Dangers of Cell Phones

I am sure that most of you own cell phones and that you can’t leave your home without it. And that all of you think of cell phones as one of the most useful devices of our time.

We are starting to get used to people seemingly talking to themselves everywhere. The benefits of cell phones are undoubtedly numerous; especially in emergency situations.

These radiations impose great danger to our body and its functions. Finland's Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority reports that one hour of exposure to mobile phone radiation can cause human cells to shrink. While the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry reports, that microwave frequencies emerging from cell phones cause cancer and other diseases by interfering with cellular DNA.
