Retrieve June 18, 2010, from EBSCOhost database. This article explains how using cell phones while driving has increased accidents on the road. A study was performed to provide information for estimating the relationship between cell phone use while driving and accidents. The results states there were more accidents due to cell phone usage in vehicles than someone not using a cell phone. Kohli, D., Sachdev, A., & Vats, H. (2009). Cell phones and tumor: Still in no man's land. Indian Journal of Cancer, 46(1), 5-12. doi:10.4103/0019-509X.48589. This is very useful information from Dr. Kohli, which he explains how the use of cell phones may be a risk to people’s health. It can take up to 10 years to find out if someone has develop a brain tumor or maybe even cancer from radiation. There have been widespread of concerns about the deleterious effects of radiofrequency radiations on human tissues and there is going to be further research and informed decisions pertaining to cell phone use to be made.

Retrieved from Academic Search Complete database EBSCOhost. Great resource explaining how mobiles phones are low power radio devices that transmit and receive radio frequency radiation. There is a concern that this might promote or induce cancer. So far there is no clear evidence from epidemiological studies of a relation between mobile phone use and mortality. The only established health hazard cited by independent groups comes from the use of mobile phones while driving. The risk is the same for a drunk driver and also when a person is using a cell phone can cause an accident. Mead, M. (2008). Strong signal...
