13 Reasons To Ban Them Until 13

For some 5 years studies are being published related to the use of mobile phones and their impact on the behavior patterns of children and adolescents. This research is usually led by universities, but in particular I would like to focus this blog on a branch of medicine, Pediatrics. In fact, at least the Japanese Society of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Paediatric Society, have agreed on the conclusions about the effects of the exposure to these devices, claiming that children under 13 should not use them. For these associations, babies from 0 to 2 years old should not have any contact with this technology; children from 3 to 5 years could be at the most spending an hour a day in front of screens (always under strict control and supervision of parents); ranging in ages from 6 to 18 years the exposure should be limited to 2 hours a day. Even for video games a minimum age of 13 is recommended, limiting its use to 30 minutes a day.
