Why does your cell phone emit radiation? Your cell phones needs to emit radiation because a digital signal is sent from your phone to a wireless telephone base station. The digital signal then compresses your voice allowing the person on the other side of the conversation to hear you. The amount of RF (radio frequency) depends on the distance from the base station, the frequency of use, and the age of your phone.

 

Many of us use a cell phone in our daily life. Though you may be only talking for 2 minutes radiation is still going into your head. This is because the transmitter goes out of the antenna, which is close to your brain. This is a bigger threat to children because their skulls are thin, they have a smaller head, and the nervous system is still developing. Children also have a longer lifetime exposure and get a greater absorption of energy in the tissue. A child would absorb 50% more radiation than the average adult!   Inside a Cell Phone

Do you know many kids in Canada own a cell phone? In Canada 2/3 of the children own cell phones. In 2004 Disney and Rogers A&T Wireless joined together to try to attract more kids to buy phones. They did this by creating Disney skins, with Disney characters on it, making it more appealing to younger kids.
