Effect of Mobile Phone on Kids

By: Andrena Markley

The mobile phones have become such a widespread phenomena in the present times that it is very hard to imagine a life without them. So, it is likely to have an influence over the all age groups. The children have become much affected by this technology. And there have been widespread awareness programs that have been carried out in order to make the users acquainted with the ill effect of mobile phones and its negative effects especially on the kids. It is suggested that the kids below eight should not be allowed to use mobile phones as it would lead to various health hazards.

The study indicates that children who use mobile phones extensively are prone to have non-malignant tumours in the ear and brain and another study states that it can bring changes in cognitive functions.

This has brought a bad name to the mobile phone companies and made them react furiously to this news item. This is because the teenagers are known to be the target clients for any mobile phone manufacturing and they form the major clients who download a lot of videos, games and other stuff. However there is no proof to justify the ill effects of mobile phones, but the emphasis on the precautionary measures of mobile phones should be there.

There have always been talk about some health hazards in the form of blood pressure, brain function and cancer have always been a moot point between the mobile phone manufacturers and mobile phone users. However these effects are known to be the long term effects and there is absolutely no short term effect of this technology. So, the bottom line is that children should be refrained from using mobiles at an extensive basis as it would adversely effect their nervous system in a bad way!
