Are mobile phones harmful to health? I have listened many times there are many problems related to mobile phones. What you know about them, I have seen in a news channel that heavy use of mobile phone can cause the brain cancer also. But why now they are telling each time when there is no option left for people.

I have always heard that cell phones are harmful. I believe the reports that are out there about them. I never use my cell phone without an ear piece to it. If I forget the ear piece I turn on the speaker phone to talk to someone. I never put it up to my ear.

I think that we have all heard that mobile phones can be harmful to our health for a variety of reasons. However, I'm not so sure about accepting it to be a truth. The reason for this is because of the fact that mobile phones are a fairly new technology and therefore I don't think that there has been enough time pass to actually be able to definitively establish whether or not this is the case. With that said, almost everything that we do is harmful to our health in some way or another, so the fact that they could be harmful to our health doesn't mean that I am going to stop using mine.
