Children Absorb 2-5 Times Higher Doses of Microwave Radiation than Adults, From Virtual Reality Systems
In a study published last month, researchers extended FDA computer-based anatomical modelling used for surgical devices to examine absorption of microwave radiation from cell phones held in virtual reality positions.
Specific areas of the eyes and critical parts of the brain absorbed between 2 to 5 times more cell phone radiation in the youngest child model compared to the adult model.
Children’s health specialists are concerned that higher exposures to unprecedented levels of microwave radiation pose risks of permanent damage to vision, hearing and brain development, and cancer.
The researchers also found that when using a mobile phone at ear contact, a 3-year old child absorbs about twice as much radiation into the cerebellum, and up to thirtyfold more into the hippocampus–the part of the brain central to memory, emotions and impulse control.
