A new bill is presented in Israel to limit the sell and use of cell phones by kids.

The bill was filed by MPs Dov Hanin Michael Malchior with nine more MPs. According to the new bill, any advertising of mobile phone will include a warning that will catch 5% of the advertisement page. Children will not be shown in the advertisement and it will not be directed to children. Children will not be able legally to buy themselves a cell phone (only with an adult). It will not be legal to sell phones without a warning. The warning will say, on a patch of at least the size of 5 cm, "Warning: the health ministry warns that a lot of usage and carrying the device close to the body can increase the risk of cancer, especially among children." Warnings on the damage will be at the sale centres of cell phones, services centres and on the companies’ websites. Background: the Knesset (parliament) meeting on the 8 October 2007, in which Prof Roni Seger presented Weizmann institute study results, about the reaction of protein ERK to the mobile radiation. While it is not clear whether there is a clear link to cancer, the results do raise concern especially in view of the use of children. So it is suggested to increase public awareness to the health damage. The basis of the bill is to limit advertising and sale of cell phones, especially the sale to children who are especially vulnerable to the devastating effects of the mobile radiation. The health minister will determine the damage and it will be criminal not to fill the directions of the bill, similar to the directions in the law of tobacco advertisement.

(All the above is translated and summarized from the bill itself).
