Children and Cell Phones
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to any users of cell
phones from RF exposure, including children and teenagers. The
steps adults can take to reduce RF exposure apply to children and
teenagers as well.
Reduce the amount of time spent on the cell phone;
Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between the head
and the cell phone.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised
that children be discouraged from using cell phones at all. For
example, The Stewart Report from the United Kingdom made such a
recommendation in December 2000. In this report, a group of
independent experts noted that no evidence exists that using a cell
phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their
recommendation to limit cell phone use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any
health hazard exists.
