Are Cell Phones Dangerous
Cellular phones are the world’s most popular mobile device used by Americans today, but cell phones are said to be the leading cause of traffic accidents they are used for: cyber bullying, give off electromagnetic radiation that is harmful to our bodies and more; therefore we ask ourselves are cell phones really dangerous?
