Back in 2011, the International Agency for the Research of Cancer (IARC) classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as a Group 2B Carcinogenic (cancer causing agent).
While RF exposure is currently being looked in to due to its ability to alter cellular function, potentially leading to cancerous growths, little research has been done on the effects of this type of radiation on the mental component of a person.
While many who are sensitive to electromagnetic frequencies complain of symptoms such as insomnia, malaise, irritability and cognitive dysfunction, few realize that these are results of a change in brain function following exposure to certain types of EMFs.
A recently published Pub Med Study by Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University in Portland, OR, confirms earlier research showing that radiofrequency radiation has Neuropsychiatric effects. Meaning, EMF exposure can alter your brain.
The August 2015 study states:
“Low intensity microwave EMFs have been proposed to produce neuropsychiatric effects, sometimes called microwave syndrome.…Soviet and Western literature shows that much of the impact of non-thermal microwave exposures in experimental animals occurs in the brain and peripheral nervous system, such that nervous system histology and function show diverse and substantial changes.”
The study confirmed more recent US research done on the effects of cell phone usage on the brain.
“…18 more recent epidemiological studies, provide substantial evidence that microwave EMFs from cell/mobile phone base stations, excessive cell/mobile phone usage and from wireless smart meters can each produce similar patterns of neuropsychiatric effects…”
It seems the brain, in an attempt to protect itself from the radiation, utilizes calcium channel blockers:
“Calcium channel blockers block EMF effects and several types of additional evidence confirm this mechanism.”
Calcium channel blockers play a big role in the body’s release of certain hormones and neurotransmitters. In short, if your calcium channel blockers are being used up by the nervous system in an attempt to protect itself from exposure to radiations, they are no longer available in the same density to produce the hormones and neurotransmitters that keep you functioning well and feeling good.
While short bouts of depression are a normal part of the human experience, EMF induced depression is biochemical. So, if feeling down and you don’t know why, look around at the tech you are surrounding yourself with. Your “depression” might be the result of exposure to EMFs, otherwise known as Microwave Syndrome.
