How to Protect Your Child We are in an age where many parents encourage cell phone use for their children. One of the reason is because cell phones make such a perfect baby sitter. Is that so surprising? Seems like kids want more stimulus and they get distracted quickly. And with so many children apps, cell phones offer the perfect distraction that keeps teenagers and younger entertained for hours, giving mom and dad a little free time. . But will your children pay the price? I believe one of the single most important health issues facing your child today, is the cell phone. Holding your cell phone next to your brain and body is a new danger that left us unprepared to handle. Meanwhile is damage being done to  your child right now? . There is a reason why so many health organizations and scientists continually warn you about not holding your cell phone next to your brain.  You can even find the warning in your cell phone user’s manual. A study in the international journal Epidemiology in October last year found that people who have used cell phones for at least 10 years may have an increased risk of developing a rare brain tumor. According to Dr. Om Gandhi, (EMF research scientist), whom I interviewed, radiation absorption is even greater in women and children. One reported issue is children’s brain development is effected and one of the consequences is their ability to focus and absorb information. Yikes!

While eating, you must have my cell phone within view. While visiting with friends, you check your cell phone for messages. While in business meetings, you have your cell phone in view.

Please Not Another Cell Phone Health Warning!

Maybe we should pay attention Just when you forgotten the last warning you stumbled upon, perhaps could this be a reminder that makes the issue stick? Consider your mobile phone user manual in small print, warns you not to hold the mobile device next to the head.  And yet they advertise with some young girl or boy holding the cell phone next to their brain enjoying their cell phone?
