BBC News today says that after all the concern over possible damage to health from using mobile phones, scientists have found a potential benefit from radiation.

They are now testing more frequencies to see if they can get better results.

The study by the Florida Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centre is published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
