It has been reported for a long time that it is bad for our health to use mobile phones, cause the radiation does harm to our body. however, mobile phones have become an essential necessity in nowadays. people use it to communicate and do other things. How do you think of it?

Well, everything that is used or taken excessively is bad. Too much mobile phone usage may lead to some health problems. Just keep everything in moderation and it will be fine. =)

well, maybe you are right. everything should be used moderately. but it is becoming a tendency that everyone seems to have a mobible phone in hand. with the development of info-communication, mobile phones will be more prevalent than today.

Well, old cellphones with Beta Lithium Batterys were dangerous. Turning on the cellphone would burn somebody and has a possibly of exploding. Once you recharge one of those things they explode. Well, most lithium ion batterys have protectant volts so no worry. Hmm, radiation http://www.sciencenews.org/articles/20030222/fob1.asp this site says it only damages rats brains. But I don't think the radiation in some phones are enough to hurt human body.

Mobile phones have become a necessity only in the minds of people. Most could do just as well without them.. If they wanted to talk to someone, they could stop at a phone booth like we always used to. I can see where the are used so much, that your health can be affected.

I was going to say i do not worry because there have been no proven links. Then i saw the post above. Hmm, I am very glad I do not use mine a lot. I have it so people can get a hold of me because i have dial up. Hee Hee. I just got a call and we talked for 5 minutes. I hardly ever talk that long. Weird because I was answering here when I got the call.
