Dangers of using mobile phones
MOBILE phone has become an indispensable means of communications in our life. Radio waves originated by mobile phones pass on in all directions to detect the closest base station. Some of the radio waves enter into our bodies when we use a mobile phone. Contact with to radio wave emission might result in numerous health troubles. There is a chance that radio waves created by cell phones could hinder the charged apparatus such as pacemakers, monitors and machines in medical centres and electrical systems on aeroplanes. Scientists have mentioned other health difficulties of using mobile phones including changes in brain activity, reaction times, and sleep patterns. Cell phone towers radiate high-frequency radio waves, or microwaves, that can be transmitted up to 45 miles. The nearer we are, the bigger the danger is. Using a mobile phone while driving or riding a motorbike can magnify the chances of having an accident by up to four times. Mobile phones not only carry significant data, but infectious germs too. The microwaves from cell phone towers can obstruct the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) of our body, resulting in health problems such as pain in head, retention loss, cardiovascular stress, low sperm count, birth defects and cancer. Durable exposure to EMF from cell phones leads to curtailing hearing function. Most mobile phones comprise probable skin allergens like nickel, chromium and cobalt that may cause dermatitis. Staring at mobile apparatus can lead to problems in our vision. Mobile device-screen is usually smaller than computer screen, which means we are more likely to squint and overtax our eyes while reading messages. It can be the cause of dry eyes, vexation and reddening. So, before we use our cell phone ceaselessly, think again!
