People who started using mobile as teenagers and have been doing so for more than a decade are at a five-fold risk of developing a common type of brain cancer, new evidence indicates.
The Swedish study found large increased incidence of astrocytoma, the most common form of a malignant brain tumour type called glioma, in those who had been using mobiles for over 10 years.
Campaigners said the research, published in the International Journal of Oncology, was further evidence of the need to educate children of the potential dangers of talking on mobile phones.
Researchers from the University Hospital of Örebro and Umeå University examined the mobile and cordless phone use of more than 1,200 Swedes, who were diagnosed with malignant brain cancer between 1997 and 2003.
Of those, the 905 who were still alive were interviewed about their phone usage. For the remaining 346 who had died., researchers asked their relatives about their loved-ones’ telephone habits.
They then compared this to phone use information on almost 2,500 ‘controls’ who were either living and had no brain cancer, or had died of other causes. Each ‘case’ and each ‘control’ was matched for age, sex and social class.
The team concluded that using both mobiles and cordless phones led to “an increased risk for malignant brain tumours”.
People who started using mobiles as teenagers, and have done so for at least 10 years, were 4.9 times more likely to develop astrocytoma, compared to controls.
Worringly, the comparable figure for cordless home phones – which are very similar to mobiles in terms of radiation emission – was almost as high, at 3.9.
Looking at the whole group, regardless of age of first ise of mobile or cordless phone, they found that usage for more than 10 years increased the risk of all malignant tumours by 30 per cent, and astrocytomas in particular by 40 per cent.
The study comes weeks after the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organisation, stated that radiation from handsets was “possibly carcinogenic”, although it stopped short of declaring there was a clear link.
The Department of Health advises that “children and young people under 16 should be encouraged to use mobile phones for essential purposes only, and to keep calls short”.
Alasdair Philips, director of the campain group Powerwatch, said studies like the Swedish one “highlighted the need to teach our children that mobile phone use can be very dangerous to their long-term health”.
Instead of calling they should text or use “air-tube” hands-free headsets which eliminated the risk of radiation, he said.
Although an increasing number of people wear Bluetooth wireless headsets or standard wired earplugs, both still carry the risk of radiation – the former because it is itself a transmitter, and the latter because radiation can pass down the wire into the ear.
Air-tubes, such as the Air2Hear, cut radiation exposure to the brain to almost zero by replacing the last six inches of wire with a hollow tube down.
According to official cancer registeries, there are about 8,600 diagnoses of ‘primary’ brain tumour per year in the UK.
However, according to the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust, it is “widely accepted that these figures are an under-estimate of the actual numbers”.
The true number could be almost double that, the charity fears.
A spokesman said: “The human cost is alarming. Malignant primary brain tumours take more years off the average person’s life than any other cancer. They are the most significant cause of cancer death amongst men under 45 and women under 35, and approximately 500 children are diagnosed with a primary brain tumour each year.”
Neil Dickson, founder of the charity, said of the Swedish study: “The findings do give us cause for concern.
“We have contributed to a recent paediatric study in Europe and we are waiting the full results from this so together with reports such as this, it is clear to us that further research is urgently needed in this area.”
In today’s technology driven world, we rarely pause long enough to question the possible health risks associated with using modern communication devices. Almost everyone in the world today has a cell phone, in fact the statistics show there are currently over 4 billion cell phones in use today. That equates to 66% of all people have a cell phone or live with someone that does. Have you considered cell phones may be creating health hazards that may not show up for 20 years?
There are many studies showing strong correlations to cell phone usage and brain tumors! Cell phone dangers are not just isolated to brain tumors or cancer but actually can cause sleeping disorders, headaches and increased stress to the body. The disorders are caused by the radio frequencies emitted by the cell phone antennas. Cell phones transmit information to your local provider via microwave transmissions. These signals are absorbed by your body and is the basis for these health issues.
I don’t believe the worlds population should be exposed to this rather large scientific experiment! We are the proving ground for the industry to determine if there is really a health risk to using cell phones. Until there is conclusive evidence cell phone can be hazardous to our health, much of the world is just ignoring the evidence and pretending there is no risk.
There are some things we can do as consumers to help avoid the health risks of using cell phones.
• Don’t use your cell phone for extended periods of time
• Keep the phone 6″ from your ear
• Use your land line for most of your calls
• Use a headset, thus the phone is away from your body
• Text more and talk less
• Purchase a radio frequency shield for your phone
Children are more at risk than adults. They have brains that are more susceptible to these radio frequencies as their skulls are thinner and brains are smaller. This allows the radio frequencies to penetrate further into the brain. Also, children will be exposed to the emissions from phones for a longer period of time as they are young and will be using cell phones for most of their lives.
Take charge of your health! Be aware of cell phone dangers and take precautions to prevent health issues in the future.

COMMENTARY | Because the average college student seems to have Krazy Glued her cellphone to her hand, one subject I have received several research papers on from my University of the Sciences students is the possible link of cellphone use to cancer. These industrious students have almost all come to a “who knows” conclusion about the matter after reviewing the minimal sources needed for their assignments. The basic reason for this is that the etiology of a cancer is, in itself, almost impossible to determine.
(For the record, the most impressive cellphone paper I’ve received came from a student reviewing the wider danger of cellphones, including the danger of explosion if a battery in the phone is overcharged. This actually happens, and when it does, sometimes blowing out an eardrum, it’s hard to blame anything besides the phone.)
Recent “reassuring” studies by the American Cancer Society, the FDA, the FCC, and the National Cancer Institute, however, haven’t stopped an arm of the World Health from declaring Tuesday that cellphone use is “possibly carcinogenic” for humans.
Key to this discussion is the type of radiation emitted by cell phones, a non-ionizing type thought to be too weak to break chemical bonds in the brain or cause DNA damage associated with cancer. While the WHO declaration was based on no new studies, it seems to lean heavily on data released earlier this year in the Journal of the American Medical Association. That study, headed by Nora D. Volkow, involved PET scans showing a 7 percent increase in brain activity in brain areas nearest an activated cell phone’s antenna.
Classifying cellphones as “possibly carcinogenic” puts them in the same category as DDT, gasoline-engine exhaust, and coffee. (A somewhat lengthy print article in today’s Philadelphia Inquirer also notes that lead, various industrial chemicals, and pickled vegetables fall into this category.)
So, it seems to be the WHO has found a new and alarming way to say, “Hey, we don’t know.” However, Donald Berry, a biostatistics professor at the University of Texas, has said, “This is not something I worry about and it will not in any way change how I use my cellphone.” His AP interview was given via cellphone. Coming very close to Russel Howard’s song “Everything Causes Cancer,” Berry said, “Anything is a possible carcinogen.”
WEDNESDAY, June, 1 ( HealthDay News ) — Can using a cellphone increase the risk of cancer?
The World Health Organization (WHO) says that it might.
After a group of scientists from 14 countries, including the United States, analyzed peer-reviewed studies on cellphones, the team announced Tuesday that there was enough evidence to categorize personal exposure as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”
This puts cellphones in the same category as lead and auto exhaust. The WHO report noted that there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the radiation from cellphones is linked to cancer, but enough to alert consumers to a possible connection.
Dr. Michael Schulder, vice chairman of neurosurgery and director of the brain tumor institute at North Shore Long Island Jewish School of Medicine in Hempstead, N.Y., said the category into which WHO is putting cellphones is one that asserts there may be a concern. “That’s fairly weak as a concern goes,” he addded.
According to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which regulates radiation from cellphones, “there is no scientific evidence to date that proves that wireless phone usage can lead to cancer or a variety of other health effects, including headaches, dizziness or memory loss.”
But, Schulder said, “commonsense would tell you that since a cellphone is a microwave generator and emits radiation, it has the potential to alter DNA. And it should be used in moderation.”
Proving a causal relation between cellphone use and brain tumors is very hard to do, Schulder added. “It [would] take following many patients over many years to try to draw a connection,” he said. “Even if a connection exists, it will be very hard to prove.”
That’s partly because the radiation emitted by cellphone includes very low level microwave radiation, a type of non-ionizing radiation which is absorbed near the skin. It’s not ionizing radiation such as that emitted by an X-ray or CT scan. So-called ionizing radiation — a known cause of cancer — has enough energy to break down chemical bonds by knocking electrons off atoms or molecules (thus “ionizing” them and making them unstable).
However, to be on the safe side, Schulder recommends not speaking for long periods with the phone held to the ear. In addition, he suggests using an earpiece or speaker whenever possible. Both will keep the phone away from your head, he pointed out.
“If you use these methods, then any risk of brain tumor formation from the phone will be essentially eliminated,” Schulder said.
Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society, added: “Given that the evidence remains uncertain, it is up to each individual to determine what changes they wish to make, if any, after weighing the potential benefits and risks of using a cellphone.”
If some feel the potential risk outweighs the benefit, they can take actions, including limiting cellphone use or using a headset, he said. “Limiting use among children also seems reasonable in light of this uncertainty,” Brawley said.
“On the other hand,” Brawley said, “if someone is of the opinion that the absence of strong scientific evidence on the harms of cellphone use is reassuring, they may take different actions, and it would be hard to criticize that,” he said.
Brawley also noted that many common exposures — even coffee drinking –are classified by WHO as potentially concerning.
For those who want to know how much radiation their phone emits, the FCC recommends contacting the manufacturer.
The FCC noted that earpieces will indeed “significantly reduce the rate of energy absorption” in a user’s head, but that if the phone is attached to the waist or another part of the body, “then that part of the body will absorb [radiofrequency] energy.”
Besides ear pieces, there are other devices (such as metal cellphone shields) that claim to protect users from cellphone radiation or reduce it, but the FCC is skeptical of them.
“Studies have shown that these devices generally do not work as advertised,” an FCC official statement cautioned. “In fact, they may actually increase radio frequency absorption in the head due to their potential to interfere with proper operation of the phone, thus forcing it to increase power to compensate,” the agency stated.
Another expert, Dr. Roberto Heros, a professor of neurological surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, has a different take on cellphone safety.
“Our culture has become a slave to the cellphone,” he said. “We feel we cannot be out of touch for one minute, and we have to be connected by the cellphone.”
Heros thinks people should limit the time they spend on the devices. But, he said, “they should use it when necessary. They should not [hesitate to] make calls that are necessary, because of any fear or panic about radiation,” he said.
“If you really want to save lives, then don’t use the cellphone while you’re driving,” Heros said. “Not because of brain cancer, but because of immediate death from an accident.”

After the World Health Organisation (WHO) issued a warning that people who used mobile phones too much could face the risk of brain tumour, the Telecommunications Consumer Protection Institute (TCPI) said yesterday that Thais faced an even bigger risk because they slept with their cellphone placed near the headboard.
TCPI director Prawit Leesathapornwongsa said the WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer study that cellphones had a “2B” classification, or that they could cause cancer. He said the study also found that people using their mobile phones for more than 1,640 hours faced a greater risk of developing glioma brain cancer.
Those using a bluetooth hands-free device were 100 times less exposed to electromagnetic waves, while those using headphones faced 10 per cent less risk, he said. He also warned that these devices should not stuck in the ear while not being used. In addition, 3G phones are said to release 100 times less radioactive energy than the GSM phones, he added.
Prawit said a poll conducted in February found that Thai users were more exposed to radiation from cellphones because 64.5 per cent placed them at the top of their bed while sleeping, and 41.6 per cent carried their phone in their pocket. He urged people to keep their mobile phones away from them when they are not in use.

Epidemiological studies, performed by simply different researchers using different methods, show some evidence of an greater risk connected with tumors among people that use cell phones.
– In 1998, Medical professional. Ken Rothman connected with Eidemiology Means, Inc. throughout Newton, Bulk., did a study showing in which users connected with handheld cell phones have in excess of twice raise the risk of death from human brain cancer compared to do automobile phone users–whose antennas are mounted on the body from the car, far stripped away from the users’ brains.
– In 1998, Joshua Muscat, an investigation scientist in the American Well being Foundation, showed throughout his review a doubling from the risk connected with developing neuro-epithelial tumors on the lateral side of serotonin levels among mobile phone users, particularly privately of the skull where mobile phone antennas usually are held in the course of calls.
– Muscat also showed throughout another review that individuals who have used cell phones for six to eight years or maybe more have the 50-percent enhance in chance of developing acoustic neuroma, a civilized tumor from the nerve in which controls listening to and extends in the ear towards the brain. Acoustic neuromas may cause hearing loss and can be life-threatening in the event that untreated.
This was confirmed within a separate review in Stockholm, Sweden by simply Anders Ahlbom throughout 2004 along with sponsored with the World Well being Organization (THAT), which discovers that individuals who have used cell phones, this time period for at the very least 10 decades, may provide an increased chance of developing acoustic neuroma.
– Within a study also requested by simply WHO, experts headed by simply Dr. Lennart Hardell from the Orebro Infirmary in Sweden reviewed 1, 617 people aged concerning 20 along with 80 who had previously been diagnosed with a brain tumor between 1997 along with 2000. These were then when compared to healthy persons. Those that used cell phones at under 10 decades faced the 20% increased risk connected with developing human brain cancer. But for many who used all of them for greater decade raise the risk was 80% increased. The review also identified that tumours have been 2. 5 times prone to be about the same side from the head because phone happened. The cancer from the auditory lack of feeling, accoustic neuroma, showed a greater increase–3. 5 times greater chance.
CELL PHONE RADIATION SERVING AND RESPONSE
All studies mentioned showed an increase in mobile phone radiation publicity also increases the likelihood of the damaging effect taking place.
In Repacholi’s review of these pests, the chance of lymphoma increased significantly the longer the these pests were exposed to the radio stations waves.
Inside research function done by simply Tice, Catch, and Roti Roti, the risks of innate damage seeing that measured by simply micronuclei sourcing increased as the quantity of radiation greater.
In the three epidemoiological studies–two by simply Muscat then one by Hardell–the chance of growths was greater in the areas from the brain near the place that the cell phone happened.
In Salford’s review, the higher rays exposure level the subjects were exposed to, the more damage had been apparent in the blood vessels in the brain and also the neurons.
THIS BIG CANCER MALIGNANCY PICTURE
The actual test tubing studies by simply Tice along with Hook; the mouse review by Repacholoi along with Selford; and also the epidemiological studies by Rothman, Muscat, and Hardell most agree for the reason that they suggest an elevated risk connected with cancer among mobile phone users. They can fit together to make the beginnings of the picture in which everyone can easily see. They perhaps don’t form the complete picture however, but you’ll find enough already in position to see there’s cause fo real public wellbeing concern about mobile phone safety.
According to Dr. Carlo, “The huge picture is usually disturbingly crystal clear. There is often a definite risk the radiation plume that emanates from a mobile phone antenna may cause cancer and also other health problems. It is often a risk in which affects vast sums of people all over the world. It is often a risk that needs to be seen along with understood by simply all that use cell phones for them to take all the appropriate along with available steps to defend themselves–and especially to defend young children whose skulls remain growing and who are the most liable to the risks of the radiation. “
MUCH MORE PIECES RETURNING
– In 2000, a workforce of Sydney researchers released a methodical hypothesis about how precisely mobile phone radiation reasons cancer. The statement claims the radiation produced by cell phones causes on-going stress towards the body tissues, causing those to give off ‘heat distress proteins (HSP). ‘ The actual human tissues sometimes launch these meats in response to injury or maybe infection.
A really chronic activation from the heat distress response affects the traditional regulation connected with cells, which you could end up cancer.
– In 2002, cell biologist Fiorenzo Marinelli along with his team with the National Study Council throughout Bologna, France, exposed leukemia tissues to steady radio waves comparable to that of cell phones. The exposed cells had a higher rate connected with death versus controls initially, but after further publicity, a interested thing occured: instead connected with more tissues dying, the exposed cells have been replicating furiously when compared to the controls. Genes in which trigger tissues to increase in numbers were started up in a higher proportion from the cells. The actual cancer, though briefly usual back, had be aggressive. Marinelli suspects the radiation might initially injury DNA, and this interferes while using biochemical signals in a manner that ultimately sparks the tissues to multiply a lot quicker.
SO EXACTLY WHY ARE CELLPHONES STILL ALL-AROUND?
Now because of the mounting research, the mobile phone industry nonetheless maintains the position that cell phones are safe and have absolutely even commenced marketing towards children. The governments have been slow throughout stepping in warn persons of any kind of danger from using cell phones. Fortunately, health officials and experts in many European international locations are taking the very first steps, having granted public safety measures to mothers and fathers urging extreme care about kids and cell phones.
If the prior environmental difficulties involving cigarette smoking, asbestos, along with lead usually are any sign, it will take years and in many cases decades to build up the quantity of evidence that will produce a particular ruling. In the matter of cigarette cigarette smoking, it took two full decades of review and 100 years of buyer use to gather enough data to meet research standards to show the requirement for the You. S. Physician General’s alert label upon cigarette packs. Some specialists say that with regards to cell cell phones, it is not going to take in which long seeing that data are coming in at the faster tempo. But currently the specialists can just urge individuals to exercise extreme care.
Replication connected with research is usually another trouble. A review that is developed with a fresh finding generally isn’t going to gain quick acceptance in the scientific group or the wireless market unless one more research lab continues to be able in order to replicate the effort and the findings. A has smartly perpetuated the position by simply creating a illusion connected with responsible followup by always calling intended for more analysis.
When Medical professional. Salford released his review in 2003 demonstrating that rat human brain neurons have been dying from exposure to cellphone the radiation, he warned there may be similar effects in humans that over time might lead to degenerative diseases from the brain. His review was prepared off with the industry like a “novel” finding that must be replicated.
But achieving the methodical standard connected with replication can be complicated. Salford states if studies aren’t completely replicated, giving an apples-to-apples assessment, there’s wiggle room in order to dispute follow-up conclusions. Research studies require capital, and the wireless market, after Medical professional. Carlo’s revelations, have been reluctant to get money directly into more extensive research. Concerning governments, yet again many Western governments usually are taking the responsible course by capital research, however the U. Utes. and North america are lagging inadequately.
In 1999, CNN’s Jimmy King yet again featured a guy who produced a multimillion greenback lawsuit against mobile phone manufacturers. Now the man, a Baltimore neurologist, was himself clinically determined to have brain cancer–again on the side from the head in which he placed his mobile phone. The go well with was again dismissed, nevertheless, and the man died shortly afterwards.
According to WHO statement, 0. 1 billion dollars people have got died from tobacco easy use in the twentieth century, and 10 times as much will die in the 21st millennium. No is suggesting that cell phones could cause as much casualties, but accomplish we really want to wait and pay attention to?
Unlike cigarette smoking, the mobile phone has become being an indispensable a part of our lifestyles as television and laptop or computer. It has enabled us to generate a gigantic leap in how we communicate collectively and continues to be credited widely with protecting people’s lifestyles in disaster situations. Mobile devices are here to stay, and perhaps rightly consequently.
The question is just not how to quit people from by using this ubiquitous device but instead steps to make it less dangerous. The first step always is always to admit there is a problem, hence the and the federal government have in order to acknowledge the medical risks inherent while using present technology. This way we are able to all get the proper solutions we may more enjoy the advantages of its make use of without sacrificing your health along with wellbeing.

In 1993, a guy filed case against the mobile phone industry, claiming in which his partner died coming from a brain tumor attributable to her repeated use of the mobile phone. The cancer was about the same side from the head in which she placed her mobile phone and had been shaped much like the cell phone antenna. The situation got popular media consideration and had been featured throughout CNN’s Jimmy King indicate.
Although the claim had been dismissed with the court as a result of lack connected with sufficient research, it had been a pr nightmare for that wireless market. It also marked the start of the global search for a definitive answer to the dilemma: are cell phones safe or maybe not? Will it cause cancer and also other degenerative ailments? Brain cancer malignancy is in place 25% since cell phones became well-known. Every 12 months, there usually are 183, 000 more cases the united states alone. Some wellbeing experts say you will find there’s link with mobile phone use, but perhaps there is proof?
In an effort to diffuse the negative publicity in the high-profile litigation, the mobile phone industry by itself funded the $25 mil dollar analysis program in order to prove that cell phones are safe. After 6 decades of demanding research, nevertheless, the results are not what we were looking at looking intended for. Dr. George Carlo, the chief research scientist from the program, found research that cell phones pose some health risks, possibly even cancer.
The very first evidence connected with cancer web page link that shook the mobile phone industry got in 1997. Medical professional. Michael Repacholi along with his colleagues in the Royal Adelaide Infirmary in South Australia claimed that long-term exposure to the sort of radiation that comes from digital cell phones caused an increase in the occurrence connected with lymphoma throughout mice. The review received popular international mass media attention as it was the very first time that cancer continues to be from the cell phone within a well-conducted review.
THE RED FLAGS: SOLVING THIS CANCER BIGGER PICTURE
In order to exhibit a web page link between mobile phone radiation along with cancer, let’s have a look at several studies Dr. Carlo investigated that manufactured him hit the whistle, so to speak. These red-flag findings provide you with the pieces in which fit together to make the cancer malignancy picture:
– DNA Destruction in Human being Blood Scientific tests
– Breakdown in the Blood-Brain Hurdle
– Scientific tests of Growths in Folks who Use Mobile devices
– Scientific tests of Mobile phone Radiation Medication dosage and Response
DNA HARM IN HUMAN BEING BLOOD
All growths and most cancers are the consequence of genetic injury. Most typically that injury includes the formation connected with micronuclei–fragments connected with chromosomes in which form membranes around themselves and search under the microscope seeing that additional nuclei throughout blood tissues (which ordinarily have just a single nucleus). The connection between micronuclei along with cancer is really strong in which doctors all over the world test with regards to presence to spot patients prone to develop cancer malignancy. The presence of micronuclei indicates the cells cannot properly fix broken DNA. This lack of is considered to be an indication of increased chance of developing cancer.
In December 1998, Drs. Ray Tice along with Graham Catch of Built-in Laboratory Techniques in Vermont have shown that bloodstream cells exposed to cell phone radiation undergo genetic damage as micronuclei. In their studies, DNA along with chromosome injury in people white bloodstream cells took place when exposed to signals from all kinds of phones–analog, digital camera, and PERSONAL COMPUTERS. Damage had been shown even from signals occurring at a SAR level below the government’s “safety” standard.
Using different techniques, the earlier mentioned finding had been confirmed by simply Dr. Joseph Roti Roti connected with Washington College in St. Louis throughout 2000. His analysis showed in which human bloodstream cells exposed to radiation on wireless phone frequencies did indeed acquire genetic injury, in the proper execution of micronuclei. This finding received plenty of notice simply because Dr. Roti Roti is often a prominent scientist would you hiw function under capital by Motorola Inc.
It has a extremely serious inference. If mobile phone radiation promotes the sourcing of micronuclei throughout blood tissues, and micronuclei are considered to be “biological markers” intended for cancer, then according to these studies alone mobile phone use might be said to improve the chance of cancer malignancy.

For many years scientists, doctors, average citizens of earth, and others have seen and heard of the health risks associated with cell phone use and how possibly brain tumors and other forms of other cancers and illnesses can be related directly to using them.
Just this year the Interphone study, an international research project that has been ongoing for many years, finally released data that backs the findings of others that said cell phones are dangerous for everyone and should be of concern to anyone, especially users of more than average use.
Even with that information, CEFALO a case study conducted in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Switzerland had been working on determining if children from 7-19 years of age who were diagnosed with a brain tumor between 2004 and 2008 were related to cell phone use. They just released their report today in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute “Mobile Phone Use and Brain Tumors in Children and Adolescents: A Multicenter Case–Control Study”
The report was summarized by the group as not showing any significant causes of cell phone use in children who used cell phones and happen to have brain tumors. Yet everyone who actually read the report said they seemed to disagree with the summary of it that was presented to the public. The paper will appear in the August 17th issue ofJNCI. It is reported by many in the industry that the CEFALO study fell short of meeting its necessary 550 cases of children to study versus the 352 that were. A significant statistical difference would have been seen according to the reports. Even members of the CEFALO study, Martin Roosli and Robert Tarone, said they believe there is some systematic error and if asked to do this kind of study again that they would not do it and prefer to do a prospective studies case in which it would make more sense to clarify the data. They stated that was a lot of the confusion in the Interphone study that was previously released already and saw many headaches with agreements on the data.
Practically no doctor or researcher actually believes these studies are representing the data correctly and believe the other types of future studies will once and for all put the matter to rest, as least for recognizing the need at a national or worldwide safety regulation stance to make it clear what is really being seen.
Doctors and researchers who see real life data do recommend that children under 12 should not use cell phones except for an emergency. Keeping it turned off until they need to use it is the best way. Although most people know children unsupervised will more than likely try to use them. Once the data is 100% settled and not misconstrued by the telecommunications industries, safety, and regulatory parties, even then it will take time to convince children and parents that they should take precautionary measures.
It is known the amount of radiation that enters a child’s brain from a cell phone is double the amount that enters adults during cell phone usage. The questions have centered around was the type of radiation dangerous and that has been proven. The only thing not completely settled is a study showing the two related. As mentioned, for over 10-20 years now telecommunications companies, governments, safety and health organizations have been infiltrated with lobbyist who have been able to hold back or prevent the studies from releasing data at all or with misinformation. The responsibility, as has been for many years, is in the hands of the everyday citizen to monitor these studies and take matters in their own hands, just try to minimize the cell phone use in those hands.
