Study suggests tinfoil *amplifies* government radio frequencies

I can hear dozens of conspiracy theorists going *oh shit* right now.

Abstract (excerpt):

We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find…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.

MIT study

A few possibilities to consider:

1) Since tinfoil craze began, government agents with either a sense of humor, or evil nature, altered their frequencies to be amplified by tinfoil?
2) Government agents have paid MIT students to ‘produce a study’ that will encourage desired subjects to remove their tinfoil hats?
3) Tinfoil-hat wearing individuals chose poorly in their means of protection from the start?
