For Your Safety


Do wireless phones pose any special risks to children?

The FDA/FCC website states that “the scientific evidence does not show a

danger to users of wireless communication devices, including children.” The FDA/

FCC website further states that “some groups sponsored by other national

governments have advised that children be discouraged from using wireless devices

at all.” For example, the Stewart Report from the United Kingdom [“UK”] 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. [The UK’s] recommendation to limit cell phone use by children

was strictly precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health

hazard exists. A copy of the UK’s leaflet is available at

http://www.dh.gov.uk (search

“mobile”), or you can write to: NRPB, Chilton, Didcot, Oxon OX11 ORQ, United

Kingdom. Copies of the UK’s annual reports on mobile phones and RF are available

online at

http://www.hpa.org.uk/radiation/ (search “mobile”). Parents who wish to

reduce their children’s RF exposure may choose to restrict their children’s wireless

device use.

Where can I get further information about RF emissions?
