Memory, Magnetite and the Air We Breathe

A publication has suggested that our memory may revolve round biogenic magnetite  within the brain.  Biogenic magnetite has been detected in cells throughout the human body, and especially in brain cells. The largest quantities are found in the membranes surrounding the brain, known as the pia and dura, and they contain up to 100 million biogenic crystals. According to one theory, this might act as either a shield for the brain; another possibility, I suggest, is as a transducer network for reception of magnetic and electromagnetic signals (including the schumann resonance frequencies, the geomagnetic field, tectonic piezo-electric fields, and empathic or telepathic detection of brainwaves) Human sensitivity to magnetic signals has been seen as low as 10’s of nanoteslas.

Nano sized spherical microscopic particles of inorganic magnetite have been found in samples of human brain tissues, the count per gram is above 100 million in some samples. The origin of these particles is suspected to be from automobile engines (combustion chambers), and brakes. Platinum particles of the same type, presumably from catalytic converters have also been detected. Serious speculation has been proposed, that this could be a significant factor for the development of alzheimers disease: the nano sized particles, it has been proposed, pass up the nasal passages and directly into the brain via the olfactory nerves, . They suspect that free radial generation occurs within the brain from exposure to the billions of magnetite nanospheres, this form of inorganic iron is very toxic. In addition, the magnetic fields of the brain can be confused by this form of inorganic iron, corresponding with memory issues, and disturbances of other mental functions.

Electrostatic air purifiers, especially when combined with hepa filters can remove air borne pollutants, even those that are microscopic. An additional filter utilizing a magnetic field could be included to reduce nano-sized magnetite particles. The best solution is to avoid breathing polluted air. Unfortunately, this not possible for most modern people in city environments, and air purification technologies look like the only option.
