" Electromagnetic radiation may induce some degenerative effects in the brain by increasing oxidative stress and DNA breakage plus interference with the blood–brain barrier permeability. There are also recent reports on the role of Wi-Fi and mobile phone frequencies on Ca2+ influx through Ca2+ channels. The EMR increases ROS production in the neurons through the activation of oxidant system including NADPH oxidase activity and nitric oxide production. These effects are accompanied by a decrease in brain tissue of enzymatic antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase together with a fall in the levels of nonenzymatic antioxidants such as glutathione and vitamin C."
