- Israel’s Health Ministry: Advises caution
- Toronto’s Department of Public Health: Children under eight should only use mobiles in emergencies; teenagers should limit calls to 10 minutes or less.
- Russian Ministry of Health: Young people under 18 should not use cell phones.
In the spring of 2008 scientists at universities of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Aarhus, Denmark conducted a very large study involving 13,000 children that showed a direct link between cell phone use of pregnant women and behavioral problems in children they gave birth to. It was published in the July 2008 issue of the journal of Epidemiology and is particularly significant because one of the authors has been skeptical of mobile phone risk to health.
It is also no secret that some studies conducted in previous years that made headlines in international papers warning people of long term cell phone dangers were cited in American papers with completely different conclusions that mislead the public, such as that the study was inconclusive and shows no link to health problems.
