Negative Electric Ions have excellent effects on the body’s fluids, cells and nerves. This not only improves the function of the internal organs, functions of the tissue are regulated, as well as, autonomic nerves. There are many sources of Negative Electric Ions in Mother Nature. For instance, in forests, near the waterfalls, or hot mineral springs.
While dry weather and carpet-scuffing will charge up your body, the source of some human-body sparking is a mystery. There are reports of rare people, "Electric Humans," who spontaneously develop high voltage on their bodies and who suffer the continuous problem of "static" sparks. Their sparking occurs regardless of footwear, clothing, humidity, or even motion! Electric humans are forever getting zapped whenever they touch other people, or when they touch large metal objects. For the rest of us, "static sparks" can only occur when humidity is very low, and we walk across certain carpets, or when we wiggle around while sitting upon certain car seats or chairs. And for the rest of us, the problem vanishes when the humidity is high, or when we go barefoot or avoid wool or nylon sweaters/pants, avoid plastic seats, etc.
But the bodies of "Electric Humans" are different, and seem to become electrified all the time, all by themselves, without involving the friction or the contact/separation of differing surfaces.
R.A. Ford mentions two cases of Electric Humans in chapter 13 of his book HOMEMADE LIGHTNING (1991 Tab Books). In one case from 1837 a woman could repeatedly jump sparks 1-1/2" long to a large smooth metal object while she stood unmoving on a thick carpet, or she could continuously create 1/16" sparks much faster (once per second.) Another case took place in 1920, when prison inmates in upstate New York suffering from Botulin food poisoning were found to be "electrified." They were able to attract paper, create sparks, etc., even when partially submerged in a bathtub. (Obviously the 1920s bathtub must not have been attached to grounded pipes, otherwise the excess charge would have vanished instantly.)
In modern times an Electric Human would have additional problems besides irritating sparks. Computers, stereo equipment, digital watches, etc., are easily damaged by high voltage and spark discharges. All sorts of electronic appliances would not survive very long under the electrostatic barrage. An electric human would be advized to buy mechanical watches, and to avoid buying any appliance which contains a microprocessor.
Unfortunately, scientific skepticism is currently at an all time high, so if a person with this sparking problem was to seek help, they would probably be ridiculed and their sanity questioned! Scientists don't believe in "electric people." Reputable scientists "know" that Electric Humans are mere superstition and cannot exist. Therefor anyone claiming to have this problem is irrational, perhaps deranged! At least the internet is there, giving opportunity for 'charged humans' to tell their stories.
What could cause the "Electric Human" problem? First, shoe sole material and clothing material needs to be eliminated as a possible cause. Maybe you aren't an "electric human" at all. Maybe you simply have electric shoes! If sparks are ALWAYS a problem, regardless of wearing various conductive clothing (cotton,) or various shoe soles (leather, metal foil, etc.), then perhaps the problem isn't from "frictional" charging, and it's something mysterious.
In order to create a static electric imbalance on our bodies other than through "contact electrification" or "frictional" methods, we would have to be sending out ELECTRICALLY CHARGED AIR (and so our bodies would take on an opposite charge.) Perhaps the skin does this somehow. Or maybe the membranes of our lungs can somehow emit air which is electrically non-neutral.
If a person were to constantly be breathing out negative ions (charged air molecules), then unless their body was electrically grounded to the earth, they would rapidly accumulate strong a positive charge-imbalance on their body; an imbalance which is equal and opposite to the charged air being breathed out. But why would our lungs be producing electrified air? One possibility: when microscopic bubbles burst, the natural surface-charge of the water will cause the spray of tiny droplets to have a negative charge. If the liquid on the inner surface of alveoli in our lungs should be full of micro-bubbles, then our lungs might become VandeGraaff generators.
Another possibility: certain viruses grow outwards from cells using long filaments. Smallpox does this. If you catch a virus which spreads through the air because it launches viral "spores" from your lungs, those spores might carry enough of an electric charge that they will stick to any surfaces that they encounter (such as other nearby humans.) Evolution might favor such a capability. But the spores would also act as charged air, and whenever you breathed outwards, your body would aquire an increasing opposite charge. In other words, the "electric human syndrome" might be caused by viruses, it might be an actual static electricity disease that you could catch from another "electric human!" Think about it: cold viruses spread themselves by causing people to cough and sneeze. The "electric human" virus would spread itself by causing people to breath out virus-laden air (and the annoyance of the electric charging would just be a side-effect.) Hmmmm, maybe those prisoners in 1930 didn't actually have Botulin poisoning, maybe they had some other ...illness.
Another, more exotic possibility: maybe it's not static. Maybe it's something else, Torsion Fields for example. The Russians believe that Torsion Fields explain telepathy, psychokinesis, hands-on healing, and many other "paranormal" phenomena. If the human aura exists, then Torsion Physics might explain it, and the "electric human" effect might come about because of a super-strong torsion effect which surrounds a particular person.
NOTE: Exploding Light Bulbs! Here's an interesting bit of science trivia. When incandescent light bulbs get old and weak, sometimes they explode. This isn't an Unusual Phenomenon. Instead, it's caused by an electric arc inside the bulb. When the light bulb filament breaks in half inside the bulb, sometimes the two ends are close together. Sometimes a powerful electric arc leaps between the tungsten wires. When this happens, the light changes color. It becomes brighter, and much more white. But the bulb can't put out more than normal wattage, right? WRONG. If the filament happens to be rotated vertical inside the bulb, the electric arc can rise like a flame. It can skip around the filament and leap between the two filament-support wires. When this happens the bulb can put out up to 1400 watts! It glows intense blue white for an instant. But then the pressure of the hot gas inside the bulb causes the bulb to pop. BANG! Glass fragments all over your carpet! So, if you have an old incandescent bulb which is near the end of its life, and an "electric human" pushes it over the edge, it may just go dark. Or rarely, it may suddenly flash bright blue-white like an electric welder. Then go POW!
NOTE2: In private communications M. Foster mentioned that if you blast a hair dryer through a PVC pipe after first wetting the inner surface of the pipe, the pipe becomes highly electrified. The cause is unknown, but it might involve the bursting of microbubbles (which are known to launch negative water droplets into the air.) This might indicate a mechanism whereby human bodies can becomes mysteriously electrified WITHOUT scuffing any shoe soles on carpet. If the wetted PVC pipe is replaced by human lungs, and if the hair dryer is replaced by the act of breathing, we have an analogy for the infamous "electric human." But do the surfaces inside human lungs spew out droplets of water? We're not talking about condensation here; the wet surfaces would have to eject droplets. (Maybe they do, since doctors find that the air coming from the mouths of victims of chicken pox and other diseases can infect others.)
