Melbourne, Jan 13 (ANI): Radiation from cell phones has no short-term health impact on kids and teens, according to a new German government study.

The study - which measured radiation levels in over 3,000 youngsters aged eight to 17 over a 24-hour period - showed there was no direct link between exposure to radiation and health complaints such as headaches and dizziness.

However, the country's Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) said in a statement that radiation might still result in longer-term health risks for children as their nervous and immune systems are not fully developed.

"We still do not know what long-term effects the electromagnetic fields from mobile phones have on children and youngsters," News.com.au quoted a BfS spokesman, as saying.

As a precautionary measure, the BfS urges caution in the use of wireless technology, especially for kids. (ANI)
