Dr. Leonard Hardell completed a study , "Use of wireless telephones and self-reported healthy symptoms: a population-based study among Swedish adolescents aged 15-19 years" was published in the Environmental Health Journal in May, 2008.
On September 21, 2008, in the Independent News from Great Britain, a news article highlighted this research on cell phones and their effects on children.
"Children and teenagers are five times more likely to get brain cancer if they use mobile phones, startling new research indicates.
The study, experts say, raises fears that today's young people may suffer an "epidemic" of the disease in later life. At least nine out of 10 British 16-year-olds have their own handset, as do more than 40 per cent of primary school children. "
Reached for comment by the reporter, Professor Hardell told the IOS:
"'This is a warning sign. It is very worrying. We should be taking precautions." He believes that children under 12 should not use mobiles except in emergencies and that teenagers should use hands-free devices or headsets and concentrate on texting.
At 20 the danger diminishes because then the brain is fully developed. Indeed, he admits, the hazard to children and teenagers may be greater even than his results suggest, because the results of his study do not show the effects of their using the phones for many years. Most cancers take decades to develop, longer than mobile phones have been on the market."
Doctor Notes-Comment from Dr. Charles Brown, DC, DABCN, Chiropractic Neurologist and Inventor of the Shield
The dangers of EMF are no longer a debatable issue. This is just one in a growing number of studies showing that cell phone usage is even more risky for your children and young people. We can only imagine at this point the negative effects of using a cell phone over 30 or 40 years or more. Over the past 20 years the situation has grown substantially worse, year by year. To protect yourself and your children, action is needed.
Rather than take a chance, it is prudent to protect yourself and your family. Wearing a BioElectric Shield will protect not only from the cell phone you are using, but also from the EMF from everything else around you: cell towers, televisions, microwave and other advanced technologies.
