The negative effects of mobile phone radiation on the body, especially on the brain, have been known for some time. But a new study shows that constant exposure to this radiation leads to an increase in the amount of calcium in brain cells, which is one of the leading causes of Alzheimer’s disease, reports BGNES.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 6.5 million Americans over 65 suffer from the disease. The number of these patients increases every year. By 2050, the number of people over 65 who have Alzheimer’s could rise to 13 million. The Alzheimer’s Association reports that the disease affects blacks and Hispanics more often and that one in three older adults dies from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
Exposure to radiation from cell phones and Wi-Fi is thought to activate calcium-dependent potassium channels, which are responsible for controlling intracellular calcium levels, reports ” Natural News.” When electromagnetic radiation starts these channels, calcium accumulates faster in brain cells, negatively affecting the brain and even accelerating the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
