New research reveals that numbers of those affected by dementia in the UK is escalating. By 2015 there will be 850,000 people living with dementia and if current trends stay the same and no action is taken, this number is expected to bypass two million by 2051.
A report published this week prepared by King’s College London and the London School of Economics for the Alzheimer’s Society says that the UK has an estimated 42,000 people suffering from early onset dementia, including thousands of cases among those in their 30s, and 40s
Previous estimates had suggested that just 17,000 cases of dementia involve younger people. But frightening new figures suggest 42,325 in the UK alone.
Professor Martin Prince, Professor of Epidemiological Psychiatry and Head of the Department of Health Service and Population Research at King’s said: “The scale of the future dementia epidemic in the UK can probably be limited through more attention to prevention – our progress towards achieving healthier brain aging needs to be monitored in regular national surveys.”
John Coates, who founded RF Safe Corporation, a company that designs products to protect your brain from cell phone radiation, claims “due to the nature of dementia, unlike brain tumors, victims don’t have the mental capacity to correlate a connection between cell phone use and their disease”
Among younger people, the second most common cause is vascular dementia, which occurs when there are problems in the blood supply to the brain. One in five cases of early onset dementia are caused by this.
Cell Phones Decrease Blood-flow in the Brain! Turku PET Centre, University of Turku, Turku, Finland published, “Mobile phone affects cerebral blood flow in humans”, on Feb 22, 2006.
Explorative and objective voxel-based statistical analysis revealed that a mobile phone in operation induces a local decrease in rCBF (Regional Cerebral Blood Flow) beneath the antenna in the inferior temporal cortex and an increase more distantly in the prefrontal cortex. Our results provide the first evidence, suggesting that the EMF emitted by a commercial mobile phone affects rCBF in humans. These results are consistent with the postulation that EMF induces changes in neuronal activity.
In vivo animal and in vitro experiments have suggested mechanisms for EMF effects on neurons, such as changes in cell membrane permeability, calcium efflux, or neuronal excitability, but controversies remain (for a thorough review, see Independent Expert Group on Mobile Phones, 2000).
Cell Phone Radiation Opens the Blood-Brain Barrier
- Dr. Allan Frey reported BBB leakage when the head was exposed to microwaves as far back as 1974
- US Army researchers confirmed the finding in 1977
- In 1992 Swedish researchers also confirmed the effect, and suggested that this could possibly lead to Alzheimer’s disease or other neurological diseases
- Increased blood-brain barrier permeability in mammalian brain 7 days after exposure to the radiation from a GSM-900 mobile phone. 2009 Aug
Neurosurgeon Shows How Low Levels of Radiation Such As Wi-Fi, Smart Meters And Cell Phones Cause The Blood Brain Barrier To Leak
Neurosurgeon Dr. Leif Salford has conducted many studies on radio frequency radiation and its effects on the brain. Dr. Salford called the potential implications of some of his research “terrifying.” Some of the most concerning conclusions result from the fact that the weakest exposure levels to wireless radiation caused the greatest effect in causing the blood brain barrier to leak.
Since he began his line of research in 1988, Dr. Leif Salford and his colleagues at Lund University Hospital in Sweden has exposed over 1,600 experimental animals to low-level microwave radiation. Their results were consistent and worrisome: radiation, including that from smartphones, caused the blood-brain barrier–the brain’s defense against infections and toxic chemicals–to leak.
Salford, chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at his institution, called the potential implications “terrifying.” “We have good reason to believe,” he said, “that what happens in rats’ brains also happens in humans.” Referring to today’s teenagers, the study’s authors wrote that “a whole generation of users may suffer negative effects, perhaps as early as in middle age.”
“A rat’s brain is very much the same as a human’s. They have the same blood-brain barrier and neurons,” he told BBC News Online.
“We have good reason to believe that what happens in rat’s brains also happens in humans.”
Professor Salford said that there was also a chance exposure to mobile phone radiation could trigger Alzheimer’s disease in some people.
“What we are saying is those neurons that are already prone to Alzheimer’s disease may be stimulated earlier in life.”
Professor Salford study is published in Environmental Health Perspectives – the journal of the US government’s National Health Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Alzheimer’s Patient Zero and The Birth of Microwaves – Same Place, Same Time!
The first Alzheimer’s patient and the location of the first microwaves/x-rays ever created on earth originate in the same area’s surrounding Frankfurt Germany – RF exposure for citizens living near radio wave experiments cumulatively had exposure to microwaves starting roughly 10-15 years prior to the first documented case of Alzheimer’s originating in the same geographical area in Germany.
Between 1886 and 1889 Hertz would conduct a series of experiments that would prove the effects he was observing were results of Maxwell’s predicted electromagnetic waves. S tarting in November 1887 with his paper “On Electromagnetic Effects Produced by Electrical Disturbances in Insulators”, Hertz would send a series of papers to Helmholtz at the Berlin Academy, including papers in 1888 that showed transverse free space electromagnetic waves traveling at a finite speed over a distance. In the apparatus Hertz used, the electric and magnetic fields would radiate away from the wires as transverse waves. Hertz had positioned the oscillator about 12 meters from a zinc reflecting plate to produce standing waves.
Hertz did not realize the practical importance of his experiments. He stated that,
“It’s of no use whatsoever[…] this is just an experiment that proves Maestro Maxwell was right—we just have these mysterious electromagnetic waves that we cannot see with the naked eye. But they are there.”
Asked about the ramifications of his discoveries, Hertz replied,
“Nothing, I guess.”
Hertz’s proof of the existence of airborne electromagnetic waves (referred to as “Hertzian Waves” early on) would lead to experimentation in this new form of electromagnetic radiation and the eventual development of commercial Hertzian wave based wireless telegraphy (radio), audio radio, television and even today’s Smartphones.
In 1892, Hertz began experimenting and demonstrated that cathode rays could penetrate very thin metal foil (such as aluminium). Philipp Lenard, a student of Heinrich Hertz, further researched this “ray effect”. He developed a version of the cathode tube and studied the penetration by X-rays of various materials. Philipp Lenard, though, did not realize that he was producing X-rays.
Later that same year in 1892, after only a decade of experiments with radio-waves, Hertz was diagnosed with an infection (after a bout of severe migraines) and underwent operations to treat the illness. He died of Wegener’s granulomatosis at the age of 36. Even today, the exact cause of Wegener’s granulomatosis is still unknown, but it is an autoimmune disorder that was most likely brought on by EMF exposure. Wegener’s granulomatosis is a form of vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) that affects small- and medium-size vessels in many organs.
Hertz was greatly mistaken to think the ramifications of his discoveries were “Nothing”. It’s my theory Heinrich Rudolf Hertz died because of his experiments with radio waves, studies on expression profiles suggest that NF-κB contributes to the pathology by inducing pro-inflammatory genes from the exposure to Hertz’s new form of electromagnetic radiation that millions more suffer today.
So, Hertz began experimenting in 1886 and 15 years later in 1901, Dr. Alzheimer observed a patient at the Frankfurt Asylum named Auguste Deter. The 51-year-old patient had strange behavioral symptoms, including a loss of short-term memory. This patient would become his obsession over the coming years. In April 1906, Mrs Deter died and Alzheimer had the patient records and the brain which led to the first “presenile dementia” case to be discovered.
With two Italian physicians, he used the staining techniques to identify amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. A speech given on 3 November 1906 was the first time the pathology and the clinical symptoms of presenile dementia were presented together.
It was not the first time that Alzheimer had seen a complete degeneration of the psyche in patients, but previously the patients had been in their seventies.
However it is the first known case of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, family accounts place her symptoms beginning in 1890, and today we know that was after 4 yrs of on and off exposure to unnatural man-made electromagnetic radiation.
Studies of Mrs Deter brain in modern times show she was carrying the gene attributed to early-on set Alzheimer’s, the question arises if Mrs Deter was exposed to enough man-made electromagnetic radiation which could have stimulated the disease earlier in life as Dr. Leif Salford research suggested.
