Cell Phone Radiation and EMF Dangers Could Be Even Greater in Children
The question of whether or not radiation and electromagnetic field or EMF dangers from cell phones and laptops poses a threat has been a debate for years. However, isn't it better to be safe than sorry -- especially when it comes to your children?

Devastating Impact on the Younger Generation
According to The Independent, one study conducted by Swedish researchers reportedly found a five-fold increase in one type of cancer, known as glioma, in children who use cell phones before the age of 20.
Many experts in the field have long voiced their opinions on the potential for this type of phenomenon to have devastating impacts down the line when this younger generation reaches adulthood and beyond. With more and more children possessing cell phones and laptops at younger ages than ever before, it's worth pondering the potential for an epidemic of sorts in the not-so-distance future.
Researcher Dr. Hardell states - "This is a warning sign!"
The study, which was led by Professor Lennart Hardell of the University Hospital in Orebro, Sweden, also found that cordless phone radiation was almost as potentially harmful. The chances of developing cancer were about four times greater in children that were exposed to these devices.
"This is a warning sign," Hardell said. "It is very worrying. We should be taking precautions."
The condition of acoustic neuromas was also about five times more prevalent in children who used cell phones before 20 years of age. These eye-opening statistics may be the result of only one specific study, but it remains a concern considering the ever-increasing exposure to radiation and EMF dangers.
Why this is happening...
"Children are spending significant time on mobile phones. We may be facing a public health crisis in an epidemic of brain cancers as a result of mobile phone use," said Dr. David Carpenter, director of the Institute of Health and Environment at the University of Albany. "Because the skull is so thin and the head is relatively small, the radiation penetrates almost through the head."
The efforts to change policies and regulations continues, but in the meantime, there are steps that can be taken to reduce the chances of these potential conditions.
