On the Effectiveness of Aluminium Foil Helmets: An Empirical Study</span>
Earlier this year, MIT engineers conducted an empirical study on the efficacy of aluminum foil helmets to block mind control rays. They've published the detailed results of their experiments online. From the abstract:
Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified. These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC).Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We theorize that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.

Here is the conclusion:
The helmets amplify frequency bands that coincide with those allocated to the US government between 1.2 Ghz and 1.4 Ghz. According to the FCC, These bands are supposedly reserved for ''radio location'' (ie, GPS), and other communications with satellites (see, for example, [3]). The 2.6 Ghz band coincides with mobile phone technology. Though not affiliated by government, these bands are at the hands of multinational corporations.

It requires no stretch of the imagination to conclude that the current helmet craze is likely to have been propagated by the Government, possibly with the involvement of the FCC. We hope this report will encourage the paranoid community to develop improved helmet designs to avoid falling prey to these shortcomings

Definitely something to worry about.
Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean that there not out to get you!

I quote:

The 2.6 Ghz band coincides with mobile phone technology.

That's mostly wrong. Current mobile phone technology operates on typically four bands GLOBALLY. These are: 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1.8 GHz, and 1.9 GHz. (This is the source.)

Where that 2.6 Ghz comes from, I do not know. As well, the proper annotation for the unit of measurement is GHz, not Ghz.

Due to these discrepancies, I would question your source, or the entire content of the article.
