In this high tech 21st century that we live in there have been numerous advancements to help us in our everyday lives. One of these things is the cellular phone. Everywhere you look, from school kids to top executives it seems like in our world today everyone has one of these devises. It is true that having a cell phone is very convenient and helpful most of the time such as emergencies, but not everyone knows of the potenial negative impacts theses phones have on our lives. In the past several years there have been numerous studies looking into this possible problem, common courtesy, theoretical health risks and harmful car accidents. Many have come to the conclusion that it is false and there is no risk behind using a cell phone, but there are others who continue to say that the risks are very high. I myself do not believe that cell phones pose a serious health risk like cancer and brain tumors just as long as they are used properly. The problem starts with people forgetting common courtesy. It happens all the time when your in a intimate dinner conversation at your favorite restaurant, when a personalized cell. In the past few years there have been court cases against cell phone companies stating that the phones caused substantial damage. One such case was A Maryland neurologist named Dr. Christopher Newman who filed an $800 million lawsuit against Motorola Inc., Verizon Communications Corp., Bell Atlantic Corp., Bell Atlantic Mobile Systems, Southwestern Bell Mobile Systems, just to name a few.(CNN.com 6/22/01) These are very large companies, and a lawsuit coming from a very educated man. But the question is, is there enough evidence to prove that the radiation from his cell phone is responsible for his malignant brain tumor. This case as well as a handful of others where thrown out due to the lack of evidence. Yet if there are this many people filling suits, there is definitely a need to investigate and look further into this supposed problem. People such as Dr. Newman say that only two minutes of exposure to emissions from mobile phones can disable a safety barrier in blood causing proteins and toxins to leak into the brain, which could increase chances of developing Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's as well as brain tumors. (Scientists at Sweden's Lund University) Scientists say exposure to the phones' low-level radiation causes red blood cells to leak hemoglobin and can lead to heart disease and kidney stones. Recent studies suggest that there is a link between cell-phone use and brain tumors, and the possibility that the microwaves are the cause but the studies were never concluded due to the time period need to conduct the study. On the other hand there are several sources that dismiss these accusations of the dangerous cell phones as rumors, it is just simply a way for people to make money some say. Understandably the majority of those individuals who say that cell phones are 100% safe are the owners of the cell phone companies. Of course they don't want to loose sales due to this possible problem. Look around as I stated before cell phones are everywhere, these companies would loose millions if any of these major health problems was confirmed. Recent research is confirming there is no scientific evidence to indicate health hazards from wireless communication devices, provided safety recommendations are met, says one of Canada's leading experts on electromagnetic fields. While strong fields can produce biological effects in the human body, radio-frequency devices, including cell phones, base stations and modems, produce very low fields and are not associated with health problems, Dr. Maria Stuchly (PhD) told the International Conference on Electrocardiology, Vectorcardiography and Bioelectromagnetism (Susannah Benady Aus "The Medical Post" (Kanada) vom 16.07.02:) Through research I have concluded that it is true that cell phones do admit a certain amount of radiation that has been recognized by cell phone companies, by they state that it is at a level so low it can not harm the human body, such as household microwaves. It is very easy to understand why people would try this claim for personal gain. Although most results are inconclusive, I think it is safe to say that for the time being cell phones are safe and will continue to be used.
