The radiation given off from mobile phones may protect against Alzheimer’s disease, a study has found.

The study conducted on 96 mice, most of which had been genetically altered to develop a marker of Alzheimer’s disease known as beta-amyloid plaques in their brains, found radiation can actually protect memories, the BBC reports.

When exposure to phone radiation started when the Alzheimer’s mice were young adults, before signs of memory impairment were apparent, their cognitive ability was protected, according to Florida Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centre scientists.

The research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease is in its initial stages and is yet to be trialled on people with Alzheimer’s disease.
