Wireless-wise Kids

 

Safer ways to use mobile and wireless technology

 

By Lyn McLean, illustrated by Janet Selby
Today’s children are using more wireless technologies for longer periods of time than ever before. Yet children are more vulnerable to the radiation they emit than adults and know less about how to protect themselves.

In Wireless-wise Kids Lyn McLean and Janet Selby show children how to use mobile phones, cordless phones, wireless computers and tablets more safely. Their practical, beautifully-illustrated suggestions echo recommendations by world experts that we should be taking precautions to help keep our children safe.

The first book of its kind anywhere in the world, Wireless-wise Kids is a 36-page, full-colour paperback on wireless technologies aimed specifically at young people. It contains dozens of tips that young people can easily understand an implement and has scores of colourful, animated pictures and cartoon characters designed to appeal to kids of all ages.

‘We think that kids will derive as much information from the pictures as the text,’ said Selby, who, like McLean, is a trained teacher.

Even adults have found its practical suggestions helpful!

The book’s message is in line with recommendations from many international authorities to limit children’s exposure to microwave radiation. These include Russia’s peak radiation authority, the European Environment Agency, the European Parliament, governments in Britain, Israel and France and medical organisations in Ireland, Germany, Vienna and the US.’
