Cell phones are almost as common as pocket change these days. It seems nearly everyone, including at increasing number of children, carries a cell phone wherever they go. Cell phones are now so popular and convenient that they are surpassing landlines as the primary form of telecommunication for many people.
Cell-phone use is growing increasing health risks? In 2008, for the first time, Americans are expected to spend more on cell phones than on landlines. And we not only love our cell phones, we use them: Americans racked up more than a trillion cell-phone minutes in the first half alone of 2007th Yet, as cell-phone use continues to grow, so does concern about the possible health risks of prolonged exposure to cell-phone radiation. Wireless cell phones transmit signals via radio frequency (RF), the same kind of low-frequency radiation used in microwave ovens and am / fm radios. Scientists have known for years that large doses of high-frequency radiation-the kind used in x-ray-causes cancer, but less is understood about the risks of low-frequency radiation.
A cell phone changes your voice into radio waves. Lots of everyday items use radio waves. Radios, TVs, and pagers and cordless phones all use radio waves. Another term for radio waves is radio frequency energy. Large amounts of rf are harmful to humans. Cell phones use only a small amount of RF. But some people think that even a small amount of RF may be harmful. How can large amounts of RF harm people? Large amounts of RF can heat body tissue.
Some scientists however, think it’s unwise to think of cell phones as 100 percent safe. Instead some, recommend that children not use cell phones because the radiation can reach further into their brains than it does into the heads of adults. They also recommend texting rather than talking-to keep the phone away from the head. In France, the health ministry has been making similar suggestions to keep children off the cell phones are On phone.Cell integral part of kids’ lives., 22 percent of teenagers own a cell phone (ages 6-9), 60 percent of teens (ages 10-14), and 84 percent of teens (ages 15-18. And cell phone companies are now marketing to younger children with colorful kid-friendly phones and easy-to-use features. According to market research firm the Yankee group, 54 percent of 8 to12 year olds will have cell phones within the next three years.
Cell phones are supplanting the landline. A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that nearly three out of 10 American households receive almost all calls by mobile phone. Mobile phone makers Motorola, Eriksson, and Nokia, begun all print cautions in their user handbooks that warn against mobile phones in “gas stations, fuel storage sites, and chemical factories.” Exxon has placing “warning stickers” at its gasoline stations. The threat mobile phones pose to gas stations and their users is the result of their primar ability to produce sparks that can be generated by the high-powered battery inside the phone. *** pass this on to all your family and friends ***.
Cell phones are a leading cause of car crashes. It is estimated that drivers distracted cell phone are four times more likely to be in a car wreck. According to A Harvard University study, cell phones cause over 200 deaths and half a million injuries each year. Cell phones are widely used and that “the evidence is quite extensive, but incomplete in important ways.” For instance, he says more studies are needed on the long-term effects of children’s cellphone use. “On the one hand, it’s important to be prudent and have an appropriate level of caution, and on the other hand, it’s important not to sound false alarms, because they, too, have unintended.
If you sound consequences not too many of them, nobody Believe Anything you say, and if there is a problem, they distract attention away from real problems, of Which We have a. Cell phones are lot likely to cause accidents. Rural drivers using cell phones while driving are nearly four times more likely to cause automobile accidents than rural drivers not using cell phones, according to a new study by the Western Transportation Institute based at Montana State University.
