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.

This has caused major concern even though people say the link between cancer and mobiles is unproved and unclear.

This theory is quite unrealistic and impracticable, so would be extremely difficult to impose. Additionally by using technology further, scientists may find a way of stopping the radiation produced from phones affecting us, but this will require a large amount of funding to work out and will take time due to research allowing for experiments to be put into practise. Conclusion Overall, I have found in producing this report, there is no concrete evidence to support the claims made against mobile phones. Although there are certain raised issues which need to be investigated more thoroughly if they are to be proved to be true. 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.
