For children --- No smartphones before 10 years of age, pediatricians say

February 13, 2019 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

Italy certainly did not need another controversial world record, but in any case, at least regarding the use of smartphones, it is in first place in Europe.

The most alarming aspect is that the average age of smartphone owners has been steadily decreasing so that now, even children are starting to use them sooner and unfortunately, to also abuse them.

To draw attention to this issue is the Italian Society of Preventive and Social Pediatrics (SIPPS) which emphasizes how excessive exposure to the magnetic waves of electronic devices can damage the body, especially that of individuals who are still growing.

In this regard, the specialists have launched a proposal to prohibit the use of smartphones at least up to 10 years of age.

At present, there is not enough scientific data to prove the consequences of the indiscriminate use of smartphones and other mobile devices, but the situation is equally worrying.

In general, it is known that the organism's interaction with an electromagnetic field causes reactions such as the increase in basal temperature as a natural activation of the biological system. When this mechanism of thermal adaptation protracts too long, the necrosis and death of the cells take place.

Children have skeletal tissues and systems that are not yet fully formed, so they are not equally shielded as an adult could be. Holding a smartphone close to the ear or too close to the head for a long time exposes the brain to large doses of electromagnetism and substantially "cooks" it, somewhat like the principle that makes microwave ovens work.

In addition to the potential side effects from a physical point of view, technological abuse also causes deleterious effects from a psychological point of view. The result is the development of forms of dependence similar to those for alcohol, drugs, and smoking.

In many cases, aggressive behaviors, sleep disorders, and vision problems associated with excessive use of smartphones have been observed.

Last but not least, it has been found that today's children have less social skills since they spend hours chatting on social networks isolating themselves from the rest of their environment rather than interacting with their peers.

The clear proof of this is the groups of young people who sit at the same table, but instead of talking to each other, they all have their head down and eyes fixed on their smartphone screens.
