On September 13-15, an International Expert Conference on Cell Phones and Health is scheduled to take place in Washington D.C. (Which the cellphone industry is boycotting...)
A very necessary conference given that there are growing scientific research showing that the radio waves transmitted by cell phones and other wireless devices can cause brain tumors, harm blood cells and cause cellular changes, damage one's DNA trigger Alzehimer's disease, damage one's eyes and a host of other problems.
And children are especially at risk.
In fact, in Australia there's been an increase in pediatric brain cancers of 21 percent in one decade. In Europe and the U.K., the numbers have grown as well.
In 2005, the British National Radiological Protection Board advised that children younger than age 8 should not be given a cell phone b/c of the risks involved. And just last year, the department of public health in Toronto warmed that children under 8 should only use a cell phone in emergencies and teenagers should limit calls to less than 10 minutes.
Lloyd Morgan, author and member of the Bioelectromangetics Society writes, "Exposure to cell phone radiation is the largest human health experiment ever undertaken, without informed consent, and has some 4 billion participants enrolled."
Something to think about, folks.
