A study of scientists from China revealed the tangible influence of teragerian radiation, which will create communication equipment 6G, on the biology of the brain. Allowable doses of radiation accelerated the growth of brain cells of mice by a factor of 2.5. Also, with regular exposure to teragers signals, mice showed better learning ability. The discovery raises questions about the safety of communication 6G, and where it opens the way to brain therapy.
Today, in general, medicine does not consider the radiation of cell phones and smartphones to be a health hazard, although many copies have been destroyed in the past, but the transition to the 6G standard since the early 2030s has been a mansion.
The future 6G cellular standard involves increasing the frequency of the radio signal to reach 1 Tbit/s. At terahertz range frequencies ranging from 0.3 THz to 3 THz, even low-power radiation begins to interact with a number of protein molecules in living cells. Such molecules are resonant and cells begin to respond to activity signals.
Scientists have found that three minutes of exposure to 100 umW of pulse radiation at a frequency of 0.3 to 3 THz makes mice in a petri dish grow almost 150 percent faster than usual, and the total length of the links between these neurons also doubles in just three days. At first glance, the effects of radiation appear to be threatening, although molecular analysis has not detected any unhealthy abnormalities in the cells.
In 2009, scientists at the Russian Academy of Sciences studied the effects of severe terahertz radiation on living brain cells of mice. With several hours of radiation per day, several watts of the temperature in the brain cells increased, their development deteriorated, they dehydrated, and they were reduced in size and otherwise damaged. A smaller dose of radiation, as found in China, could increase the production and activity of certain proteins, such as GlouA1, GluN1 and SY-38, which stimulate neurons growth.
There's a lot of hydrogen in these proteins that constantly vibrates. The frequency of these fluctuations falls into the terager range.
In addition, exposure to 90 MW teragers radiation for 20 minutes a day for three weeks has significantly increased the number of new brain cells in young mice, which have been able to learn some skills faster than those of the control group that have not been exposed.
The work done presents many new challenges for scientists, ranging from the definition of safe communication parameters for 6G to the use of teraherc radiation to treat neurodegenerative diseases.
