Poor memory used to be an old peoples thing. Not anymore. Forgetfulness seems to be the norm rather than the exception for all age groups nowadays. Is it because life is so busy that our brains don’t retain and remember? Maybe. But all the EMF radiation thrown at us from all directions is more likely the cause.
Let’s look at this realistically – if we are living in an Electromagnetic soup mix which our bodies, or more accurately our immune systems are battling, our personal energetic frequencies being jammed by and some of our glands being interfered with, isn’t it blatantly clear that our brains are going to malfunction to some extent. Memory loss, concentration difficulties, learning difficulties, even Alzheimer’s are the result.
Surely our common sense tells us that our brains and bodies can’t cope with this cacophony of EMF radiation, and science is backing us up with more and more research.
The Greek scientific study led by Adamantia Fragopoulou and Lukas Margaritis shows important protein changes in the brain of animals following exposure of the whole body to RF electromagnetic fields, similar to the kind of microwave radiation emitted from cell phones, portable phones, Wi-Fi and wireless computer equipment. The study, “Brain proteome response following whole body exposure of mice to mobile phone or wireless DECT base radiation”, was published in Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine.
The study simulated 3 hours of cell phone exposure over eight months, 8 hours of DECT portable phone exposure over eight months, and included a sham exposure control group. The results showed both down regulation and up regulation of the proteins.
Adamantia F. Fragopoulou, M.Sc., PhD Candidate, in the Dept of Cell Biology and Biophysics at University of Athens, Greece, lead author of the study, says,
“Our study is important because it shows for the first time protein changes in the mouse brain after EMF exposure and in particular in very crucial regions like hippocampus, cerebellum and frontal lobe, all involved in learning, memory and other complicated functions of the mammalian brain. We have demonstrated that 143 proteins are altered after electromagnetic radiation, including proteins that have been correlated so far with Alzheimer’s, glioblastoma, stress and metabolism. In its perspective, this study is anticipated to throw light in the understanding of such health effects like headaches, dizziness, sleep disorders, memory disorders, brain tumors, all of them related, to the function of the altered brain proteins.
“Until now there is limited evidence relating EMFs with the impact on specific brain proteins. Further analysis of the affected proteins as well as replicating the experiment under similar conditions (data presently under analysis) is expected to offer new insights explaining the overall effects.”
Lukas H. Margaritis, PhD, Professor Emeritus (as of Sept 2010) of Cell Biology and Radiobiology, Dept of Cell Biology and Biophysics, University of Athens, head of the Athens research group, says,
the authors say,
The Fragopoulou et al. study increases scientists’ understanding of the mechanisms of action of microwave radiation’s effect on the brain by affecting changes in proteins and protein functioning.
So as Electromagnetic smog from cell phones, wireless networks and citywide Wi-Fi causes brain fog ranging from attention problems, difficulty focusing, poor memory, visual and hearing disruptions, headaches, dizziness, depression and foggy thinking.
Now we know why having a bad memory isn’t confined to seniors anymore!
