Might the effects of electomagnetic radiation from the incubators
reported in this study (1) have been due to an improvement in energy
supply/demand balance in cells? In other words might there be untapped
therapeutic potential in improving energy supply/balance in patients by
converting the energy within electromagnetic waves into ATP that can be
used by the body?

The beneficial effects of phototherapy in neonatal jaundice, usually
ascribed to an effect upon bilirubin per se, is well established. The
beneficial effects might also be wholly or partly due to positive effects
upon the ATP content in and deformability of erythrocytes.
It has been reported that, "The protective effect of the low power
helium-neon (He-Ne) laser against the damage of human erythrocytes in
whole blood [has been].. examined in a perfusion model using an artificial
heart-lung machine...Preserved human whole blood was diluted and perfused
in 2 closed circuits with a double roller pump. The laser irradiated one
of the circuits (laser group), and none the other (control group). In the
laser group, erythrocyte deformability and erythrocyte adenosine
triphosphate (ATP) levels were significantly higher, and free hemoglobin
levels were significantly lower than those in the control group"(2).
