The previously unpublished document was released this week after a judge indicated she would order the documents be disclosed. Health officials' overall recommendation is to "increase the distance between you and your phone" by using a headset, the speaker phone function and text messaging.
Health officials recommend not sleeping near your phone and not carry it in your pocket or directly on your body, unless it is off.
The fact sheet also states that "EMFs can pass deeper into a child's brain than and adult's" so suggests parents limit their child's cellphone use to texting, important call and emergencies.
I did a post in 2008:
CELL PHONE USERS BEWARE
What they already knew and did not want you to know...
In 1984, the cellular telecommunications industry brought its focus to bear on the introduction and mass marketing of the cellular telephone.
Without any premarket safety testing, and approved by all requisite federal agencies, the wireless wonder was whisked to store shelves, teleboutiques and on-line personal shopping carts.
Nine years and 15 million American subscribers later, amid rising concerns that cell phone radiation could lead to the development of brain and eye tumors, other forms of cancer, and multiple health hazards, the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) hired Dr. George Carlo to prove that cell phones were indeed safe.
Carlo, as he himself puts it, followed the science, the politics and the money, and, after six years of research, stated publicly that cell phone use was not safe – that it may indeed cause cancer and pose human health risks.
