Cell phones and your health The use of “the cell phone” has become a huge priority in everyone’s lives worldwide. Cell phones are a huge hit in today’s technology, but many people don’t look at the health risks that are involved in using these high tech devices. I firmly agree and state that cell phones are bad for your health. The use of the cell phones is absurd throughout the past few years especially in the U.S. The use of a cell phone for a long period of time can lead to many types of health problems such as brain tumors. I believe cell phones do and can contribute to brain tumors and your health could be at risk. Although cell phones are there to make our lives easier, cell phones used for a long period of time, 10 or more years, studies show that more than a dozen of cell phone users have an incidence of brain tumors and acoustic neuromas. There have been many studies throughout the use of cell phones and health issues involved in them. Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy, a form of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation, which can be absorbed by tissues closest to where the phone is held. Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy (radio waves), a form of non-ionizing radiation. Tissues nearest to where the phone is held can absorb this energy. Cell phones expose us to a form of electromagnetic radiation called radiofrequency (RF) energy. Some mobile phone users have been diagnosed with brain cancer, and many other who have not used mobile phones have gotten the disease, too. Their are many known issues that cell phones and the radiation they give off can cause or lead to health problems. There are some cases that say the use of cell phone and radiation doesn’t lead to cancer or brain tumors. I firmly believe that the radiation given throughout cell phones does and has an effect with brain tumors and cancer in the brain. The balance of evidence to date is reassuring that mobile phone use for less than 10 years does not cause cancer. However, uncertainties remain with regard to longer-term use. Mobile phones are still a very relatively new technology and I believe that after using them for a period of time it can help or lead to the cause of brain tumors and cancer in the brain. Scientists have suspected that this radiation might increase the risk of brain cell damage leading to tumors, and in 1995 they found this to be the case in rats. Yet just months earlier, an analysis of the most rigorous studies found convincing evidence linking the use of handheld phones to brain tumors, especially in users of a decade or longer. Cell phone radiation may be gradually frying our brain, research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Using a first-of-its-kind technique for measuring electromagnetic radiation, researchers found the radiofrequency field generated by your cell phone cases brain tissue to heat up and can cause further damage to the brain. Although some researchers believe that cell phones can’t cause brain problems or even tumors. Some argue that it takes years for something to come up and that’s why they believe that most of the research can’t be done because it isn’t creditable. David Gultekin, Ph.D., a researcher at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, argues, “Your brain is absorbing radiation from your cell”(Para 2). While Gultekin and his colleagues can’t say exactly how much cell phone radiation exposure is safe, the World Health Organization has classified radiofrequency fields as possibly carcinogenic, meaning exposure may put you at greater risk for brain cancer, the study explains. Devra Lee Davis, Ph.D., point out “ I know people aren’t going to stop using cell phones, but there are steps they can take to lower their exposure”(Para 5). Davis says that distance is key; manufactures like Apple and Motorola recommend keeping your cell phone at least 10 millimeters-or the distance of a pencil- away from your body at all
It All Started with a Phone Call
“Ma’am, are you expecting,” said the paramedic after being shot twice in the back. “Umm, I don’t think so,” said Ta’Quisha, fading in and out of consciousness. The paramedic tried to perform and ultrasound in the ambulance just to make sure there wasn’t any uncertainty, and it turned out that she was pregnant and losing tones of blood. The paramedic decides not tell he so she does not panic even more than she already is. They race to the hospital going at least 95…
What I Know for Sure
The Terrifying Phone Call
Every time I hear the clock ticking on the wall, watching second, minute, hour, and day that goes. Knowing I will never get to hear her voice again, it breaks my heart. As I approached my grandparent’s house, all I could see was red and blue flashing lights reflecting off the house. When I whipped into the driveway the first two people I saw were my cousin Kameo, and her boyfriend Josh. My brother Louis ran straight to Kameo and I ran to Josh…
– MAKE AND RECEIVE PHONECALLS
0.1.1: There are many different features to a phone system. A few being, hands free, hold, redial and being able to swap between 2 calls. Most of these features are used by just pressing a button on the handset.
0.1.2: the reason for identifying the purpose of a call, before making it is so you know what information you need to get or give. Also so you know what the out come of the call needs to be, for example you need to have paid/cancelled/booked or have some sort…
Contrast Texting vs. Phone Calls
As the world is constantly evolving, technology is becoming more and more
advanced, as well as the way humans use technology to benefit their everyday lives.
Before 1954, televisions only produced film in black and white. Imagine watching your
favorite TV show without color, it would be boring! Technology serves to provide
humans with entertainment, and colored television enhances the experience. Along with
providing entertainment, advances in technology have made communication much…
Can phone calls kill you?
THESIS: Unless the risks of cell phones are shown to outweigh the benefits, we should not restrict their use in moving vehicles.We should educate the public about the dangers of driving phone calling and prosecute irresponsible phone users under laws on reckless driving.
I. Scientific studies haven’t proved a link between use of cell phones and traffic accidents
A. Most states do not keep records on accidents…

Texting and Calling
The mobile phone industry has been growing rapidly in the past few years. People communicate everyday. Two major ways of communicating are text messaging and phone calls. Nowadays, text messaging has been a big thing around the world. Many people use it as their main source to communicate, as opposed to speaking on the phone. Texting and phone calls accomplish the same task. They both have many similarities and differences like: They both are means of communication…
