At least 50 percent of cell phone radiation is absorbed directly by the head and body during use, as cell phone users typically press their devices up against their heads while talking.

The fact that children with developing brains are most prone to damage by cell phone radiation, as their brains tend to absorb more of it on average than the brains of adults. The types of phones and the technologies that they use are also important factors, as smartphones using so-called “4G” or “LTE” network service are believed to be among the most damaging.
