A repost on the dangers of mobile phones

Extracts from this document...


A Report on the Dangers of Mobile Phones Mobile phones are technologically advancing continuously in the communications sector but recent reports have claimed they are now a danger to us and our health. Although there are many benefits to using them there are also many supposed drawbacks.

In my opinion there is no sufficient evidence which proves mobiles are a danger to us so we therefore cannot act upon theories only. ...read more.
