV): (280-100 nm)

Living cells that absorb light are known as “Chromophores”, and these are molecules that can absorb the non-ionizing photons and capturing their energy using it in chemical reactions. Examples of chromophores include: Chlorophyll, Hemoglobin, Porphyrine, Billirubin, Cytochromes, Catalases, and Melatonin

Most of these molecules when absorb light they transform into an electronic “Higher-energy state” molecules compared to their normal resting state, known as the “Singlet state”. Chromophores therefore are known as “Photosensitizers” (They sense the light), and the whole process of absorbing light and transforming into higher energy state molecule is known as “Photosensitization” 

Photons that are delivered to a living tissue have two fates: to be absorbed or scattered. Absorbed photon will result in one of three reactions:

1. Internal conversion: the absorbing molecule transform from stable to singlet state (A high energy molecular state), and the energy is then transformed into a vibrational energy resulting in “Heat”    

2. Fluorescence: the photon absorbed is re-emitted as a weaker photon and the difference in energy is converted to vibrational energy resulting in “Heat”  

3. Molecular activation: when a photon is absorbed by a molecule, its electrons will change position between the orbits at the atomic level, resulting in high energy state known as “Singlet state”. This molecular excited singlet state behaves differently than the same molecule in its normal state, and can cause “Electron transfer” to its neighbor molecule, resulting in tissue excitation. When this occurs in the mitochondria (Via cytochrome oxidase c), the electron transport chain reaction is activated 10 times its normal rate, resulting in more ATP production  

The biophoton theory

This theory states that human cellular interactions are driven by “Bio-photons”, also known as “Ultra-weak photon emission”, according to Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp. A “Bio-photon” is a photon of light emitted from a biological system during chemical reactions. These biophotons are photons with high electromagnetic frequencies that fall within the “Ultraviolet light” spectrum, which cannot be seen by the naked eye. They are emitted continuously from all living tissues

All living cells are able to “Absorb” light energy by their DNA, and “Re-emitting” the absorbed light energy as biophotons (Fritz-Albert Popp theory). The human DNA emits about 90% of the cellular light (Biophotons), and acts as a photonic transmitter, receiver (e.g., light therapy), and storage device for biophotonic and other electromagnetic information. The light emitted from the human DNA is “Coherent”, which is interestingly, similar to “Laser”, which is also a “Coherent light

Biophotons are emitted when transition between “Excited state” (High energy) and “Basal state” (Lower energy) occurs (e.g., nerve excitation and relaxation). One explanation of biophotons is that they are an expression of the “functional state” of the living organism

According to biophoton theory, light is stored in the cells of the organism –more precisely, in the DNA molecules of the nuclei - and a dynamic web of light constantly released and absorbed by the DNA may connect cell organelles, cells, tissues, and organs within the body and serve as the organism’s main communication network and as the principal regulating instance of all life processes. Therefore, light is the most important environmental input, after food, in controlling bodily function. Also, Raymond Peat constantly teaches that “Dark” is a stressful situation for human’s metabolism because low exposure to light inhibits cytochrome c oxidase activity in the mitochondria  

Biophotons were first noticed by the Russian doctor Alexander Gruwitsch (1922), who stated that during enzymatic reactions and mitosis an invisible, coherent light wave in a UV frequency is emitted from living cells (Animals and plants); he called this photon emission “Biophotons”. He found out that these photons passes through quartz glass, but blocked by ordinary glass, so he concluded that these photons are in the “Ultra-violet” range

The word “Coherent” means that the emitted biophotons are ordered and NOT randomly emitted like normal light photons. Because of their coherency, they can be blend together to form a coherent light (e.g., biological laser light), in the spectrum of UV-light (UV-A & UV-C light; 200-800 nm

Cancer cells, for example, have low photon emission compared to normal cells, because their excitation is low due to lack of energy. Cancer cells self-destruct within minutes after exposure to strong intense light (e.g., sun light) because of the formation of active oxygen molecules (e.g., singlet oxygen), which destroys cancer cells. This is the main idea behind cancer therapies like “Photodynamic therapy

Some cancer therapies, like “Johanna Budwig diet”, uses essential fatty acids (Omega-3 & omega-6) to treat cancer because essential fatty oils contain electron-rich states within them due to the energy trapped from sunlight; however, Raymond peat teaches that essential oils feed cancer cells because cancer cells use them to make their own lipids, and they should be discarded

A short-term (15-minute per day) sunlight baths with bare skin are revitalizing. There is now a scientific reason for solar phototherapy, as they allow the bodily cells to store light energy sufficient to recharge the biophoton batteries in the DNA

The Biological Water-Solar Energy Batteries

Because up to 70% of the human body is water, it is important to understand the relation between light and water. Water is “Light sensitive” liquid. According to prof. Gerald Pollack, water acts as a “Battery”. When water is exposed to light, it harness the light energy and ionized producing a “4th phase of water”, known as “Exclusion zone - EZ” In this zone, water is “Re-structured” magnetically to produce a “Crystalline lattice” that has a positive (Hydrogen molecules) and negative (Hydroxyl molecules) ends, with an electrical potential. This is the same principle as “Water electrolysis

The light that produces maximum effect in water is “Sun light”. Light (Sunlight actually) can be considered as a “Nutrient”. According to prof. Gerald Pollack, Sunlight + Water = Fuel energy!

Dr. Daniel Nocera attempts to produce energy from water. In Nocera's scenario, sunlight would split water to produce versatile, easy-to-store hydrogen fuel that could later be burned in an internal-combustion generator or recombined with oxygen in a fuel cell

The Human Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis is a chemical process carried by plants and cyanobacteria in oceans. In this process, carbon dioxide (CO2) is reduced to carbon molecules (e.g., carbohydrates) by splitting water into protons and oxygen, using its electrons to reduce CO2. The energy for splitting water comes from “Sunlight”, which is trapped first by “Pigments” (e.g., Chlorophylls & Carotenoids)

Like plants, human cells are able to harness light and split water in its cells releasing: hydrogen, oxygen, and 4 electrons. The pigments used are (Melanin & Hemoglobin). Because of its black pigment, melanin absorbs all wavelengths of light spectrum, from infrared to ultraviolet. This was first reported from the “The Human Photosynthesis Study Group” in Mexico (1990), under the supervision of Dr. Herrara.

The Human Photosynthesis Study Center claim that up to one third (33%) of the energy available to a human being is produced by melanin absorbing electromagnetic radiation, splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen to produce energy; the main source of energy of the human body is water NOT food!!! In other words: the main source of energy of the central nervous system is the water located in the ventricles and subarachnoid space, and NOT through the blood vessels. Food is source of body building-blocks, while the energy is taken from water
