Mobile phone risks for children

Published 28/08/2013

It would be helpful if the 'Tele' would remind parents of the advice of the Chief Medical Officer that children under the age of 16 should only use mobile phones for "essential purposes".

As a child I had an encyclopaedia which extolled the virtues of asbestos and now we know the dangers with that product. Could we be storing up ill-health for our children by allowing them to use mobile phones?
