A SURVEY by the people at has listed the mobile phones that leak the highest levels of radiation.

Out of ten, Motorola seems to have clocked the top nine with radiation levels of between 1.58 and 1.51.

These figures have not yet been proven to make you glow in the dark, cause your hair fall out, your testicles go green or think the Citroen Berlingo is a nice car.

In fact all these levels are well within the safety limits, which are unlikely to change while doctors violently disagree about how dangerous mobile phones are.

To be fair to Motorola, it did manage to get two phones into's list of least radioactive too.

The list of shame runs as follows:
1. Motorola Slvr L6 1.58
