As you know, I have in my lectures, opinion articles, television and radio appearances, newspaper interviews and written comments pointed to the potential radiation risks for children and adolescents. However, I have always hoped that I should be wrong in my suspicions, but with these new Russian data (described below), then it is untenable to continue to expose children and adolescents! What are the responsible persons doing? How do they really think and reason? I shudder!
Psychophysiological Indicators for Child Users of Mobile Communication. Message 1: Present State of the Problem
Professor Yury Grigoriev is Chairman of Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, a member of the WHO s International Advisory Committeeon 'EMF and Health', and one of the authors of the Seletun Statement.
'It has been shown that the children s organism is more sensitive to this kind of exposure than the adult one. We have identified the following major trends of the psychophysiological indicators for child users of mobile communication: an increased number of phonemic perception disorders, abatement of efficiency, reduced indicators for the arbitrary and semantic memory, an increased fatigue. A steady decline of the parameters from high values to bottom standards has been found.'
