Cell Phone Radiation
In today's society there have been numerous advancements to help us in our everyday lives. One of this advancement is cell-phones, which is one of the greatest development in technology. We have become dependent on mobiles phones and it seem like a high percentage of the population including elderly people, young adult and even kids under 18 have one of this devices. There are numerous advantages and disadvantages related to cell phones. In one hand there is the importance of being communicated for emergencies, business, social and personal purposes. On the other hand, the usage of cell phone had become addictive to people of all around the world and the abuse of prolongated hours on the cell phones can cause health hazard. Cell phones

Being that the case it's clears that the low electromagnetic frequency emitted from cell phones devices can cause environmental and biological damage. One thing that can be done to minimized or slow the effect of electromagnetic radiation to our head is by using headsets devises, and text more intend of talking. Based on a study "Mobile Alert" done by the International Agency for research of cancer there is not a shred of evidence that the electromagnetic radiation emitted from cell phones causes harm. Walsh stated that "Cell-phone radiation is non-ionizing and thus considered too weak to cause cancer compare to (Walsh,2011). At the end of this study they had to dismissed links between cancer and cell phones radiation because they concluded that cell-phones send signals that are very weak and similar to microwaves energy. The radiation produced by cellphones cannot directly damage DNA and is different from stronger types of radiation like X-rays or ultraviolet light. At very high levels, radio frequency waves from cellphones can heat up body tissue, but that is not believed to damage human cells. According a study done (Cell Phone Use-Is it Safe) by Dr. Devra Lee "cell phones radiation can damage DNA, produce reactive oxygen species, weaken the blood-brain barrier and increase the risk of cancer" (Lee 2).
