New study shows a child’s brain absorbs twice as much cell phone radiation versus adults
(NaturalHealth365) A recently published study shows that a child’s brain can absorb twice as much cell phone radiation as that of an adult. It confirms that cell phone radiation is absorbed deeper into children’s brains than previous outdated cell phone test methods have suggested.
The world now has more than 7 billion cell phones. Given the links between cell phone radiation and a number of serious diseases like brain tumors, cancer and cardiovascular disease, it’s almost unimaginable to think that the cell phone test methods, which are now 19 years old and are supposed to ensure our protection, actually do little or nothing to protect our children. This is what a new research paper shows.
Research confirms a significantly higher absorption of cell phone radiation into the younger brains
The new peer-reviewed research paper just published in the IEEE/Access, one of the world’s leading engineering and scientific magazines, details how sophisticated computer imaging can simulate exposures of children’s brains to the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted by cell phones.
The study used anatomically based models of brains representing different ages, from a 3 year old to 34-year-old, and generated estimates of how the brain absorbs cell phone radiation. The simulations were run through a computer system that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently uses to evaluate medical devices. The research confirmed a significantly higher absorption of EMFs, cell phone microwave radiation, into the younger brains than into the older brains.
Why aren’t we using the most advanced technology to protect the safety of our children?
Robert D. Morris, MD, PhD, a physician, environmental epidemiologist, EHT senior medical advisor and author of a newly released paper criticizing the outdated testing methods, says:
“Cell phone safety is currently evaluated with a twenty year old plastic model of an adult male head filled with a liquid that is supposed to mimic the human brain. During those twenty years, the same technology that has revolutionized cell phones has redefined the way we model human biology. Why aren’t we using the most advanced technology to protect the safety of our children? Why are we still modeling their delicate, developing central nervous system with an adult sized bucket filled with imitation brain juice?”
Current cell phone standards only protect us from the thermal effects of radiation exposures – which equates to little or no protection
Current cell phone standards only take into account the thermal effects of radiation exposures. That’s to say they only protect us from the heating effect of this radiation and yet there are thousands of studies which show adverse health effects well below thermal limits.
This new research confirms the concerns of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). In 2013, the AAP, a non-profit professional organization representing the interests of over 60,000 members, wrote to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) calling for more protective EMF exposure standards. In 2012 the U.S. Government Accountability Office voiced similar concerns.
We are talking about the real possibility of a generation of children with irreversible brain impacts from cellphones
Devra Davis PhD MPH explains, “cell phone radiation has also been shown to damage brain development and just like lead we have no scientific documentation of a safe level for children. We are talking about the real possibility of a generation of children with irreversible brain impacts from cellphones.”
We know that children’s skulls and bones are thinner, their brains and bodies contain more fluid so they naturally absorb more cell phone radiation than adults. The fear is that small impacts to children’s rapidly developing systems could have large impacts later in life.
Tips to protect you and your children from EMFs
1. Don’t allow children to use cell phones for calling.
2. As an adult, limit call to those that are absolutely necessary.
3. Avoid carrying your phone next to your body.
4. Avoid Wi-Fi networks – especially in the home.
5. Avoid compact fluorescent lighting and lighting which uses a transformer.
6. Replace cordless phones with corded versions.

New study confirms and builds upon decades of science showing higher absorption of cell phone radiation in children
In 1996, Professor Gandhi’s groundbreaking research first showed that 5-year-old and 10-year-old children have higher absorption rates than adults. Later studies by Gandhi and other senior scientists were cited by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (WHO IARC) Monograph on Radio Frequency Fields published in 2013, classifying cell phone and wireless radiation as a Class 2B Possible Human Carcinogen. The WHO states, “the average exposure from use of the same mobile phone is higher by a factor of 2 in a child’s brain and higher by a factor of 10 in the bone marrow of the skull.”
The sophisticated state of the art computer imaging used in this new study confirms and builds upon decades of science showing higher absorption of cell phone radiation in children.
In light of the growing number of studies showing the link between cell phone radiation exposures and a number of serious diseases make sure that you take the necessary steps to protect your children and yourself from cell phone radiation and similar EMF exposures.
