MOBILE PHONES MARKETED AT CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS FOUR
CHILDRENS COMMISSIONER FACES CALLS TO BAN TEDDY PHONE ADS

MOBILE phones shaped liked teddy bears are being marketed at children as
young as four despite Government warnings that they pose a health risk to
children.

Only last year the Governments Health Protection Agency chairman Sir
William Stewart advised parents to discourage mobile phone use in children
under eight as a precaution against potential health risks.

Now Euro-MP Caroline Lucas has called on the Childrens Commissioner to ban
ads for the products until their safety can be guaranteed.

Dr Lucas, who is Green Party MEP for South-East England and co-president of
the European Parliaments cross-party Consumer Affairs group, said children
were especially vulnerable to the effects of radiation from mobile phone
use and asked the Childrens Commissioner Professor Al Aynsley-Green to
intervene to restrict childrens access to mobile phones.

She said: Children are especially vulnerable to the effects of radiation
from mobile phone use, and it beggars belief that companies have been
allowed to develop products whose safety is in doubt and market them
directly at children.

We must act cautiously until their safety is proven or otherwise. The
Childrens Commissioner must act to halt young childrens exposure to mobile
phones by immediately stopping manufacturers from marketing them at young
children and exploring what powers exist to ban phones aimed at those aged
under eight completely.
