Blood Brain Barrier

Scientific Literature

Dr. Leif Salford and others have demonstrated that exposure to low level microwave radiation from wireless devices can cause the blood brain barrier to open for 2 weeks or more. Researchers have shown in rodent studies that wireless radiation exposure causes microvascular changes in the brain with leakage of albumin from the plasma into the brain resulting in long term neuronal damage.  In a 2015 study by Tang et al. rats were exposed to 900MHz radiation  for 3 hours a day at low power and well below current safety standards. They found after 28 days of exposure that there were structural changes in the hippocampus and cortex, damage to the blood brain barrier, cellular edema and neuronal degeneration.  This supports other studies listed in Nervous System Effects which show damage to neurons in the hippocampus with memory deficits. The hippocampus is a part of the brain that controls working and spatial memory, emotional memory and is involved in a chronic stress response.

Cell Phone Radiation Causes Leakage of the Blood Brain Barrier

Dr. Leif Salford, in this fascinating video, discusses the surprising results of his decades long research on the effects of low level radio frequency radiation exposure on the blood brain barrier in rodents. After short exposures there can be a lasting effect with an ultimately toxic results on critical neural structures.
