Research links Alzheimer's cure to mobile phone use

A new study released recently contradicts previous fears surrounding links between mobile phone use and Alzheimer's disease, suggesting instead that it might be possible to prevent or even cure the condition by talking on a mobile phone.

The research used mice that had been genetically engineered to exhibit typical symptoms of the disease. These rodents were placed near an antenna emitting a mobile phone signal. After prolonged exposure to the electromagnetic waves, the mice had effectively been cured of their afflictions, with all of their mental faculties restored.

According to the scientists, it is mobile signals' ability to break down and eradicate a hazardous protein contained in the brain of the Alzheimer's test subjects that led to the cure.

One slight downside to this latest news is that it is believed human sufferers would have to use a mobile phone constantly for many years to see similar effects.

However, the research should hopefully mitigate previous suggestions that Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease and multiple sclerosis might be caused or exacerbated by prolonged mobile phone use.
