3G Side Effects

Techdirt reports a Dutch study's results via Reuters, which concludes that 3G basestations cause headaches and nausea. However, "cognitive functions such as memory and response times were boosted by both 3G signals and the current signals, the study found. It said people became more alert when they were exposed to both." (my emphasis added re: the 2G signals -- I've always thought these things weren't exactly good for my health.)

More alert? Can I just have a large Cappuccino instead? It sounds like the techie version of a popular game show: Hey, I'll take "Brainboost and Hurlies" for $500. Yikes.
