Table 3 Immune functions in peripheral leukocytes before (T0) and after 2 months (T2) in “topper” group. This group of volunteers slept on beds made of non-natural materials but with a topper including the system to avoid EMFs. Each value is the mean ± standard deviation of the data obtained from 12 volunteers: 10 women and 2 men. C.I.: chemotaxis indx; c.p.m.: counts per minute; N.S: statistically non-significant; . *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 respect to T0

From: The use of a bed with an insulating system of electromagnetic fields improves immune function, redox and inflammatory states, and decrease the rate of aging
