Microorganisms in the human gut can affect immune-system cells. Gut bacterial strains have been discovered that boost immune cells that have cell-killing capacity and that can target cancer and protect against infection.

The bacteria that live in our bodies have a pivotal role in the maintenance of our health, and can influence a range of conditions, such as obesity and cancer1–6. Perhaps the most important role for the community of microorganisms that live in our gut — termed the microbiota, which include bacteria, fungi and archaea — is to aid immune-system development7. Writing in Nature, Tanoue et al.8 report the identification of 11 strains of bacteria that reside in the guts of some healthy humans and that can boost immune responses that fight infection and cancer.

A particularly potent type of immune cell that recognizes and kills infected and cancerous cells is the cytotoxic CD8+ T cell. These cells identify target cells through interactions between their T-cell receptor proteins (TCRs) and peptide fragments called antigens from the target cell. Harnessing an approach used previously9,10 to identify bacterial strains that can boost certain subsets of T cell, Tanoue and colleagues used mouse models in their search for bacteria that drive production of the subset of CD8+ T cells that produce a potent immunostimulatory protein called interferon-γ (IFN-γ) and are known as CD8+ IFN-γ+ T cells. They found that mice housed under normal laboratory conditions had this type of T cell in their colons, but that such cells were mainly absent in mice raised in a germ-free environment.

#125 EM Disaster Recovery Support Projects in 2017

The certified non-profit corporation, United Networks for Earth Environment (U-net) has been developing various EM disaster recovery support projects since the beginning the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, not only in Eastern Japan, but also where there was flood damage in various places, and after the Kumamoto Earthquake, and so on.

Among these, they are addressing radiation pollution control in Fukushima as their biggest issue. Last November 25, the 7th Environmental Forum, “EM Utsukushima Paradise 2017” was held. The following is a summary up to 20

Holding the 7th Environment Forum

The certified non-profit corporation, United Networks for Earth Environment (U-net)
Board Chairman, Teruo Higa

This Environmental Forum is held in order to help recover a beautiful Fukushima, “Utsukushima EM Paradise,” through the application of EM in Fukushima Prefecture to solve radioactive contamination in the wake of the damage caused by the March 11, 2011 disaster that occurred when the Eastern Japan Tokyo Electric Power Company’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant sustained an accident during the Eastern Japan earthquake. This year will be the seventh Forum.

Since the 1st Forum, the following has been confirmed and various applications are moving forward.

1. In farmland where organic material was used, creating conditions where EM could fully function, and where cultivation management was done to increase the population of EM, absorption of radioactive cesium by the crops was completely suppressed. At the same time, yield and quality of the crops also improved.

2. In dairy farming using EM, not only were all the sanitation issues related to barns resolved, but even if the cows were given contaminated grass from the area, the level of radioactive cesium in the milk was below 5 Becquerel (the standard in Japan calls for a level below 50 Bq), and the radioactivity levels of meadows sprayed with their manure (slurry) became lower, and it was confirmed that the absorption of radioactive cesium by pasture grass was suppressed.

3. If you continue to spray activated EM, without exception the radioactive contamination level will be lowered, and if it is sprayed when the soil is moist after rain, etc., it will be even more effective.
4. When you use EM or EM・X GOLD it is possible to completely prevent damage caused by exposure to ionizing radiation, and it is also possible to prevent internal exposure.

5. EM has a significant effect on the suppression of radioactive strontium absorption in crops, which is expected to be a problem in the future.

6. There is also a reduction in the amount of radiation several dozens of meters from areas that have been sprayed with EM.

7. In follow up experiments by the Belarus National Radiobiology Research Institute and EM Research Organization it became clear that radiation cesium significantly decreases even in containers.

8. In order to publicize to the world the tremendous effects of EM, the movie “SOSEI-Rejuvenation” was completed, and has been in theatrical release since last year and more and more people are learning that radiation countermeasures are possible using EM.

9. By adding seawater or a salt similar to seawater to activate EM, adding charcoal to EM mudballs, and creating EM barriers, markedly reduces radioactivity, farming without agricultural chemicals becomes easy, and the soil also becomes remarkably fertile.

10. With multifaceted applications of EM technology, it is possible to produce high-quality agricultural crops that are safe and excellent for one’s health, to implement unsurpassed measures against birds and wild animals, as well fundamental countermeasures against harmful rumors regarding radioactivity levels in crops.

Based on this reality, in order to broaden the acceptance of the use of EM to eliminate radioactivity, from last fiscal year we have been shifting our emphasis to the utilization of EM, focusing on producers, and to sales of the products by these producers, who have been steadily advancing down the path of independence through the utilization of EM technology.

Based on these achievements in Fukushima, it became possible to clarify the utilization of EM in terms of quantum mechanics, which is covered in the book I co-authored with Ms. Mori and Mr. Shiratori, Everything About Love and Microorganisms (published by Hikaru Land.) This book was compiled to provide creative information that can be freely utilized for the future use of EM, and it is my hope that it will help raise the EM capabilities of stakeholders.

Figure 1 shows the volunteers’ independent efforts to reduce radioactivity. The utilization of EM branches off from each group, has become more widespread, and steady results are being achieved. A part of the activities of currently done by each volunteer group is as shown in the photograph. At the Fukushima Forum, I received rice from the Kikuchi Farm (in the center of the photos) that has been cultivated with EM for over 25 years. The rice had the highest hado wave value among over ten samples of rice sent to me this year and I thought it convincingly showed the power of EM. I also got a handmade brochure so I will introduce it as is.

The principle of quantum mechanical function of EM is summarized in the Higa Theory that microorganisms undergo atomic conversion. Its ultimate form can be expressed thusly: “The most noble human noble thought (love) is a switch, stimulating the gravitator that revitalizing microorganisms like EM have; gravity acts as a universal superconducting element, and infinite energy can be obtained from gravitational waves that control all of the universe.”

The most basic application is to use seawater or the water equivalent, make good quality activated EM solution, make an energy field and barrier using charcoal and salt, and simply repeat over and over making thorough use of EM. From a quantum mechanics point of view, it is quality over quantity; if the quality is the same, the results will differ depending on the number of times you use it.

This number of times used is called quantum overlay effect. In other words, the number of times you carefully and wholeheartedly apply EM, is exactly recorded as is in the crops.

Mr. Tabata in Fukui Prefecture is a very notable person for having used EM for the first time in rice fields in Japan and for having contributed to the development of nature farming methods; the way he handles EM with such care was outstanding. The farmers who started to use EM later used a large amount of EM and attempted to outdo Mr. Tabata, but the hado wave value of his rice was always at the top, and no one was able to overtake it. Mr. Tabata lived for over 90 years and he was active his entire life. After that his son took over and he has been sending me rice every year. The hado wave value of his rice has increased year by year, reaching a level that no one can exceed.

However, I got Mr. Kikuchi’s rice for the first time this year and the hado wave of his rice was above the wave value of Mr. Tabata’s rice. Mr. Kikuchi started using EM five to 6 years later than Mr. Tabata, and his special care towards EM was basically the same as Mr. Tabata.

Mr. Kikuchi provided much valuable information at the study meeting on radiation contamination countermeasures in Fukushima, namely that the amount of radioactive cesium is extremely low in fields and rice fields where EM cultivation has been continued. The amount of radiation in left over potatoes put in a recycling bucket with EM ceramics decreased remarkably. Furthermore, the amount of radiation in the dried persimmons treated with activated EM has become significantly lower. In addition, I also received reports on various cases in which EM cultivated rice is able to resist disastrous weather.

Since EM has the power to make harmful energy such as radioactivity useful, I believe that the wave value of Mr. Kikuchi’s rice was enhanced through this power, putting it at the top. When I have the opportunity I would like to talk about the principle of quantum overlay effect, which is the essential part of EM utilization technology.

What was very clear this time is that the rice with wave values reaching the level of Mr. Tabata’s or Mr. Kikuchi’s is the best, most healthful rice, and even if only 1 to 3% of it is mixed in with ordinary rice it will become rice with a very high wave value. Therefore, I hope these results will be utilized in everyday use of rice, or in commercial use.

Greetings from Kikuchi Farm!
I have been using EM for almost 27 years. Since I heard that vitamins and minerals in vegetables are steadily decreasing due to the use of chemical fertilizers, I wanted to provide safe and nutritious food for our families. Thus, I began using organic fertilizer mixed with EM (effective microorganisms) in rice bran, oil cake and fish cakes.

Thanks to EM, even with the bad weather this year, we had fine ears of rice. I have been implementing what I have learned. If you like the rice, we can take some limited number of orders.

Bacterial communities use sophisticated strategy to communicate over long distances

It’s the way we end up with a fresh cup of coffee from a clump of beans. It’s how ocean oil rigs extract petroleum from dense rock formations beneath the seafloor. It even helps explain how forest fires spread.

A theory known as “percolation” is now helping microbiologists at the University of California San Diego explain how communities of bacteria can effectively relay signals across long distances. Once regarded as a simple cluster of microorganisms, communities of bacteria—also called “biofilms”—have been found to utilize ion channels for electrochemical communication that helps the community thrive and survive threats, such as chemical attacks from antibiotics.

The findings, led by Joseph Larkin and senior author Gürol Süel of UC San Diego, are published July 25 in the journal Cell Systems.

Biofilm communities inhabit locations all around us, from soil to drain pipes to the surface of our teeth. Cells at the edge of these communities tend to grow more robustly than their interior counterparts because they have access to more nutrients. To keep this edge growth in check and ensure the entire community is fit and balanced, the “hungry” members of the biofilm interior send electrochemical signals to members at the exterior. These signals halt consumption at the edge, allowing nutrients to pass through to the interior cells to avoid starvation.

“This keeps the interior fed well enough and if a chemical attack comes and takes out some of the exterior cells, then the protected interior is able to continue and the whole population can survive,” said Larkin, a UC San Diego Biological Sciences postdoctoral scholar. “It is essential that the electrochemical signal be consistently transmitted all the way to the biofilm edge because that is the place where the growth must be stopped for the community to reap the most benefit from signaling.”

In approaching their new study, the researchers sought to explain how  are able to propagate these electrochemical communication signals. Unlike neurons that have designated structures to relay electrochemical signals known as axons, bacterial communities lack such sophisticated structures. This provoked the question of how bacteria could relay signals so effectively over long distances within the community.

After sifting through vast amounts of bacterial data, the UC San Diego researchers began collaborating with Purdue University’s Andrew Mugler and Xiaoling Zhai, who proposed the idea that percolation theory could explain how bacterial communities may be propagating signals from cell to cell.

Percolation theory has been around since the 1950s and has helped physicists describe how signals are transmitted across a medium or network of diverse components. In a coffee maker, hot water percolates through individual coffee grounds into a carafe. In the oil industry, drillers maximize their yield by extracting petroleum from percolated sands, where the bedrock is porous enough to allow oil to flow over a large area.

In a community of bacteria, signals pass from cell to cell in a connected path over a distance of hundreds of cells. Using fluorescence microscopes, the researchers were able to track individual cells that were “firing” (transmitting a signal). The scientists found that the fraction of firing cells and their distribution in space precisely matched theoretical predictions of the onset of percolation. In other words, the bacterial community had a fraction of firing cells that was precisely at the tipping point between having no connectivity and full connectivity among , also known as a critical phase transition point.

“We’re all familiar with how we make coffee through percolation and it’s an interesting twist that bacteria appear to use the same concept to accomplish the very complicated task of efficiently relaying an electrochemical signal over very  from cell to cell,” said Süel.

“It’s interesting that these bacteria, which are so-called simple, single-cell organisms, are using a fairly sophisticated strategy to solve this community-level problem,” said Larkin. “It’s sophisticated enough that we humans are using it to extract oil, for example.”
