Based on cancer statistics, are mobile devices safe for children?

The smart phone and tablet era has been a benefit for businesses and families alike. Families are able to give their pre-teens and teenagers more independence confident that they can stay in touch with a mobile phone. Many households have furnished their children with mobile devices safe in the knowledge that they can be reached 24 / 7 if they keep the battery charged.

Whilst the mobile and wireless decade has certainly brought advantages to many households, questions are being raised as to the safety of the devices being produced after researchers and scientists are finding that this technology is affecting us on a biological as well as beneficial level.

The American Brain Tumour Association conducted a study on primary brain and central nervous system tumours in three age groups: 0 – 14 year olds, 15 – 39 years olds and 40+ year olds in the US between 2008 and 2012. This is the first report based on statistics of malignant and non-malignant tumours from the various age groups. This study showed that cancer is a significant reason for the deaths and illness in the 15 to 39 age group. Death due to cancer is the fourth most common cause of death overall in this age group. Among all deaths due to cancer by histology, brain and CNS tumours are the third most common cause of cancer death with only breast and thyroid cancer occurring more frequently.

This combined with research from Sweden wherein studies are showing an increase in malignant brain tumours on the side of the head where the mobile phone is most commonly held and that children are more likely to absorb microwave radiation that emits from the mobile device because of their smaller heads, thinner skulls and higher brain conductivity suggests that precautions should be taken when allowing children access to wireless technology.
