alzheimers news-digital dementia


most of us have a cell phone we stick up to our ear when we are talking to folks
some use ear buds and some use the speaker button on our phones
those last two options may be the best it seems if this article i read this week is true

ive heard about folks claiming there is an increased risks to get brain cancer from sticking the cell phones up to our ears
if that was true it seems since cell phones have been around so long that studies would have definitely shown that to be the case
ive not see a definitive study showing thats true

after reading this article linked here i thought about my cell phone usage

i realized if i am having  a long conversation with someone i always use my ear buds
if i do talk on the phone otherwise then i only talk a few minutes

i thought maybe im safe if this is true

this article reviewed a study recently published in the journal current alzheimer risk
the researchers found that the electronically generated radiofrequency signals from the cell phone may alter the calcuim channels in the brain cells which cause calcium to accumulate

this calcium accumulation may lead to neurocognitive degeneration or memory loss 
the memory loss is called digital dementia

studies done in rats or mice show this to be the case

as those of us in the alzheimers world knows 
lots of things that happen to rat brains dont happen to human brains
a lot of potential cures dont pan out in humans but seem to work in these rodents

well we certainly have a large pool of people who are overusing their cell phones sticking them up to their ears for long periods of time
maybe study those folks

more research needs to be done to see if this is true
i have always wondered what health effects these radiofrequency signals may have on the brain
maybe like cancer
maybe like digital dementia

what im saying is 
dont let your brain get digitalized
