Cell Phone's Children & Disney Seduced by the Promise of Billions in Profits?

Apr 10, 2008
At the beginning of July 2006, the Disney Corporation announced a new mobile phone marketing initiative, aimed directly at children and teenagers. In this new product line, a joint venture between Disney and the telecommunications giant, Sprint, Disney is using its wholesome, family-oriented image to sell mobile phones and phone air time as a package to tweenies, that market group of kids between 8-14, and their parents.

It should be a matter of considerable alarm to every parent that there are no special safety features on the cell phones they are offering; this in spite of the emerging medical data indicating a serious health risk to children and young people who use cell phones for long periods without protection.

How could Disney do this to our children? Don't they know about all the studies that have been made on the dangers of EMF (electromagnetic fields) exposure? Perhaps they know about them and don't believe them? Well, let me give you a little background:

In 2000 or early 2001 Disney made a deal with ITT to sell mobile phones with colorful covers portraying the famous Disney characters. Then the ABC TV news program 20/20 did an expose of ITT - its own parent company! - expressing shock at Disney marketing a product whose safety had recently come into serious question.

Following that publicity, Disney took another look at the data: and canceled the deal; a deal worth at least $2 million! Good for Disney, right?

And then what happened? Here we are, some five years later, with cell phone use soaring, and Disney found a new suitor, and for a deal reported to be worth several billions of dollars. They gave into temptation. Not because they didn't know: not because they didn't care but because they didn't care enough!

What we do know, however, is that the company established and built on the good character and good intentions of its founding father, Walt Disney, will listen to you and your children: if you talk loud enough.

It's not too late for Disney and Sprint to build in available technology to safeguard the cell phones that they want you to buy for your children. All you have to do is ask: or don't buy their products.

I personally urge you to boycott this program and to write to the Disney Corporation demanding that these phones include all available safety technologies together with warning and guidance on safe usage. The new Disney mobile phone program, as it is now configured, represents an unmitigated danger to children and teenagers.

Address your letters to: The Walt Disney Company, 500 South Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521.

February 2005: NEXTEL has become an official sponsor at Walt Disney World and now these strange "trees" -- disguised cellular antennas -- are cropping up around the park.
I guess SPRINT isn't the only telecommunications giant who's got the Mouse's ear!
