 'Text, Don't Talk' If You Don't Want Brain Cancer: Science Advises Children

After several scientific studies linked mobile phone use to the increased risk of brain tumours, kids have been urged to text, rather than talk on their cell phones.

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency issued the official caution last week, following a decade-long study into the health effects of using mobile phones.

The agency said that kids needed to take precautions to protect themselves from exposure to radiation because health risks from their long-term mobile phone use were still unknown.

"Children should be encouraged to limit exposure from mobile phones to their heads by reducing call time, by making calls where reception is good, by using hands-free devices or speaker options, or by texting," The Daily Telegraph quoted the agency as saying.
