Cellphones help prevent Alzheimer's

Just last night, I watched Thank You for Smoking, a fantastic and hilarious movie which ends with the sultan of spin, Nick Naylor, telling the CEO's of the major cellphone companies that they have nothing to worry about brain damage from cellphones, with him on their side.

Well, it seems like here in the real world, they might have something to worry about.

Why?

Because cellphones have been shown to prevent Alzheimer's.

Yes, prevent.

The study, which is published today in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, used mice bred for their susceptibility to Alzheimer's, and exposed some of the 96 mice involved to electromagnetic fields for an hour a day for between seven and nine months. Rather to the surprise of those involved the mice exposed to the field performed better in memory tests than the control, and even when the disease had developed performance could be improved by repeated exposure.

This is obviously good news in the fight against Alzheimer's... but why is it bad news for the cellphone companies?
Well, it looks like there is clear evidence cellphones are having an effect on the brain. Which is bad thing. The cellphone companies have been subtly fighting this conclusion for years, and really, if you spend a lot of time on the phone, you should be using bluetooth.
