FCC obtained the above data by measuring the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) from each corresponding phone as it was used close to the ear. To pass the FCC’s standard, a phone must emit a radiation level of less than or equal to SAR 1,6 watt per kilogram (w/kg). Naturally, the research was limited to cell phone models that were released in the United States.
Given its long-term effects nature, cell phone radiation is especially dangerous for children who are still in the developmental stage of their growth, as the damage caused by it will accumulate overtime. Thirty percent of cell phone users are children and they lie vulnerable to the radiation. After ten years of cell phone usage, children (or, perhaps by then, teenagers or adults) may start showing off symptoms of radiation-related health issues, according to one research.

There's no scientific proof beyond a number of highly contested studies. Nothing even remotely concrete proving a connection between cell phones and cancer. And besides, literally everything has been found to cause cancer these days. I don't take any of it outside ionizing radiation and industrial toxins seriously anymore. When people try to tell me wood dust can be a carcinogen, I tend to be more than a bit skeptical.
Yale researchers exposed mice to a muted, silenced, cell phone for all 19 days of their pregnancy and found that there were changes in the brain similar to what is seen in ADHD. The offspring had hyperactivity and less memory.
