Digital News Report – In a strange twist on an important subject, it was learned that the use of cell phones may lower a person’s risk for Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, “long term” exposure to the electromagnetic waves given off by cell phones may “protect” against the disease (see video below).
Research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease showed that old mice exposed to the radiation erased deposits of the harmful protein beta-amyloid. Younger mice also benefited. Mobile phone waves prevented the build up of the proteins in younger mice.
The mice were destined to develop Alzheimer’s symptoms, according to lead author Gary Arendash, PhD, USF Research Professor at the Florida ADRC. The 96 mice were genetically altered to develop beta-amyloid plaques and memory problems mimicking Alzheimer’s disease.
“It was even more astonishing that the electromagnetic waves generated by cell phones actually reversed memory impairment in old Alzheimer’s mice,” Arendash added.
