2. Do Mobile Phones Affect Children?

Though there is no definite proof, it is possible that children may be affected by electromagnetic waves emitted from mobile phones. The skulls of children are thin, and the nervous system is still developing. Therefore, keeping mobile phones close to the brain may affect its development. Also, children will be exposed to the electromagnetic field for their entire lifetimes. Therefore, they should avoid the use of mobile phones.

3. What are the Other Possible Side Effects of Electromagnetic Fields?

It has been suggested that electromagnetic fields can cause a wide range of side effects which include ringing in the ears, cancers, Parkinsonís disease, infertility, headache, hormonal changes, sleep disturbances, and depression, to name a few. However, none of these have been proven beyond doubt. The use of mobile phones is fairly recent and its long-term effects may not yet be established. Till more studies prove whether these devices are harmful or harmless, it is better to keep them away from our bodies for as long as possible.
