wtea t-2, cell phones a good thing, planking


there are 2 days left before the austin walk to
end azheimers

you may donate and or join my team organicgreendoctor.com

think that after reading this recent article that i will definitely
start using my smart phone more often and try to use it
on both ears

little did they know that science would explain why the new
phones are really called smart phones

in alzheimers disease the body builds up a substance called
beta amyloid that causes plaque buildup
this plaque causes the nerve cells to die
thus the person gets alzheimers disease

also in alzheimers damaged nerve cells there is a problem
with glucose metabolism
cell phone use increases the glucose metabolism in the brain
could that be how this works

at the university of south florida researchers did a study
that suggests that prolonged use of cell phones may prevent
or actually reverse the effect of alzheimers disease

the mice who were genetically programmed to get
alzheimers disease like i am were exposed to cell phone
radiation for 2 hours a day for several months

for those mice who were already having symptoms their
memory improved and
for those mice with amyloid buildup up in the brain the
amyloid buildup disappeared
for those mice without symptoms or disease yet they
retained normal memory

so guess ill stop texting from now on
and will only use my cell phone to do calls
must remember to use it on both sides
and will have to call more people now to increase
my cell phone usage (will use mobile to mobile so i wont
use up all my minutes)

if this is true a generation of teenagers will not get alzheimers

and it gives a new meaning to the word smartphone

planking when planking wasnt cool
