ISLAMABAD (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – December 3, 2019): Excessive use of smartphones is dangerous for children’s health and can cause cancers, tumors such as glioma and acoustic neuroma, as the brain tissue of children absorb about twice as much microwave radiation as that of adults, and children’s bone marrow absorbs 10 times as much radiation.
Speaking to APP, Dr Ikram ul Haq said low IQ and inappropriate mental growth in children, lack of sleep, brain tumors and psychiatric illnesses are caused by overuse of phones.
He said excessive phone use has a detrimental effect on our bodies, especially the growth of the skulls of children, toddlers and adolescents, and may trigger the development of brain cancer. in the future.
He said cell phones have non-ionizing radiation. A lot of research has proven that infants and unborn babies are at greater risk of bodily harm as a result of microwave radiation emitted by wireless devices.
The absorption rate of microwave radiation was higher in children than in adults because their brain tissue was more absorbent, their skulls were thinner and their relative size was smaller, he added.
When we approached another expert to learn about preventive measures, Dr Babar Nadeem said that although wireless devices have become part of our daily lives, they can be used in a sufficiently safe manner.
He said the most important point was distance, holding a cell phone a few inches from our ear would reduce the risk by 1,000 times.
Dr Nadeem said that just like Belgium, France, Germany and other technologically sophisticated governments, our government should also pass laws ensuring that warnings are issued regarding the use of wireless devices by the children.
He said the best place to keep a cell phone is in a wallet, purse, purse or backpack.
In addition, these devices should be kept away from the abdomen of a pregnant woman. If a woman was a mother, she should not use a cell phone while breastfeeding or breastfeeding.
Children and teens need to know how to use cell phones and wireless devices safely, he said, cell phones should not be allowed in children’s rooms at all.
Good health was above wealth, but the majority of people undermine their personal health and become more careless about the mental and physical state of their children.
