We demonstrate that the lifespan of Drosophila melanogaster population is controllable by a combination of external three-dimensional oscillating low-frequency electric and magnetic fields (3D OLFEMFs). The lifespan was decreased or increased in dependence of the parameters of the external 3D OLFEMFs. We propose that metabolic processes in D. melanogaster's body are either accelerated (in the case of reduced lifespan) or slowed down (in the case of increased lifespan) in function of 3D OLFEMFs that induce vibrational motions on sub-cellular and larger scales.

We report that the duration of the egg-to-imago development period of the Drosophila melanogaster, and the imago longevity, are both controllable by combinations of external 3-dimensional (3D) low-frequency electric and magnetic fields (LFEMFs). Both these periods may be reduced or increased by applying an appropriate configuration of external 3D LFEMFs. We report that the longevity of D. Read More

Oscillating Low Frequency Electro-Magnetic Fields action on eye retina restoration in Rattus Norvegicus was studied in the present work. A beneficial effect of 3-Dimention Oscillating Low Frequency Electro-Magnetic Field was found for the specific values of Electro-Magnetic Field parameters. We found that eye retina damaged by radiation of the fundamental frequency harmonic of a YAG laser has recovered earlier and rehabilitated to the original 3D-state in the presence of OLFEMF, with the parameters listed below in the text.

Drosophila melanogaster strains defective in repair, antioxidant defense, and apoptosis displayed a higher aging rate than the wild-type strains when unexposed to ionizing radiation. Irradiation changed the lifespan depending on the genotype. The lifespan and the functional (neuromuscular) activity, which reflects the "life quality", changed in the same direction. Read More
