Taiwan contemplates banning mobile phones for kids

The Republic of China (ROC) is pondering whether to ban mobile phones at schools, reports the Taiwan News.

That follows a report earlier this week from the World Health Organization (WHO) that electric emissions from mobile phones posited a possible threat of cancer.

According to the Taiwan News, the Taiwan Electromagnetic Radiation Hazard Protection and Control Association, said that kids under 15 should be banned from using mobile phones completely.

The Ministry of Education (MoE) is now contemplating whether such a ban should be implemented or not.
