Cell Phones Bad For Kids Health
“New Study Shows Cell Phones Exceed FCC Exposure Limits By As Much As Double For Kids”
A scholarly article on cell phone safety published recently in the journal Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine reports that cell phones used in the shirt or pants pocket exceed Federal Communications Commission ( FCC ) guidelines and that children absorb TWICE as much radiation from phones as do adults.
The paper entitled “ Exposure limits: the underestimated exposure of cell phone radiation, especially children”, notes that the industry-designed process for evaluating microwave radiation from phones results in children absorbing twice the cellphone radiation in their heads, up to TRIPLE in their brain’s hippocampus and hypothalamus, greater absorption in their eyes and as much as 10 times more in their bone marrow when compared to adults.
The paper’s authors include three team members from the Environmental Health Trust: Devra Davis, PhD, MPH, Lloyd Morgan, Senior Science Fellow and Ronald B. Herberman, MD.
