Scientists finally have found a potential benefit from radiation which can be put to good use. A new study has revealed that mobile phone radiations may protect against and even reverse Alzheimer's disease.

Researchers at the University of South Florida conducted a study that exposed 96 mice, most of whom had been genetically altered to develop the Alzheimer's disease as they aged, to electromagnetic waves generated by mobile phones.

The mice were zapped with 918MHz of frequency twice a day for one hour each time over a period of seven to nine months - the equivalent of several decades in humans, the Herald Sun reported.

The study revealed that in older mice with Alzheimer's, long-standing exposure to the electromagnetic fields caused deposits in the brain of beta-amyloid, a protein fragment that accumulates in the brain of Alzheimer's sufferers to form the disease's signature plaques, to be erased.

Memory impairment in the older mice also vanished, the study showed.

Young adult mice with no apparent signs of memory impairment were protected against Alzheimer's disease after several months of exposure to the mobile phone waves.

And the memory levels of normal mice with no genetic inclination for Alzheimer's disease were enhanced after exposure to the electromagnetic waves.

"Frankly, I started this work a few years ago with a hypothesis that the electromagnetic fields from a mobile phone would be deleterious to Alzheimer's mice," said lead author Gary Arendash, a professor at the University of Southern Florida.

Based on the findings in mice, the researchers anticipate that electromagnetic field exposure could be an effective, non-invasive and drug-free way to prevent and cure Alzheimer's disease in humans.
