" .. Another hypothesis is that moderate magnetic fields change gene expression. Ob/Ob mice when treated with 0.5 T direct current electromagnetic fields were found to increase their activity, lose weight and fat in a 6 day period. Gene array analysis of human embryonic stem cells in another experiment of 0.23–0.28 T static magnetic fields was conducted. Up-regulation of genes for insulin factors genes, peroxisome proliferative activity receptor were increased, and calcium channel gene and other genes for mitochondrial ribosomal protein S, and uncoupling protein 2. Down-regulation of tumor necrosis factor alpha and interleukin 6 were demonstrated for this transformation. Forkhead transcription factors are also upregulated at 5 days. Accelerated liver detoxification by moderate magnetic therapy of obesogens that disrupt homeostasis of metabolism of lipids ultimately resulting in obesity is another hypothesis."
