Allan Frey, Modulation and Microwave Radiation Crossing the Blood Brain Barrier

The information for this blog post is from a GQ article written by Christopher Ketcham in 2010 called “Warning: Your Cell Phone May Be Hazardous to Your Health.” It is beautifully written (very clear prose) and I am closely paraphrasing and quoting directly.

What do they Mean by Modulation?

In this article Ketcham in his discussion of  neuroscientist’s Allen Frey’s work explains what “modulation” is.  This is important to know because this term is used in other scientific studies and discussions on low frequency radiation. For example, I have heard scientists say it is the “modulation” of the radiation which is what has an impact (and also that waves which carry data can be dangerous), but I haven’t quite understood what that means.  Ketchum explains that microwaves can be divided into two parts: what is called a carrier wave and then the data or information which the carrier wave carries.  That data—words, sounds, pictures—Ketcham says, is a second frequency and is called “modulation.

“Frey observed two factors in how microwaves at low power could affect living systems. First, there was the carrier wave: a frequency of 1,900 megahertz, for example, the same frequency of many cell phones today. Then there was the data placed on the carrier wave—in the case of cell phones, this would be the sounds, words, and pictures that travel along it. When you add information to a carrier wave, it embeds a second signal—a second frequency—within the carrier wave. This is known as modulation. A carrier wave can support any number of modulations, even those that match the ­extra-low frequencies at which the brain operates (between eight and twenty hertz). It was modulation, Frey discovered, that induced the widest variety of biological effects. But how this happened, on a neuronal level, he didn’t yet understand.”

Here Ketcham  describes how Frey discovered that “microwaves pulsed at certain modulations” could breach the blood brain barrier:

“In a study published in 1975 in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, Frey reported that microwaves pulsed at certain modulations could induce “leakage” in the barrier between the circulatory system and the brain. Breaching the blood-brain barrier is a serious matter: It means the brain’s environment, which needs to be extremely stable for nerve cells to function properly, can be perturbed in all kinds of dangerous ways. Frey’s method was rather simple: He injected a fluorescent dye into the circulatory system of white rats, then swept the ­microwave frequencies across their bodies. In a matter of minutes, the dye had leached into the confines of the rats’ brains.”

The question we don’t know about Smart Meter pulsed radiation (and that radiation is also going to be controlled remotely, turned on and off, by a utility company) is what effect its unique modulation is having on our bodies.

Says Frey in regards to cell phones:

“it just so happens. .. that the frequencies and modulations of our cell phones seem to be the frequencies that humans are particularly sensitive to. If we had looked into it a little more, if we had done the real science, we could have allocated spectrums that the body can’t feel. . .The public should know if they are taking a risk with cell phones.  What we are doing is a grand world experiment without informed consent.”

Ditto for Smart Meters.

    The real question is “Were Cell Phone & Smart Meter frequencies chosen out of Gross Negligence (Man Slaughter) or by design (Pre Meditated Murder). See this link: Finally, who benefits from injuring us?
    We need to follow the money.

    To Eric Windheim:
    I’ve researched approximatly 100,000 pages of evidence relating electromagnetic frequencies to altered biological functions. After nearly 30 years of study, I have concluded that no one can possibly benifit from this adventure- at all.
    There is strong evidence that human brain function is directly modified by EM exposures, and this (in itself) causes behavioral addiction to the EMF stimulus. Whilst this sounds counter-intuitive, there is significant scientific evidence relative to this asscertion. EM radiation exposure directly alters levels of important chemical substances in the mesioliymbic areas of the human brain.
    These chemical elements include dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, and a number of other precursor elements that regulate levels of epinephrine within the adrenal system. A quote from Wikipedia: “The major physiologic triggers of adrenaline release center upon stresses, such as physical threat, excitement, noise, bright lights, and high ambient temperature. All of these stimuli are processed in the central nervous system.” See Wikipedia: “Epinephrine”
    “In rodent physiology, scientists reason that the medial forebrain bundle is the pleasure center of rats. If a rat is given the choice between stimulating the forebrain or eating, it will choose stimulation to the point of exhaustion.” See Wikipedia: “Pleasure center”
    Also see Wikipedia: “Nucleus accumbens”
    Sorry I can’t be more specific here, but there are significant limits to this format.
    Best regards,

    Found you tonight online after researching EMF radiation collective effect on my husband
    as we spent 3 days in hotel, his cell phone just has died everytime we visit, he
    places it on the granite counter in the room. it dies. this year same thing and he came
    home with aches and pains in muscles. Tonight I found the EMF community and
    now suspect our smartmeter, our cell phones, our car! Frey was right. Thanks from
    Mary in Chattanooga.

      Hello Mary in Chattanooga,
      It is good that you have discovered the EM radiation issue as related to your husbands symptoms. Once these more obvious neurological symptoms begin, it means there is already significant damage to neuronal structures. It is important to reduce or eliminate as many of these EM exposures as possible, so that the body can begin the process of repair. There are quality sheilding products that can help, such as Y-shield paints, EM reducing films for windows, and grounded silver fabric bed canopies. Extremely low frequency 50 or 60 cycle magnetic induction is much more difficult to protect against. These low frequency radiations produce wavelengths which are very long. The dangerous pulsed fields produced by “Smart Meters” require Giron or MuMetal magnetic shielding or other low frequency plated materials such as Mag-StopTM Plates. Heres an introductory link. >
      EM radiation is a KNOWN biological hazard, and is destroying many lives. World governments are NOT responding to this hazard in an appropriate or sober way, because I believe our ‘control group’ has already gone quite insane from EM poisoning.
      Do your best to protect youself, and educate those you love.

        Please see my presentation on YouTube, entitled R.F. Hearing or
        Microwave Hearing a Presentation by Tom Lee.
        It describes how the U. S. Government is using spy satellites as space
        based electronic biological weapons on the people of this country,
        the world and on me. It uses the principles of R.F. phase cancellation detection to
        generate sonic, and subsonic and ultra sonic signals into the body.
        You can generate the human voice directly into the body and hear
        the voice directly. Any other signal can be sent into the body in this manner
        to destroy the biological system of the human being.
        Others have said this but they left out the R.F. phase cancellation part of it.
        This gets rid of the R.F. signal and leaves only the audio and other
        low frequency signals that can affect the body. If left as R.F.Signal,it would
        go right thru the body and not affect it. You do it by sending two identical
        R.F. signals with a modulation signal on it. Then phase shift one of the R.F.
        signals by 180 degrees. This will allow the R.F. to cancel out and leave only the
        modulation in the body, like a human voice, subsonic and ultrasonic signals.
        These modulation signals can destroy or electrocute the body.
        I will be presenting a new update to my current presentation, on YouTube, which will
        show electronic instruments measuring signals hitting my body. I will, in a
        future demonstration, on YouTube show a voice generated in the human body.
        These space based weapons have been used by the U.S, Government since the early
        1970’s when it was made and put in satellites as a spy and electronic biological
        weapons system in the cold war.
        I know this, because I am an electrical engineer that worked on circuits that
        went into these spy and space based electronic biological weapons satellites.
        I worked at Hughes Company’s Space and Communications Group. These satellites
        also bounced R.F. signals off the vocal cords of people, and picked up conversations
        of people, to spy on people of other countries, and of this country. The satellites
        were called SDS, M34,M22, C-Cube, C-Quad, and others.
        Please, again view my YouTube presentation. Tell others, so you can to educate them.
