Dr. Leif Salford is a neurosurgeon at Lund University Hospital, and Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery. Since 1988 he has led a team of researchers that have exposed thousands of laboratory rats to microwave radiation from various sources. They found that the radiation damaged the blood-brain barrier even when the exposure level is reduced a thousandfold. Additionally, in other experiments in Salford’s laboratory, long term exposure of rats to radiofrequency caused memory impairment and genetic damage.
This research showing damage to the blood brain barrier has now been replicated.
