Why Don’t FCC Safety Guidelines on Mobile Phones Consider Children?

Dr. Om Gandhi, prof. of electrical engineering at the Univ. of Utah, Co-chair of IEEE’s SCC 28.IV Subcommittee on RF Safety Standards (1988-97), and Chair of IEEE’s Committee on Man and Radiation (COMAR) 1981-82, has published a paper in IEEE’s June 23, 2015 journal, Spectrum: “Yes the children are more exposed to radio-frequency energy from mobile telephones than adults.” Dr. Gandhi writes that “it is very hard to understand why” the FCC’s safety guidelines only consider the head of a mannequin whose size is in the 90th percentage of US military recruits. http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/articleDetails.jsp?reload=true&arnumber=7131429


Please share Dr. Gandhi’s paper with parents, physicians and educators to encourage limits on children’s exposure to mobile devices.
