Nokia’s former chief technology officer (CTO), Matti Niemelä spent 10 years developing technology used in your beloved Smartphone devices before he fell ill as a result of exceptionally high levels of accumulative exposure to cell phone radiation. Now he’s warning consumers about the health hazards attributed to microwave radiation absorption – it’s too late for him, but it might not be too late for you or your loved-ones![pullquote]Research Supports Claim Brain Damage From Cell Phone Radiation May Cause Multiple Sclerosis[/pullquote] Matti was a young healthy man when he was recruited to work for Nokia in 1997. The brilliant young man quickly advanced to become Nokia’s Chief Technology Officer, and was involved in developing the world’s first cell phones, memory sticks and WLAN [Wi-Fi] connections.
The first symptoms appeared within a year of his employment at Nokia. His executive level job required that he traveled around the world with a communicator [early model smart-phone] in hand – “exposure to radiation was very strong from morning to night, and even at night”, says Matti.[pullquote]On October 17th, 2014, Finnish newspaper Satakunnan kansa published several stories on cell phone radiation and health. The lead story is an interview with former Nokia technology head, Mr. Matti Niemelä, entitled “Entinen Nokia-pomo: Kännykkä vei terveyteni” (Former Nokia-boss: Cell phone took my health). He worked at Nokia from 1997 till 2007 when his health collapsed (Credit)[/pullquote] The symptoms of cell phone radiation breaking down Matti‘s blood-brain-barrier got worse year by year. The more intense the phone radiation exposure, the more his speech slurred. Finnish news sources quote Matti’s symptoms like coordination difficulties being directly affected by cell phone usage. “I couldn’t walk around while talking on the mobile-phone, because it caused coordination problems,”he said.
Many cell phone users complain of headaches from cell phones; but Matti’s electrosensitivty had progressed beyond what is commonly referred to as ES. “My ear felt hot when I talked on the phone for a long time. I struggled on, using the phone until I could no longer feel my skin. Then I had to go to the doctor, Niemelä explains.
Normally, a person’s nervous system would be inaccessible to the white blood cells due to the blood–brain barrier. Unfortunately for heavy cell phone users, it has already been proven radiation emitted by cell phones can allow toxins to bypass the blood-brain-barrier. Furthermore, 92% of all peer reviewed studies on RF and ROS indicate oxidative stress from cell phone radiation may also play an important role into the breakdown of the brain barrier.
It has sometimes been suggested that, rather than being a disease of the immune system, MS is a disease of the blood–brain barrier. The weakening of the blood–brain barrier may be a result of a disturbance in the endothelial cells on the inside of the blood vessel, due to which the production of the protein P-glycoprotein is not working well.
Magnetic resonance imaging has shown that when a person is undergoing an MS “attack,” the blood–brain barrier has broken down in a section of the brain or spinal cord, allowing white blood cells called T lymphocytes to cross over and attack the myelin that protects and electrically insulates the neurons of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
Research Supports Claim Brain Damage From Cell Phone Radiation May Cause Multiple Sclerosis
A study collaborating with The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, Dr. Dariusz Leszczynski put forward the hypothesis that mobile phone radiation-induced activation of hsp27 may facilitate the development of brain cancer by inhibiting the cytochrome c/caspase-3 apoptotic pathway and cause an increase in blood-brain barrier permeability through stabilization of endothelial cell stress fibers. We postulate that these events, when occurring repeatedly over a long period of time, might become a health hazard because of the possible accumulation of brain tissue damage. Furthermore, our hypothesis suggests that other brain damaging factors may co-participate in mobile phone radiation-induced effects.
A study by scientists at the University of Lund, near Malmo in Sweden, exposed rats to microwave impulses similar to those emitted by mobile phones. The exposure broke the blood-brain barrier within two minutes, exposing the brain tissue to proteins and toxins.
The study showed the damage was caused without emissions heating the rats heads. Otherwise at levels considered safe for humans. The neurologist who carried out the research, Professor Leif Salford, said “although it was unclear just how harmful the brain-blood change would be to a person’s health, we need to bear in mind diseases such as MS and Alzheimer’s which are linked to proteins found in the brain.”
