Without plants we would die. They are solely responsible for converting sunlight into sugars, the basis for the beginning of the food chain. We rely on them to purify our air and enrich it with oxygen as well as absorbing carbodioxide from the atmosphere. The relationship between humans and plants is wonderfully interwoven as can be seen by the close symmetry between chlorophyll and haemoglobin.

The green molecule is the chlorophyll  with magnesium its central atom and the haemoglobin with iron as its central atom.



When looking at the relationship between man and plants it pays to step into the secret life of cells, particularly that of the main difference between the cell structure of the plant and that animal kingdom ie that of the chlorophyll molecule and that of the haemoglobin molecule that makes up blood. Cells between plants and mammals differ in many ways – from the structure of the cell wall,  to the functions they perform, apart form the obvious ie why mammals move and plants don’t.

At the molecular level we can see the atoms that make them up. So in each molecule you will see hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon atoms as well as two elements (atoms) of interest and they are magnesium and iron. How do they get there? Well the inorganic part of soil provides these elements. Not as individual atoms but as compounds or salts  in solution. More on this later when we talk about magnesium. Now the part of interest now is quantum biology which looks at the atomic level and this will lead onto the potential effects that EMF may have on all life forms.

An Introduction to Quantum Biology

  1. There is an  interdependence between mammals and plants as well as atmospheric oxygen and carbon dioxide.
  2. This provides us to clues as to why we should be eating plant matter from our immediate environment to be consumed in season. Why? Because plants manufacture carbohydrates in varying light waves in the spectrum and under varying day lengths and angles of the sun’s rays. Sunlight is made up of subatomic particles called photons
  3. Photons are essentially light energy and as such they are a key component in photosynthesis. Chlorophyll captures photons in their photovoltaic chloroplasts, to create chemical molecules that convert carbon dioxide into food.
  4. Blue is at the high-energy end of the spectrum, so light of this wavelength is explains the absorption peak in the blue.
  5. Red wavelengths are lower in energy and only boost the electron to a lower energy level.. Photons have momentum and energy but no mass. Now that the dual nature of light as “both a particle and a wave” as was described by Einstein who believed light is a particle (photon) and the flow of photons is a wave.
  6. Healthy vegetation absorbs blue- and red-light energy to fuel photosynthesis and create chlorophyll. A plant with more chlorophyll will reflect more near-infrared energy than an unhealthy plant.
  7. Humans also emit electromagnetic radiation, called thermal radiation in the infrared region. (knowledge of this may unlock keys to cancer treatment.)
  8. Mammals, humans plants, bacteria and fungi included operate under set circadian rhythms and plants under set hours of diurnalism   These 24-hour rhythms are driven by a circadian clock, and they have been widely observed in plants, animals, fungi, and cyanobacteria. It is important that human food matches these diurnal patterns.
  9. The basic structure of a chlorophyll molecule is a porphyrin ring, co-ordinated to a central atom. This is very similar in structure to the heme atom found in hemoglobin, except that in heme the central atom is iron, whereas in chlorophyll it is magnesium.\
  10. The “heme” molecule that transports iron (and oxygen) in our blood.
  11. Heme molecule is reactive as shown in its response to carbon monoxide which is an aggressive molecule and has a greater affinity to haemoglobin than oxygen does It displaces oxygen and quickly binds, so very little oxygen is transported through the body cells.

So you see we live in a delicate balance between light, electromagnetic forces, gravity, molecules that capture light and those that transport life giving oxygen, carbon- dioxide  and water.  This summary is presented to provide an overview without preference for any diet that may or may not exclude all animal products, it is merely the overview that provides a picture of the incredible interdependence between plants and mammals.


This relationship intimate relationship man has with plants is touched on in Genisis 1: 29 30  “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.”
