“900 MHz EMF Exposure Relieved AD-Like Symptoms on APP/PS1 Mice: A Potential Non-Invasive Strategy for AD Treatment,” Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications, May 28, 2023.

“The present results indicated that long-term microwave radiation can retard AD development and exert a beneficial effect against AD, suggesting that 900 MHz microwave exposure may be a potential therapy for AD.” From the Beijing Institute of Radiation Medicine. Open access.

“Leaky Blood Vessels in the Brain May Lead to Alzheimer’s,” National Public Radio (NPR), January 23, 2015.

Might this prompt a new look at RF and leakage through the blood-brain barrier —an unresolved controversy that has been festering for more than 40 years? Based on a new study published in Neuron. See also the accompanying editorial.

It's not just childhood leukemia anymore. Alzheimer's Disease is poised to take center stage in the long-simmering EMF-health controversy.

A couple of weeks ago, a group led by Martin Röösli at Switzerland's University of Bern reported that people living within 50 meters of a high-voltage power line were more likely to die with Alzheimer's. The longer they lived near a 220-380 kV power line, the greater the risk: After 15 years, the odds of dying with Alzheimer's were double the expected rate. It is this striking dose-response —with the risk increasing over time— that makes the Swiss study compelling. Röösli told Microwave News that he himself found the consistency of this increase "surprising." Other members of the Röösli team are Anke Huss, Adrian Spoerri and Matthias Egger.
