A newly-published paper reveals that, not only do children take in twice as much microwave radiation from cell phones than adults, but that the cell phones studied exceeded U.S. Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) exposure guidelines.
The scholarly article on the safety of cell phones was published this week in the journal Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine and focused on cell phones used in shirt or pant pockets, said Science Daily.
The paper also revealed that the industry-designed method of looking at cell phone microwave radiation causes children to absorb two times the amount of cell phone radiation into their heads, said Science Daily. Children also absorb up to three times the radiation into their brain’s hippocampus and hypothalamus, significantly more in their eyes, and up to 10 times more in their bone marrow, versus adults, wrote Science Daily.
The paper’s authors, wrote Science Daily, include three team members at Environmental Health Trust: Devra Davis, PhD, MPH, Founder and President; L. Lloyd Morgan, Senior Science Fellow; and Ronald B. Herberman, MD, Chairman of the Board.
The current process is based on a fairly large male whose 40 brain tissues are assumed to be identical, explained Science Daily; however, a more reliable system involves use of “anatomically based models” of people in a range of ages and conditions, including pregnant women. this would better reveal radiation absorbed into all tissues types, taking into consideration that children absorb more radiation than other groups, said Science Daily. this method also enables devices to be certified with the most vulnerable people—children—in mind and to maintain the “as Low as reasonably Achievable” (ALARA) approach that should be taken when creating radiological device standards, said Science Daily.http://www.emfnews.org/products.htmlhttp://emfnews.org/Lifewave-Cellphone-Matrix-Shield-Test.html
