In addition to the improvements in Alzheimer's researchers noted that all the mice died of large brain tumors one month after the study completed.

Tumors are at least in theory treatable. As of right now, Alzheimer's is not. I'll take the possibility of a tumor with the reduction of the potential for Alzheimer's.

Yay,lets eliminate the dumb people by writing an article that's bad, and tell them it's actually good for them!
Since we're a hardware site, why not use cellphones?

Heck, next time we're going to write about how a tennis elbow can be prevented by playing the Wii for 9 hours straight every day for 3 months!

One of these days we should just stop with this cell phone disease nonsense and cut to the chase The Onion style: 'Cell Phone Use Could Increase Communication'

Some things are neither all good or all bad. Actually, that's true about just about everything.

They aren't trying to tell you this type of radiation is good or bad, they are telling you specifically it was effective in blocking amyloid plague dementia.

By the way, the tumors that are about 3.5x more common with cell phone use is the non-cancerous type. Tumor and cancer are not synonyms. Not that any tumor is a good thing, of course.

Beyond the cell phone issue, this does give further insight into Alzheimer's Disease. It doesn't give a lot answers, but it does give a pointer to which questions need to be asked. And if you don't ask the right questions, you aren't going to useful answers.

That was a University of South Florida (The S in USF = South, which is not the same as UF) study, you need to correct the first sentence.

Mental games and puzzles also seem to help to prevent Alzheimer's. So do a twofer. Play chess by cellphone. :D

I know ;( they purposefully genetically mutate them for science but that seems to be the only way to test for cures for things.

AHHH, but did they have a control group of mice? And were the researchers blinded? Perhaps the extra attention given to them and the fact that they were living together in a novel environment was enough to promote mental/cognitive stimulation, to enhance memory. Comparable to how mice who have an exercise wheel have higher new neuronal growth rates perhaps.
