Abstract

We investigated whether a 2-month dietary supplementation of antioxidants, in the form of blueberry phytochemicals, could reverse or retard the age-related decline in temporal processing speed observed in the aged rat. To this end, extracellular single unit responses to frequency modulated (FM) sweeps were recorded in the primary auditory cortex (AI) of aged rats that had been placed on either a blueberry-supplemented or control diet 2 months prior to the physiological recordings. Results showed that most cells recorded from the blueberry-fed rats responded most vigorously to fast FM sweeps, similar to that observed in young rats. In contrast, the majority of cells recorded from the control rats showed a preference for slow FM sweep rates. These results suggest that age-related changes in temporal processing speed in A1 may be reversed by dietary supplementation of blueberry phytochemicals.

While this study does not mention emf’s or radiation, blueberries are very likely to be one of the foods that are helpful in rebalancing the body.

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome

Many users of mobile handsets have reported feeling several unspecific symptoms during and after its use, such as burning and tingling sensations in the skin of the head and extremities, fatigue, sleep disturbances, dizziness, loss of mental attention, reaction times and memory retentiveness, headaches, malaise, tachycardia (heart palpitations) and disturbances of the digestive system. Some researchers, implying a causal relationship, have named this syndrome as a new diagnostic entity, EHS or ES (electrosensitivity). The World Health Organization prefers to name it “idiopathic environmental intolerance”, in order to avoid the implication of causation. This entity is quite controversial, because albeit identified in unmistaken terms by the patients who affirm to suffer from it, in some cases ….that they avoid using cellphones, it has not been recognized as a separate clinical entity by most medical researchers…….yet…

I agree with these suggestions, although Emily thought they were extreme.

EMF-Health.com has published a list of 10 (extreme) steps you can take to minimize the effects of cell phone radiation exposure: [via digg]

They seem well, pretty extreme to me. A personal favorite point 10: “Take nutritional supplements”.

1. Limit use to essential calls and keep calls short
2. Children should be allowed to use the cell phone in cases of emergency only
3. Wear an airtube headset (not regular wired headset)
4. Don’t put the cell phone in your pocket or belt while in use or while it is on
5. Wait for the call to connect before placing the phone next to the ear
6. Do not use the cell phone in enclosed metal spaces such as vehicles or elevators
7. Do not make a call when the signal strength is one bar or less
8. Purchase a phone with a low SAR (Specific Absorption Rate)
9. Use a scientifically validated EMF protection device
10. Take nutritional supplements

Bio Pro has proven technologies that offer protection from radiation from cell phones. Bio Pro’s Harmonization Chips (developed by German scientists) are activated and programmed to neutralize or harmonize the range of frequencies that emanate from cell phones, cordless phones and other radiation-emitting devices, converting them into harmless frequency waves. Once the chip is applied to the phone, or other device, the harmful effects of this radiation are effectively neutralized, making them safe to use.


EMF Protection

Your ear canal (directly connected to your brain) is heated the most. Only 15 minutes of using a cell phone creates significant heating of tissues in the head. The orange, red and pink colours show the areas being heated; blue and green are cooler.

The “After” photo was taken after 15 minutes of using the same cell phone that was protected with BIOPRO harmonization technology! Tissue temperature remained normal!
