Report says children and power users should be limited to 40 minutes of cell phone use daily

According to The National Agency for Health, Food and Environmental Safety in France, children and heavy users should limit their exposure on cell phones to just 40 minutes a day. The recommendation was made by a panel of 16 experts who studied 300 scientific studies that have been released since 2009. Some of the studies have linked long term cell phone use with the development of brain cancer.
A commerce manager who spend 6 hours a day on a cell phone for 12 years as part of his job, was awarded compensation by an Italian Court for a brain tumor that the court ruled had come on as a result of his cell phone use. The French agency also blamed cell phone radiation for fertility issues, cognitive problems, and issues with sleep. Despite all of this information, The National Agency for Health, Food and Environmental Safety was forced to admit that "the agency's experts were unable to establish any causal link between the biological effects described in cell models, animals or humans, and any possible resulting health effects."

Do they mean 40 minutes of phone use or 40 minues of phone calling? Cause I barely use my phone for calling anymore, though I do average 4~5 hours of phone usage between web browsing, gaming, texting, etc....

Wondering the same thing here. I'm guessing it's calling since that's the only time when the phone is very close to your brain.

There are two types of radiation: Ionizing and no-ionizing. Ionizing radiation is the most dangerous while non-ionizing is the least dangerous. However, there are many levels of both types that lead from the least to most dangerous. Since Ultraviolet rays is the threshold between ionizing and non-ionizing, Radio are far lower and fall right in the middle of the non-ionizing level. Relatively low amounts. Body cell structure is generally not harmed by non-ionizing radio waves. However, I feel this article pertains, and is directed towards people with heath issues that involve cell deficiencies or already under chemo or x ray treatments. Children are not fully immunized where prolonged doses could affect growth or other health issues. Technically, the average person should not be worried over cellphone use. You are more likely to get killed by talking or texting on the phone while driving. John B.
