As said,

“If something is of great utility, it will surely have its own problems as well”

OR

“Every coin has two sides.”

Cell phones are no exception. Mobile phones use electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range and so produce a type of radiation which is non ionizing radio frequency i.e. a form of energy located on the electromagnetic spectrum. The fixed infrastructure like sites or BTS (base transceiver station) in layman language the tower which we see at some location used by different telecom operators also emit radiation.This are more harmful because unlike mobile handsets, it is emitted continuously and with more power. Nothing can be done for the fixed infrastructure but definitely prevention can be taken for the harm caused by the radiation from the handsets.

Recently WHO (World Health Organization) has stated that use of cell phones are carcinogenic to humans and may lead to brain cancer. Although predictions that cell phones may affect the heart, sperm count in men, breast cancer in women and mental stress is not yet proved.
