However their condition was not real Alzheimer and they might even have developed this order if they had been exposed long enough says Dr. Jaan Suurküla. He proposes an explantion why they seemed to improve in his blog, see "Alzheimer-imitating mice don't prove cellphones are safe".
Dr Jaan Suurküla (PSRAST) has proposed that mobile phone usage may have contributed importantly to the great increase in stress burnout in recent years (1).
He noted that it has been established that deep sleep, so called stage four sleep, is important for the regeneration of the brain and the body.
He also noted that the increase of stress burnout has roughly parallelled the increased usage of mobile phones in Sweden.
He suggests that failing regeneration of the brain due to disturbed sleep caused by mobile phone radiation may contribute to stress burnout.

Where the gene becomes attached to the DNA of the host organism is a matter of pure chance.Depending on where it becomes attached, the gene could change the properties of a protein so that in the worst case, it becomes toxic or allergenic.If the protein is an enzyme, the result could be the creation of a new and, in the worst case, toxic or allergenic substance.
Suurkula said the views stated on the Web site are written by members.However, the statements are not signed, because so many scientists are dependent on industry and grants for their work, he said.They fear retribution if their names become known.
"Scientists have spoken out and gotten into difficulties," Suurkula said.
The implications of genetically engineered food are much more profound than anyone ever thought, Kucinich said."We're changing the basic stuff of life.For the first time there's a sense in which man is using science not just to complement nature, but to supplant nature and to redesign the work of creation.This has moral and ethical implications which precede health and safety implications."

"The present procedure for assessing the safety of genetically engineered food is insufficient for detecting unexpected poisons that may appear due to genetic engineering," says Dr Jaan Suurkula, M.D., chairman of PSRAST, and refers to their articles "Inadequate safety assessment of GE foods" and "An example of fatal "substantial equivalence" is at He continues: "It is well established that genetic engineering may cause the appearance of unexpected substances.
