Cell phones are an unavoidable part of daily life. Even if you do not own one yourself, you are exposed to them all the time whenever you enter the public areas. Most people think of their cell phones as something that they" just could not live without." Make sure you are informed about the potential health hazards associated with cell phone use that the cell phone companies do not want you to know. While studies are not conclusive, scientists are beginning to suspect that cell phone use could contribute to everything from headache to brain cancer. This is because cell phones emit electromagnetic waves and small amounts of radiation. While research done in the 1990's indicated that the radiation using a cell phone could expose you to is not really enough to do any damage, many experts are now abolishing that opinion. They recommend that, at the very least, children, teens and young adults avoid using cell phones except in emergencies.
