Psychotherapist Nicholas Kardaras, author of Glow Kids, which warns of the dangers of excessive screen time by children, is petitioning the U.S. Senate and House to demand warning labels on cellphones, computers.
Kardaras quotes Dr. Andrew Dean, head of addiction research of the U.S. Navy, as saying, “I feel like there’s a war going on against our children. And it’s come so fast that we’re not even questioning it.”
Both he and Kardaras say excessive screen time is a “digital drug” that is a narcotic more powerful than morphine. Schools have become “drug dealers,” says Kardaras, who has appeared on numerous national media and has spoken to libraries in Southampton, N.Y., and Sag Harbor, where he lives with his wife and twin boys.
Cellphone Group Fights Warnings:
CITA, formerly the Cellular Telephone Industries Assn., which had revenues of $161 million in 2014, took Berkeley, Calif. to court after the city passed a law that made retail stores post the following sign:
“If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation.” Customers are told to read the safety regulations in the cellphone manuals.
