    If you’re a mouse using a cell phone you’ve got it made. In mice prone to an animal form of Alzheimer's disease, long-term exposure to electromagnetic radiation typical of cell phones slowed and reversed the course of the illness. Cell phone exposure, begun in early adulthood, protects the memory of mice otherwise destined to develop Alzheimer's symptoms. And the electromagnetic waves generated by cell phones actually reversed memory impairment in old Alzheimer's mice. A similar exposure in normal mice -- for two hours a day over seven to nine months -- improved their cognitive abilities compared with controls reports the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, which is the research journal of the Alzheimer's Association.

    Rreactions to the study ranged from "interesting" to "nonsense” because it's too early to say whether the findings have any relevance to humans. Even science published in reputable journals can turn out to be wrong, adding "extreme caution is necessary until this outcome has been confirmed independently in other laboratories. And even if the science is correct, "humans are not just big mice, and we must always be cautious in extrapolating results from mice to man."

    The report comes almost exactly two years after researchers at the University of Sunderland, in England, said they had shown that infrared light could improve cognition in mice.That report led to the development of the so-called "Alzheimer's helmet," aimed at slowing or reversing the disease in humans. Whether that works has not been shown yet.
