iPhone use may prevent, even reverse, effects of Alzheimer’s

EA Store: Award-winning Games“A study in mice suggests using cellphones may help prevent some of the brain-wasting effects of Alzheimer’s disease, U.S. researchers said on Wednesday,” Reuters reports.

“After long-term exposure to electromagnetic waves such as those used in cell phones, mice genetically altered to develop Alzheimer’s performed as well on memory and thinking skill tests as healthy mice, the researchers wrote in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease,” Reuters reports. “The results were a major surprise and open the possibility of developing a noninvasive, drug-free treatment for Alzheimer’s, said lead author Gary Arendash of the University of South Florida.”

“Arendash’s team exposed the mice to electromagnetic waves equivalent to those emitted by a cellphone pressed against a human head for two hours daily over seven to nine months,” Reuters reports. “At the end of that time, they found cellphone exposure erased a build-up of beta amyloid, a protein that serves as a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer’s mice showed improvement and had reversal of their brain pathology, he said.”

“There has been recent controversy about whether electromagnetic waves from cellphones cause brain cancer,” Reuters reports. “Co-author Chuanhai Cao said the mice study is more evidence that long-term cellphone use is not harmful to the brain.”

  1. iPhone use may prevent, even reverse, effects of Alzheimer’s

    MDN, in the interest of being fair and accurate, please change the headline to reflect what the article actually says: Study: Cell Phones May Prevent Brain-Wasting Effects of Alzheimer’s

    As in ANY cell phone, not just the iPhone.

  2. The iPhone not only cures Alzheimer’s, it prevents brain cancer, cleans you ear wax, styles your hair, and exfoliates your skin.

    I know it’s true because research on rodents said so, using simulated electromagnetic waves which simulated a long time period simulating talking on an iPhone with simulated mice in a computer simulation.
