Scuba and kids - good point John...

John makes an excellent point here.  DAN has done some research on the effects of diving on kids recently. There seemed to be an issue concerning bone plates that are not fully developed and the effect of pressure on those in children. And as you can imagine, there are not enough subjects to do accurate research.  Who wants to subject their child to something like that.  So DAN continues to find out as much as they can (suggest you go go their website). And the scuba industry is targeting kids (especially teens) to train whether that's good, bad or indifferent. Again, it's the instructor's call far as I'm concerned. Just my thoughts again...
