Mobile Radiation a Cure to Alzheimer’s? NO.
When a popularly recognized journal says that cell phone radiation might actually be good for me, I’d buy it. I’d call more friends and talk longer to my relatives. But it turns out that this respected journal actually got it all wrong. The only time it is 100% acceptable to use your cell phone is when you have to call the doctor. Rumor had it, that cell phone vibration were protecting or even curing mankind from Alzheimer’s? Here is why you should NOT believe that. Read on.
A study was conducted using mice, exposed for cell radiations for up to 2 hours a day, regularly for nine months. The results surprised renowned researcher Dr. Gary Arendash of the University of South Florida in Tampa.
In this study, Dr. Arendash exposed both normal mice and mice that were genetically altered to develop an Alzheimer’s-like syndrome to the radiation that is generated by cell phones. The astonishing result was that in both types of laboratory mice, cell phone radiation appeared to improve cognitive function. In the Alzheimer’s-like strain, it even seemed to reverse the defining characteristic of the illness.
Arendash’s interesting experiment still needs to be replicated by other researchers before it can be seen as a solid, demonstrable fact. A number of studies using mice and rats have found that cell phone radiation harms rather than improves learning and cognitive function. Many, though not all, studies have found that in both rats and mice chronic exposure to cell phone radiation causes deficits in learning and memory in spatial tasks.
Of course, we all want to hope Dr. Gary Arendash’s findings would relieve Alzheimer’s sufferers from the sticky amyloid protein in their brain. If using a cellphone is all it takes, doctors would recommend social media as a cure. However, until then do know that your cell phone will not protect you from developing Alzheimer’s disease.
