We have seen several ads (for Kinder and Ariel) recently on French TV - TF1 - showing young children holding cell phones against their ears. In his comments on the new draft decrees on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) of mobile phones proposed by the French Ministry of Health, Dr. Marc Arazi, President of Phonegate quotes ANSES (French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety) which recommends “discouraging the use by children of all mobile communications devices, for example, extending regulations regarding these devices to banning advertising whose direct purpose is to promote the sale, availability, and use of mobile phones to children under age 14”.  This should also be the case in Switzerland, which seems to have restrictions on tobacco and alcohol concerning children but not on mobile devices.

Since this particular medication ad features a woman with a laptop in her lap, I’m only going to focus only on how that is unsafe even according to outdated federal safety standards and manufacturer warnings.

In 2010, Lloyd Burrell from ElectricSense produced a video where he measured exposure levels from his laptop.
