In brief: Why Risk It?

No one really knows if cell-phone radiation causes brain cancer, alzheimers, adhd, etc.
But we do know, without a doubt, that cell phones compete with healthier forms of communication; discourage exercise; expose to garbage from the media; and cause fatal accidents. Notable exceptions exist, but most kids (and many adults!) might be better off without carrying a cell phone.

I couldn't agree more that cell phones are way more trouble than they're worth for kids; but for the record, multiple studies have now been done, and none of them have shown any credible link between cell phone use and any of the publicized hazards such as brain cancer.

In brief: Maybe

There have been no conclusive studies to prove whether cell phone radiation is harmful to children (and other people) or not.
