Cell phone exposure may protect against (and reverse) Alzheimer’s disease

If you spend countless hours on your mobile phone every day, you may have a new excuse for it. Thanks to a surpring new study tested on mice, researchers now have initial evidence that long-term exposure to electromagnetic waves associated with cell phone use may actually protect against, and even reverse, Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists discovered that exposing old Alzheimer’s mice to electromagnetic waves generated by cell phones erased brain deposits of the harmful protein beta-amyloid, in addition to preventing the protein’s build-up in younger Alzheimer’s mice. The sticky brain plaques formed by abnormal accumulation of beta-amyloid are a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. Most current treatments against Alzheimer’s try to target beta-amyloid.

So, there you go. Cell phones may give you cancer, but at least you’ll completely remember it.
