Sound has an effect on plants and on the human physiology. Cells vibrate dynamically and may transmit information via harmonic wave motions. This study compared the effects of "primordial sounds" (Sama Veda, from the Maharishi Ayurvedaa system of natural health care), or hard rock music (AC/DC, "Back in Black"), and no sound on the growth of cells in culture. Five human tumor cell lines (lung, colon, brain, breast, and skin) and one normal cell line (fibroblasts) were tested in triplicate for each of an average of four experiments. The recordings of Sama Veda and Back in Black were normalized to maintain the same maximum amplitudes, with no significant effect on the results. Primordial sound significantly decreased the average growth across cell lines (p=0.005, ANOVA). In the presence of hard rock music, growth of cells was significantly increased (p=0.03), but the effect was not consistent. We conclude that sound has an effect on the growth of neoplastic and normal human cells in vitro.
