The negative effect on the body, especially the brain, of cell phone radiation has long been known. The study indicates that too much exposure leads to higher levels of intracellular calcium in the brain, a major feature of Alzheimer's disease.

According to the Alzheimer's Association, more than 6.5 million Americans aged 65 and older are living with Alzheimer's disease.
The number of diagnoses is increasing each year. By 2050, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's could be as many as 13 million. The Alzheimer's Association said the condition also unduly affects Black and Hispanic communities and one in three seniors die from the condition or other dementias.
It is believed that exposure to cell phone radiation and Wi-Fi triggers voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs), which are responsible for controlling intracellular calcium levels.
When electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) turn on these channels, calcium can quickly build up in the brain, which negatively affects it and possibly brings forward the beginning of Alzheimer's.
This isn't the first time EMFs have been linked to health problems. While the National Cancer Institute said any connection between EMFs and cancer is improbable, Healthline pointed out that there are other more familiar issues associated with EMFs, such as irritability, headaches, insomnia and other related symptoms.
Researchers have found Alzheimer's-specific changes in the brains of rats exposed to EMF pulses. The negative changes happened in the hippocampus, an area of the brain known to be affected by Alzheimer's.
"EMFs act via peak electric and time varying magnetic forces at a nanosecond time scale," study author and Washington State University Professor Martin L. Pall said in a media statement.
These peaks substantially rise with each boost in the pulse modulation coming from smartphones, smart meters and the radar in self-driving vehicles.
"Any of these may produce the ultimate nightmare – extremely early onset Alzheimer's disease," Pall added.
Pall noted that both human genetic and pharmacological studies have revealed a connection between rising VGCC activity and an increasing number of Alzheimer's cases.
The 12 latest reports on occupational exposure to EMFs proved that workers near this kind of radiation in most cases had greater Alzheimer's rates than their peers. Despite the fact that Alzheimer's-related changes in the brain can begin 25 years before actual symptoms appear, these studies revealed that EMF exposure can shorten the start period as well.
Furthermore, the average age that doctors are diagnosing Alzheimer's has also been declining over the past 20 years. Pall said this has corresponded with the enormous development in wireless communication technology across the globe. Current studies have even discovered that people as young as 30 or 40 are suffering from the disease.
Several researchers are worried that very young people with frequent exposure to cell phones and Wi-Fi radiation could end up with "digital dementia."
A 2008 report discovered that two hours of regular exposure to low-intensity mobile phone base station radiation resulted in "massive neurodegeneration" in the brains of young rats – a third of them dying within one month.
Pall has called for more research that would focus on three particular things.
First, more data on brain marker surveys of Alzheimer's disease and MRI brain scans, which show abnormalities in young people showing signs of digital dementia.
Second, EMF exposure assessments for individuals between 30 and 40 years old receiving an early-onset Alzheimer's diagnosis. These assessments must compare their exposure to cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, smart meter and dirty electricity radiation levels against normal levels.
Third, more examinations for early signs of Alzheimer's disease in people living near small cell antennae for more than one year.
"Findings from each of these studies should be shared with the general public so that everyone can take the steps necessary to reduce the incidence of early-onset Alzheimer's disease," Pall said.
