Mast Radiation, Mobile, and Kids: Where Do We Draw the Line?

If you knew that by keeping your child in touch with his or her friends and family was in fact creating them to be at risk of contracting cancer in the near future, would you give in to the mum, I want one so easily? Many would answer no. However, with parents working harder, and staying out of the house more, some need to keep in touch with their kids via a mobile phone.

Reports around the world indicate that more and more children are using laptops, tablet devices like iPad and Droid tablet, iPods, and other mobile devices in order to not only observe them doing their schoolwork, but to see how they interact with each other. Students, especially young students, today are ever-easier to convince to love digital technology. Mobile technology motivates children, and it’s easy to see why: it’s easy to use, it’s fun to use, there are a lot of games, it seems very grown up, and the list goes on and on. However, the adoption of wifi, cell phones, and other mobile technologies into schools throughout the world has a price to pay and that price is incredibly steep. Schools are currently using these technologies and implementing them more and more each day in an effort to ensure that children are prepared for the 21st century and the jobs that they will likely apply for in the next 3-7 years, depending on the age of the child. However, what children may still yet be unprepared for are the possible consequences they may face down the line simply for using mobile devices and technologies too often and for far too long a time period each time.

Currently, some parents across many nations are expressing their concerns about what may be becoming excessive use of technology as opposed to helping children to learn the traditional way. These concerns, however, are not about teachers using tablets instead of books to class. Instead it is about the possible health side effects that often come with exposure to radiation. And radiation is everywhere around children and around adults. Radio-frequency radiation, also known as RF, is used for televisions, radios, mobile phones, and many other mobile devices.

Unfortunately, standardisation at this point for mobile technologies in schools is difficult to achieve. While financials are often a serious consideration when it comes to these types of rules, the parents of these children cannot simply give up their schools or give up on the safety of their children in order to get cell masts taken away from nearby to their school.

Recent reports have indicated that studies, and the response to these studies, throughout the world has zero standardisation. The lack of standardisation makes it difficult for educational administrators to determine whether or not they will allow mobile technologies into their schools and how they will allow these products to be used. Western research reports have traditionally, over the past ten years, indicated that there is no conclusive link between mast radiation and mobile radiation, and yet countries throughout Europe are taking significant measures to ensure the safety of children and adults These individuals has gone so far as to write policies, turn down major benefactors son. Still today, Switzerland has the best policies, and the strictest, for what is allowed into schools when the safety and well-being of the children should always come first. It is also an issue that local government councils need to address, and start doing something about. Today’s youngsters are tomorrow’s leaders! How can they lead without a clean bill of health?
