CHILDREN have been warned to text, rather than talk, on their mobile phones by the federal Government's radiation safety watchdog.
The official caution was issued last week by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency, following a decade-long study into the health effects of using mobile phones…
An Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association spokesman said: "There is no known basis for singling out children for concern."
Greens senator Bob Brown said a health warning should be issued to all mobile users.
"There is no proof mobile phone use is safe," he said.
Mobile phones and Wi-Fi may be a bigger threat to the health of our children than we’re being told. One government report, prepared in France, suggests both can damage the developing brain – and now mobile phones are being banned in every primary school in the country.
Other health authorities have claimed that mobile phones are safe to use, although the UK experts have been concerned that they shouldn’t be used by children as electromagnetic radiation from them may affect the developing brain.

How radiation affects Children
Cell phone use by children and adolescents is increasing rapidly, and they are likely to accumulate many years of exposure during their lives. (1). In addition, children are actually at greater risk because their nervous systems are still developing at the time of exposure. (2) Because their Nervous System is still not fully developed - they are more at risk to the effects of the EMR. The increased mitotic activity in cells of developing children makes them more susceptible to genetic damage.
MAKE SURE TO PROTECT THEM!!!
