Looks like there is a known mechanism behind nerve damage from EMF from the 60's.
See below. I wonder what we can do about it?.. Seems an enzyme gets inhibited, .. how to un-inhibit, or how to create more of it.. no idea! It's acting like a pesticide!
It's also interesting that these levels can be tested, but some say the testing is not accurate unfortunately.
" Soviet research of electromagnetic radiation health effects in the 1960's and 1970's found that nonthermal EMF exposures could produce effects similar to other toxins, such as chemicals and heavy metals.20 One consistent finding from the Soviet research was that when humans and animals were exposed to radio wave or microwave frequency, this radiation would inhibit cholinesterase, producing an excess of acetylcholine - the same effect as organophosphate pesticides. 5,21,22 Some Soviet EMF researchers specifically pinpointed this enzyme effect as a significant factor leading to nervous system disfunction. 5,20,23 (Phase one of microwave sickness sometimes produced an increase in recorded cholinesterase, prior to phase two which evidenced decreased cholinesterase activity and central nervous system disfunction.)21"
"In a 1973 Soviet study, blood cholinesterase reduced to below 70% of pre-exposure levels in rats and rabbits exposed to the 30-300 MHz range at intensities of only .01 mW/cm2or .0019mW/cm2for 4 months. 23 According to the U.S. National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), when organophosphate pesticide exposure results in a decrease of blood cholinesterase to less than 70% of the pre-exposure level, that exposure is considered unacceptable due to the health hazard. 13 A 1994 Soviet study by the Russian Institute of Cell Biophysics produced an average drop in brain cholinesterase to 70% of pre-exposure levels in rats after one 60 minute exposure to pulsed 880 MHz at 1.5mW/cm2. 24 Also, a U.S. government study conducted in cooperation with Soviet researchers in an effort to replicate Soviet findings discovered that microwaves of 2.45 GHz at .5mW/cm2 intensity resulted in blood cholinesterase inhibition in rats exposed during three months for seven hours daily. 6 This study confirmed prior Soviet accounts of nonthermal microwave health effects. "
The US level permitted is 1mW/cm2 , Russians Chinese is 0.01mW/cm2. Canada is 0.43mW/cm2
The nervous system seems to be targeted because of the cholinesterase reduction. Also references in there that effects seems to be cumulative, found by the Russians.
The results revealed that WiFi exposure caused a significant increase in anxiety level and affect locomotor function. Furthermore, there was a significant decrease in AChE activity with a concomitant increase in AChE mRNA expression level in WiFi exposed rats when compared with control. In conclusions, these data showed that long term exposure to WiFi may lead to adverse effects such as neurodegenerative diseases as observed by a significant alteration on AChE gene expression and some neurobehavioral parameters associated with brain damage.
Ok so there is one thing that might help: Dilantin and atropin.
Magnesium salts was also found to help.
The importance of this enzyme effect in producing
ES-type symptoms from chemicals and from chronic,
low-level EMF exposures leads to a mechanism of
action for explaining many EMF-related health
effects by using conventional medical and scientific
knowledge of poisons. That radiation exposure at
nonthermal, nonionizing doses can produce the same
effect as chemical poisons such as organophosphate
pesticides provides sound evidence for a radiation
poisoning effect. It also may explain why some
MCS patients become ES too and why some ES also
become MCS. The agents are different (chemical
vs. physical), but the effect is the same - inhibiting
When trying to conceptualize a problem, it is
often helpful to know what the opposite of the
problem might be. In this case, the disease myasthenia gravis (MG) appears to have characteristics the
opposite of organophosphate pesticide poisoning and
cholinesterase inhibition. MG patients may take a
type of medication called anticholinesterase, which
purposely reduces cholinesterase in order to increase
acetylcholine.25 MG is generally considered an
autoimmune disease of muscle weakness diagnosed
by a blood test for antibodies to the acetylcholine
receptor. 25 Drugs that make MG worse include
magnesium salts and the prescription drugs Dilantin
and atropine. 25.
26 In one Soviet study, Dilantin was
shown to be beneficial in treating patients with
hypothalamic syndrome, a phase of microwave
sickness; magnesium, which assists enzyme processes, has been helpful for some ES. 19,27 Some
animal studies with Dilantin have shown a reduction
in acetylcholine due to the drug's effect.28 Dilantin
also has shown a protective effect against incesticide poisoning, specifically regarding organophosphates and DDT.28 (However, Dilantin (phenytoin)
appears on a medical list of drugs not recommended
for those with porphyria.)29
Organophosphate pesticide poisoning is often
treated with the prescription drug atropine or other
drugs.18 Atropine was also used by the Soviets for
treating some cases of microwave sickness. 30,31
Summarizing the clues here:
• Atropine and Dilantin are linked to antidote or
protective effects regarding organophosphate
• Atropine was used by the Soviets in treating
some cases of microwave sickness.
• Dilantin was reported to be helpful in treating
hypothalamic syndrome, the final phase of
• Magnesium is helpful for some ES.
Magnesium salts, Dilantin, and atropine can
make myasthenia gravis patients worse-their
illness appearing to have characteristics opposite of radiation poisoning and organophosphate poisoning which inhibit the enzyme
I'd say magnesium is probably the best of anything at helping the enzyme activity get better.. The others have not been proven to help.
I think this is a very important part of the mechanism of how EMFs damage nerves, and I'm surprised it's not talked about more often.
