60% of parents with smartphones have no idea that parental controls exist on their phones. I think this is a major problem because I see kids all over the place playing games and using their parent's smartphones to keep them entertained. The only default personal control on phones that I know of is asking the password to your Itunes account before downloading an app for the Iphone. In addition, a password can be set up on many phones but that is basically all that people know about. Since smartphones are relatively new especially to parents, I think they need to learn every feature on their phone and the ability of it. Kids may "play" on their parent's phone when they are actually using the web browser to look things up. If the parent doesn't know how to check the history on their phone's web browser, let alone utilize the web browser, they will have no idea what their child is looking at. I think being aware of the features on your phone are mandatory for keeping your child safe.

Nunavik's Inuit kids exposed to mercury or lead more likely to have ADHD symptoms

Nunavik's Inuit kids exposed to mercury or lead more likely to have ADHD symptoms | Happy Little Feet's run down | Scoop.it

[excerpts]

Children exposed to higher levels of mercury or lead are three to five times more likely to be identified by teachers as having problems associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, according to a scientific study published today.

The study – of Inuit children living in Arctic Quebec – is the first to find a high rate of attention-deficit symptoms in children highly exposed to mercury in the womb. In addition, the Inuit children more often had hyperactivity symptoms if they were exposed to the same low levels of lead commonly found in young U.S. children.

[...]

Whale and fish consumed by their mothers were the sources of the Inuit children’s exposure to mercury. The lead came from foods the children ate that contained lead shot from hunting.

[...]

Nunavik children are highly exposed to mercury mostly from eating beluga whale meat. Methylmercury accumulates in large fish and marine mammals near the top of food chains.

Such high mercury levels are rare among non-Arctic populations.

“We think that there’s not likely to be a significant proportion of the U.S. or Canada population exposed to the mercury levels where we’ve seen these effects,” Muckle said. But she cautioned that some segments of the population, particularly Asian communities, who eat large quantities of albacore tuna, swordfish and other large predator fish could be equally exposed.

In contrast, the lead levels associated with ADHD symptoms in the Nunavik children are roughly the same as average levels in U.S. children.

[...]

The children in the study were not actually diagnosed by psychiatrists but Lanphear said teacher surveys are a “validated approach” to check for ADHD symptoms. A child is typically diagnosed with ADHD using the surveys at both school and at home.Funded by the U.S. and Canada governments, the study is part of a two-decade investigation of children in Nunavik, who are exposed to some of the world’s highest levels of mercury and industrial chemicals called PCBs or polychlorinated biphenyls. The children have been studied for the effects of contaminants since they were born between 1993 and 1996.

[...]

Mercury and PCBs migrate long distances via the air and ocean currents, collecting in marine food webs. Beluga, narwhal, seals and other marine animals that are traditional foods for Arctic people have among the world’s highest levels of PCBs and other contaminants. As a result, the Inuit are among the highest exposed people on Earth.Public health officials in Nunavik last year advised pregnant women to reduce their consumption of beluga because of the chemicals’ potential health effects on their children.

Kids And Violence In Today’s Comics. Literally, Today’s Comics. | Happy Little Feet's run down | Scoop.it

Last night I had a talk with my daughter about not hitting people. “Spider-Man does it” she replied. I explained that Spider-Man was just a fun story, that it isn’t real and that, anyway, Spider-Man was fighting bad guys like thieves and robbers. “But Sally stole my sweets.” I can see the conversations continuing long and hard…

But it may have put my in the right frame of mind to see the cacophony of child violence in today’s comics batch. Here are a few that caught my eye…

Wonder Woman #0

Red Hood And The Outlaws #0

Princess Amethyst #0

Nightwing #0

The Walking Dead #102

Batwoman #0

Justice League #0 – hey, that’s a kid under all that muscle.

Weirdly Marvel’s own kid deity, Loki, never raises a hand against anyone. Of course, what he does is far worse…
