Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults:The consequences
TumorsMyelinCarcinogenFetusChildrenLatencya b s t r a c tComputer simulation using MRI scans of children is the only possible way to determine themicrowave radiation (MWR) absorbed in specific tissues in children. Children absorb moreMWR than adults because their brain tissues are more absorbent, their skulls are thinnerand their relative size is smaller. MWR from wireless devices has been declared a possiblehuman carcinogen. Children are at greater risk than adults when exposed to any carcinogen.Because the average latency time between first exposure and diagnosis of a tumor can bedecades, tumors induced in children may not be diagnosed until well into adulthood. Thefetus is particularly vulnerable to MWR. MWR exposure can result in degeneration of theprotective myelin sheath that surrounds brain neurons. MWR-emitting toys are being soldfor use by young infants and toddlers. Digital dementia has been reported in school agechildren. A case study has shown when cellphones are placed in teenage girls’ bras multipleprimary breast cancer develop beneath where the phones are placed. MWR exposure limitshave remained unchanged for 19 years. All manufacturers of smartphones have warningswhich describe the minimum distance at which phone must be kept away from users inorder to not exceed the present legal limits for exposure to MWR. The exposure limit forlaptop computers and tablets is set when devices are tested 20 cm away from the body.Belgium, France, India and other technologically sophisticated governments are passinglaws and/or issuing warnings about children’s use of wireless devices.
