Should Kids Get Mobile Phones?
from the radiating-their-brains dept
A new study is worrying folks about whether or not children in the five-to-nine age range should have mobile phones. Mobile phone companies say they don’t target kids, but more and more kids are carrying the phones. Parents often buy the phones for safety reasons (checking up on the kids), and then there’s the peer pressure element where kids start pestering their parents because all their friends are carrying phones. However, some researchers are afraid that, while mobile phone radiation may not be harmful to adults, they’re less sure of the impact on kids.
