The brain energy profile is distorted by microwave radiation
Because microwave radiation has gained increasing acceptance for brain tissue fixation, the concentrations of a broad range of biochemical intermediates from irradiated tissue were compared to that of freeze-blown brain tissue. Radiation reduced [ATP] and increased [ADP] coinciding with higher levels of intracellular free Mg2+, which gave rise to a novel energetic state. A change to the [Mg2+] modifies selected enzyme rate constants, which distort energy determinants in microwaved brains.
