Currently schools are investing in Wi-Fi networks and encouraging cell phone use by children in classrooms. Teachers are also using virtual reality systems in classrooms whereby a Smartphone is placed in cardboard and positioned at children's eyes.
According to WHO/IARC children absorb two times higher cell phone radiation in the brain and 10 times higher radiation in the skull bone marrow as compared to adults.
Research shows higher brain cancer risk in those who started using phones young.
Case Reports are accumulating of young women with no family history getting a diagnosis of breast cancer. Tumors were unusually located directly underneath the skin where patients placed cell phones in their bra. More data needs to be collected.
Replicated research studies suggest that cell phone radiation can impact tumor progression. Adequate data needs to be routinely gathered by clinicians on patients cell/Wi-Fi use. Patients need to be educated on reducing exposure to promote recovery.
The National Toxicology Program finding that rats exposed to radio-frequency (RF) radiation developed increased brain and heart cancer adds to the weight of evidence showing that RF (from cell phones/wi-fi) is carcinogenic. http://goo.gl/4E5Ecq
