ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS FROM MOBILE PHONES:
HEALTH EFFECT ON CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS
"Unfortunately, statistical data published in 2009 and 2010 by ROSSTAT and UNICEF show that, since 2000 there has been a steady growth in the incidence of childhood diseases identified by RNCNIRP as “possible diseases” from mobile phone use [19, 20].
Of particular concern is the morbidity increase among young people aged 15 to 19 years (it is very likely that most of them are mobile phone users for a long period of time).
Compared to 2009, the number of CNS disorders among 15 to 17 year-old has grown by 85%, the number of individuals with epilepsy or epileptic syndrome has grown by 36%, the number of “mental retardation” cases has grown by 11%, and the number of blood disorders and immune status disorders has grown by 82%.
In group of children aged less than 14 years there was a 64% growth in the number of blood disorders and immune status disorders, and 58% growth in nervous disorders.
The number of patients aged 15 to 17 years old having consultations and treatment due to CNS disorders has grown by 72%.
Because of this the RNCNIRP considers it important to conduct a scientific study to
determine whether the growth in morbidity resulted from EMF exposure from mobile
phone use or whether it was caused by other factors."
I find this "development" worrysome. We see these symptoms / illnesses in children/youngsters already in Finland, as well. I will meet RNCNIRP representatives in St Petersburg and will ask more.
History teaches us a lesson:
