    Children have now become active owners of mobile phones, which represents an open and uncontrolled source of EMF exposure. For the first time children and teenagers are in that group of risk to which only the working experts belonged earlier – professional operators of radar and other microwave sources of industrial function.

    Now the situation demands an estimation of the health hazard of children – users of mobile phones, organization of constant hygienic control and development of the whole complex of preventative actions.

    In this book the current state of the problem is considered (one of the authors of the book is the permanent member of the WHO Advisory Committee on the problem: EMF and health of the population, for more than 15 years).The results of 6 years’ supervision over school children – users of mobile phones are described. Recommendations to parents and children on reducing the impact of EMF on the brain when using mobile phones are given.
