German phone advice

German parents have received official advice to limit their children’s use of mobile phones.

Wolfram König, the head of the nation’s Federal Radiation Protection Office, recommends that children not use mobile phones. He has also recommended that mobile phone base stations not be erected near sensitive areas such as kindergartens, schools and hospitals.
