Wireless devices marketed in the U.S. are required to meet safety requirements
regardless of whether they are used against the head or against the body. Either
configuration should result in compliance with the safety limit.” Also, if you use your
wireless device while in a car, you can use a device with an antenna on the outside
of the vehicle. You should also read and follow your wireless device manufacturer’s
instructions for the safe operation of your device.
Do wireless devices pose any special risks to children?
The FDA/FCC website states that “the scientific evidence does not show a
danger to users of wireless communication devices, including children.” The FDA/
FCC website further states that “some groups sponsored by other national
governments have advised that children be discouraged from using wireless devices
at all.” For example, the Stewart Report from the United Kingdom [“UK”] made
such a recommendation in December 2000. In this report a group of independent
experts noted that no evidence exists that using a cell phone causes brain tumors
or other ill effects. [The UK’s] recommendation to limit cell phone use by children
was strictly precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health
hazard exists. A copy of the UK’s leaflet is available at

(search “mobile”). Parents who wish to reduce
their children’s RF exposure may choose to restrict their children’s wireless device
use.
