Addicted to mobile phones, may suffer from Alzheimer's disease at a young age? You're right. The latest research from the University of Washington shows that excessive radiation from mobile phones and wireless networks can lead to early-onset Alzheimer's disease . The word "early" indicates that this kind of Alzheimer's disease may begin to attack before the age of 65. In fact, many patients with early-onset Alzheimer's disease have symptoms between the ages of 30 and 60, while traditional Alzheimer's disease is more common in people over the age of 70.
In the early stage of Alzheimer's disease, memory loss and judgment ability decline; In the middle stage, the patients' near far memory was seriously impaired, and the visuospatial ability of simple structure decreased; In the late stage, patients only have memory fragments, and they often can't take care of themselves in their daily life.
According to statistics, in the past 20 years, the average age of patients diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease has also decreased .
Professor Martin L. pall from the University of Washington pointed out that this is consistent with the explosive development of global wireless communication technology.
Mobile phones and wireless networks may lead to early onset of Alzheimer's disease?
The study found that the low-intensity electromagnetic field of wireless communication will also lead to the accelerated growth of calcium ions in brain cells.
Previous experiments have proved that excessive calcium in the brain is one of the key pathogenic factors of Alzheimer's disease.
On this basis, Professor pall's team further studied the specific harm of excessive calcium ions to the brain.
On the one hand, the increase of calcium ions will lead to β- More amyloid. Its abnormal accumulation will make neurons lose some functions, resulting in neuronal entanglement and more brain function loss, which has a great impact on memory and cognitive function.
On the other hand, various low-intensity electromagnetic fields activate voltage-gated calcium channel (VGCC). The increase of calcium concentration produces excessive calcium signal and hydrogen peroxide, which will lead to the increase of oxidative stress, inflammatory cytokines and mitochondrial dysfunction.
In short, low-intensity electromagnetic fields may also denature brain neurons, leading to Alzheimer's disease.
The radiation of daily electronic products is low, but do not use them too long
Although mobile phones, wireless networks and microwave ovens in daily life belong to non ionizing radiation spreading low power, and their radiation is lower than the national standard of 0.4 watts per square meter, try not to use them for too long.
In particular, all generation Z friends who have been seamlessly connected with the network information age since their birth~
Because the electromagnetic waves of various non ionizing radiation may interfere with each other, produce larger peaks and spread more energy. This influence is imperceptible.
Professor pall said that the purpose of sharing the research results is not to intimidate everyone here, but mainly to enable everyone to take some measures to reduce the incidence rate of early-onset Alzheimer's disease, and called on relevant institutions to pay attention to monitoring.
However, as an aside, we don't have to worry about the problem that the faster the Internet speed, the greater the radiation.
Because the 5g network does not rely on enhancing the signal transmission power of the communication base station, but on expanding the transmission bandwidth. The radiation of 5g base station is lower than that of many household appliances.
