Mobile phone radiation

Dear Dr Dixon,

Your talk on mobile phone radiation is very worrying because it downplays its enormous dangers. For more than 20 years independent researchers have found evidence that microwaves break down the blood-rain barrier, allowing toxins in the bloodstream directly into the brain. See Salford et al. 2003
Electromagnetic fields have been proven to increase the release of mercury form dental amalgam. A recent study showed the same effect from mobile phone radiation (See abstract below).
Both Alzheimer's Disease and autism are caused mainly by mercury. The Freiburger Appeal launched in 2002 by German environmental doctors refers to the huge increase in AD and other neurological disorders. See mercury research by Boyd Haley and Joachim Mutter.
The dangers of neurotoxins in the environment and food (MSG and aspartame) are increased drastically in the presence of microwave radiation.

The mechanism causing the damage seems to be nitric oxide that becomes a free radical under the influcence of ionsing and non-ionising radiation. See research by Bodo Kuklinski and Ulrich Warnke into nitrosative stress.

In the 1st phase of this study, thirty patients were investigated. Five milliliter stimulated saliva was collected just before and after MRI. The magnetic flux density was 0.23 T and the duration of exposure of patients to magnetic field was 30 minutes. In the 2nd phase, fourteen female healthy University students who had not used mobile phones before the study and did not have any previous amalgam restorations were investigated. Dental amalgam restoration was performed for all 14 students. Their urine samples were collected before amalgam restoration and at days 1, 2, 3 and 4 after restoration. The mean +/- SD saliva Hg concentrations of the patients before and after MRI were 8.6 +/- 3.0 and 11.3 +/- 5.3 microg L(-1), respectively (p < 0.01). A statistical significant (p < 0.05) higher concentration was observed in the students used mobile phone. The mean +/- SE urinary Hg concentrations of the students who used mobile phones were 2.43 +/- 0.25, 2.71 +/- 0.27, 3.79 +/- 0.25, 4.8 +/- 0.27 and 4.5 +/- 0.32 microg L(-1) before the amalgam restoration and at days 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively. Whereas the respective Hg concentrations in the controls, were 2.07 +/- 0.22, 2.34 +/- 0.30, 2.51 +/- 0.25, 2.66 +/- 0.24 and 2.76 +/- 0.32 microg L(-1). It appears that MRI and microwave radiation emitted from mobile phones significantly release mercury from dental amalgam restoration. Further research is needed to clarify whether other common sources of electromagnetic field exposure may cause alterations in dental amalgam and accelerate the release of mercury.
