Last year, the World Health Organization named cellphone radiation a possible carcinogen, putting it in a class with DDT, lead, and tailpipe exhaust in terms of potential to cause cancer. Because the technology is still relatively new and cancers could take decades to develop, researchers haven't been able to definitively prove or disprove that cellphones, or other wireless devices like iPads, cause cancer. 

The latest evidence suggesting you might want to practice the precautionary principal to protect your family from cellphone radiation? A new animal study out of Yale University found that prenatal exposure to cellphone radiation increases the risk of a child's developing ADHD symptoms. This isn't the first study to link cellphones to behavioral problems in kids. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health found that children born in the mid- to late-1990s, the early days of cellphone use, were more likely to experience behavioral problems by age 7 if their mothers used a cellphone on a regular basis during and after pregnancy. 

Another recent study found that a child's growing body can absorb up to 10 times the radiation an adult's body absorbs, another reason to limit exposure. 

Aside from an increased risk of behavioral problems, cellphone radiation has been linked to ringing in the ears, bone loss, concentration problems, and sometimes, rashes.

The good news is you don't have to totally abandon your iPad or smartphone to protect yourself from cellphone radiation.
