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…
They weren’t police, but when Beth Ebel and her team of investigators walked up and down intersections in six major counties this year, peering into car windows to count how many drivers were using their phones, some drivers dropped them. Hid them. Pretended they’d never held them.
“We in public health have this fallacy that if we tell people why they shouldn’t do things, they won’t do them,” said Ebel, a trauma doctor and director of the Injury Prevention and Research Center at Harborview Medical…

Manage Use of Cell Phones on the Road
When a cell phone goes off in a classroom or at a concert, we are irritated, but at least our lives are not endangered. When we are on the road, however, irresponsible cell phone users are more than irritating: They are putting our lives at risk. Many of us have witnessed drivers so distracted by dialing and chatting that they resemble drunk drivers, weaving between lanes, for example, or nearly running down pedestrians in crosswalks…
years ago, Nokia was the biggest company that conducted and sold phones. They are famous for the quality of the case until now, which means you cannot break it even you throw it. But now, they are facing the loss of marketing rate as people are more care about the feeling and function.
As Samsung and Apple provide smart phone, which satisfy consumers a lot, Nokia encounters the market risk. Although they have conducted smart phone like IPhone, and even cooperate with Microsoft to change the situation…
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…
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.

A. Most states do not keep records on accidents…

“ Joshua , mijo wake up ! ‘’, yelled my mom as she rushed into my room shattering my
amazing dream I was having so peacefully and realized as I woke up startled. It was a cozy
saturday morning around seven am in Phoenix. It was beautiful at least until my mom told me
why she had woken me up. As I opened my eyes confused, trying to get my brain back from the
dream and feeling as if I forgot where I was I started at my mom wanting to know what had…
– 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…
