Cellphone Radiation Actually Good For You?
There has been many studies and reports released by various groups and organizations warning about the danger of cellphone radiation. Usually these reports say cellphone radiation can cause cancer and other hoopla. Now a new study by the University of South Florida's Alzheimer's Disease Research Center says that cellphone radiation may actually boost normal memory and protect against or reverse Alzheimer's disease.
The study involved 96 mice, most of which were genetically engineered to develop Alzheimer's disease, as well as some with normal brains.
This is pretty interesting. Lead author Gary Arendash says "it surprised us to find that cell phone exposure, begun in early adulthood, protects the memory of mice otherwise destined to develop Alzheimer's symptoms." What's more is electromagnetic waves generated by cellphones actually reversed memory loss in old Alzheimer's mice.
For once, a positive study about cellphone radiation. Hopefully if this is true, all of us BlackBerry addicts will never develop Alzheimer's disease.
It's nice to see that bad science can come down on both sides of the issue.
Found another article on this on EG, but what is that last sentence there?
Quote: Tests on mice still found cellphones to be an impairement while driving.
Hm. Can't hold it off: Reminds me a bit of this Kia Soul car ad:
Don't get me wrong, this disease is one of most horrible ones - I really hope, they find a reason and then a cure for all these CNS related illnesses soon!
