Depression An Allergic Reaction To Inflammation

New Research Discovers that Depression is an Allergic Reaction to Inflammation

Here are three plausible causes of the global depression epidemic:

  1. We know that microwave radiation opens the blood / brain barrier, is it allowing toxins to enter the brain, which then causes the inflammation and depression? 
  2. We know that cell phones held near the head can cause microwave radiation to penetrate the brain and cause a heating effect. Is that heating causing the brain to be inflamed, resulting in depression?  
  3. We know that people are being exposed to powerful radiation from wireless devices and antennas for many hours each day.  We know that this is having many different adverse biological effects on the body.  Are these biological effects causing inflammation, which then causes depression?  
Is wireless radiation causing the inflammation / depression?

By treating the inflammatory symptoms of depression -- rather than the neurological ones -- researchers and doctors are opening up an exciting new dimension in the fight against what has become a global epidemic.

"New research is revealing that many cases of depression are caused by an allergic reaction to inflammation. Tim de Chant of NOVA writes: "Inflammation is our immune system's natural response to injuries, infections, or foreign compounds. When triggered, the body pumps various cells and proteins to the site through the blood stream, including cytokines, a class of proteins that facilitate intercellular communication. It also happens that people suffering from depression are loaded with cytokines." Inflammation is caused by obesity, high sugar diets, high quantities of trans fats, unhealthy diets in general, and other causes. . . ."

Is there a connection between cell phones and cancer? Here are 44 reasons to believe that cell phones can cause cancer.

  • Cell phones emit microwave radio-frequency radiation. Fact. 
  • This radiation has the ability to penetrate our bodies. Fact. 
  • Our governments do virtually nothing to protect us from these dangers. Fact. 

And yet there is strong evidence and multiple peer reviewed studies that indicate that cell phones cause cancer and other diseases.

Take a look for yourself at these facts. But first let's just consider what cancer is. . . .

Why Autism Happens

autism answers and prevention

The Silent Autism Carriers - autism info



" . . . Based on Coulomb's inverse-square law, the comparative force of RF energy on reproductive DNA between the sexes may be calculated. When carried in a front trouser pocket, a mobile phone is in the order of 20 centimeters in distance from female reproductive DNA, but only 5 centimeters in distance from male reproductive DNA. By Coulomb's law, as distance is increased by a factor of four, electrostatic force is decreased by a factor of 16. In our trouser pocket scenario, male reproductive DNA receives 16 times greater force of RF radiation than female reproductive DNA.

Data Shows Cell Phones Associated with Autism  

"Do cell phones cause autism? According to government data, they are associated. This cell phone autism analysis shows the association, using publically-available CDC and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) data. U.S. states with high rates of cell phone subscribers have much higher rates of autism. This shows use of cell phones by parents leads to autism in children.  

"But not the mother's use of cell phones. A cohort study based on Amsterdam Born Children found that maternal mobile phone use during pregnancy does not increase the odds of behavior problems in their children. This is another expression of Coulomb's law; the majority of new autism cases are coming from men's fragmented reproductive DNA. . . .

Influence of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation on the Platelet Aggregation

International Journal of Biomedicine - Gulzoda M. Khamidova, MD

Abstract: "The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMFs) on platelet aggregation (PA) in individuals working for a long time under a direct and continuous RF-EMF exposure. We examined 119 persons aged from 22 to 65 years. In individuals working under the direct and constant exposure to RF-EMFs, the various changes of PA with a predominance of hyperaggregation are detected. The dependence of the changes in the indicators of PA on length of work in conditions of RF-EMF exposure is determined. . . .

Conclusion:  "The results of our study confirm the deleterious effect RF-EMF both on the blood cells and on blood rheology. In individuals working under the direct and constant exposure to RF-EMFs, the various changes of PA with a predominance of hyperaggregation are detected. The dependence of the changes in the indicators of PA on length of work in conditions of RFEMF exposure is determined."

It's Always Something - iPads influence Pacemakers and ICD's

Journal of the American Heart Association - April 2014

" . . . Magnets have been associated with pacemaker and implantable cardioverter/defibrillator (ICD) therapy since the beginnings of both therapies. Before sophisticated software‐based device programmers, magnets were used check the battery life and output of pacemakers and were also used to test ICD charge times, reform the capacitors, and inactivate and reactivate them around surgical procedures. Magnets play less of a role in our day‐to‐day practice of device follow‐up, but are still occasionally taped over devices during surgery to prevent sensing of electromagnetic interference from cautery and delivering inappropriate shocks.

"The study of Kozik et al.1 evaluated the risk involved in placing the popular iPad®, which have numerous magnets in their covers, over an ICD in the chest while the patient is supine and using the device to play games, read, surf the Web, watch movies, and so on. These are now common activities that did not exist 10 years ago when people fell asleep reading a book or watching a television set that was across the room.

"Although their study was small--27 patients--and did not include all device manufacturers, they did, in fact, show that, in a significant number of patients studied, the devices were affected by the magnets on the iPad. Nine (33%) devices were inhibited from sensing and treating life‐threatening arrhythmias. What's more, the devices that still had the "magnet turn‐off" function were completely turned off and would be nonfunctional not just for the duration of contact with the magnet, but potentially until the next formal device interrogation discovered the programming change. In that circumstance, the device could be nonfunctional for months.

"This study was performed in adults. If children with ICDs had been included, the numbers of affected devices may have been even higher because there are still abdominally placed devices in that population. With iPad commonly used by young people for online movie services, gaming, and schoolwork, one could expect significant contact between the magnetic cover and their ICD.

"Verrier and Josephson reviewed the effect of sleep on arrhythmogenesis2 and showed the nonuniform nighttime distribution of nocturnal sudden cardiac death. A Figure from their review shows the prevalence and distribution of noctural sudden cardiac death events. With rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, there are surges of sympathetic activity that affect heart rate, vasomotor tone, and even platelet aggregation. Similarly, patients with sleep disordered breathing have issues with nocturnal ischemia, atrial fibrillation, bradycardia, tachycardia, complex ventricular ectopy, and nonsustained ventricular tachycardia. Asystole and atrioventricular block is not uncommon during sleep in healthy individuals, but these changes in cycle length may not be benign in patients on potassium‐lowering diuretics or QT‐prolonging antiarrhythmic agents or in patients with LQT 2, LQT 3, or Brugada syndrome."
