We all have already heard about the health risks posed by cell phone radiation, particularly on children and teens. The tissues in their brains and bodies are still growing and their cells are rapidly dividing. DNA damage in growing cells from exposure to radiofrequency waves, as research suggests, can lead to a host of problems with the proper development of those cells, and consequently of the tissues and organs.
However, there are more immediate effects than to just the physical health. Scientists in Spain 5 years ago have discovered that a call lasting just two minutes can alter the natural electrical activity of a child’s brain for up to an hour afterwards. Doctors fear that this disturbed brain activity in children could lead to psychiatric and behavioral problems or impair learning ability.
Dr Gerald Hyland, a government adviser in the UK on cell phones, says he finds the results “extremely disturbing”. “It makes one wonder whether children, whose brains are still developing, should be using mobile phones,” he adds. “The results show that children’s brains are affected for long periods even after very short-term use. Their brain wave patterns are abnormal and stay like that for a long period. This could affect their mood and ability to learn in the classroom if they have been using a phone during break time, for instance. We don’t know all the answers yet, but the alteration in brain waves could lead to things like a lack of concentration, memory loss, inability to learn and aggressive behaviour.”
Since almost every teen who uses a cell phone view it as an indispensable part of their lives, this is a major problem. The University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute director advised precautionary measures, including using the speaker phone and/or headset, using the cell phone only for emergencies, etc. But it is also recommended to use technological countermeasures that address the cell phone radiation itself. One such measure is a patented MRET-shield technology from Biopro that has been proven effective in various scientific tests in neutralizing the radiofrequency effects on the body.

This is a serious matter. As Prof. Leif Sanford, Head of Research at Lund University in Sweden, has said, “The voluntary exposure of the brain to microwaves from hand-held mobile phones” is “the largest human biological experiment ever.” Our children are our future, quite literally.
