EDISON - A new study published in the Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine journal shows kids' brains absorb twice as much cell phone radiation than adults, a Toronto Sun report said today.

According to research, 22 percent of young children between the ages of 6-9 own a cell phone, 60 percent of children up to 12 years old and 84 percent of teens.

Researchers believe kids are more at risk because their bodies are smaller and their skulls are thinner than adults, the report said.
