Of mice and men ... and cell phones!

Gotta start off 2010 with  positive news!! Good findings beyond coffee ... apparently cellphone radiation, much-maligned in the past as being potentially carcinogenic, has been identified as being a great way to protect against alzheimers!!

Florida scientists have discovered that phone radiation actually protected the memories of  mice programmed to get alzheimer's disease!

If older Alzheimer's mice already showing memory problems were exposed to the electro-magnetic waves, their memory impairment disappeared.
The mice in the study were exposed to 2 hours of (cell phone) radiation a day for 9 months!

The exciting discovery is that electro-magnetic field exposure could be an effective, non-invasive and drug-free way to prevent and treat Alzheimer's disease in humans. Apparently, these mice mimic some of the symptoms of Alzheimer's in people, so this is hopefully for mice and men! Further, this could also help treat traumatic brain injuries, as in soldiers during war!

We don't recommend spending 24 hours a day on a mobile phone - we don't know the long-term effects, and bills could go through the roof.
In other words... get off your Nexus One after a couple of hours!
