Rapid Rise of Children With Cellphones

21.8 percent of girls have them, compared with 18.3 percent of boys. Most of the children surveyed who had cellphones were 10 or 11 years old; Mediamark reported that 36.1 percent of children in that age range had phones.

Comments from Google Buzz:

Vamsi Balakrishnan - Maybe now would be the time to apply for a grant to do a study following a random group of 10,000 kids and see cancer rates in terms of cell phone usage, blue tooth usage, etc.?

Ves Dimov, M.D. - Who knows... May be Bluetooth causes blue tooth... :)

Vamsi Balakrishnan - I have this image in my mind of a tooth turning blue slowly depending on usage. Or if the person has an incoming call.

A slight off shoot of the tattoo and contacts that have been postulated for diabetics that would change color depending on glucose levels. If only the future was here now. :(
