Cell Phones for Brain Health?

Just when I thought I was done, a friend posts this article about cell phones fighting Alzheimer's Disease. This goes firmly in the category of things I wasn't expecting to read. Even when I clicked it, I assumed that it was a human study that would focus on the cognitive behaviors of older adults with and without cell phones, but no, it's an animal study. The mice were exposed to radio waves and it kept them from building up beta-amyloid deposits. It turns out what many assumed would cause cancer may actually be saving us from a miserable end. Weird.

And also, science is awesome.
