    • Rutgers University (2009) states that cell phones are a danger on the road in more ways than one. The studies found the cell phone-fatality correlation to be true even when weighing in factors such as speed, alcohol consumption, and seat belt use.
  • 16. The National Cancer Institute Views
    • The National Cancer Institute (2011) states that cell phones are health hazardous because:
    • 17. 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.
  • 18. The National Cancer Institute Views
    • The number of cell phone calls per day; the length of each call, and the amount of time people use cell phones have increased. Cell phone technology has also undergone substantial changes.
  • 19. Effects of Cell phone
    • According to Dr. Kim (2011) regular exposure to radio frequency radiation may interfere with the electrical fields of our cells. Common health challenges that have been linked to regular exposure to radio frequency radiation include:
