While cellphones provide an efficient way of communication, no one can deny the fact that it's harmful to our health as well. According to the World Health Organization, cellphones use transmission radio waves through a series of base stations. These stations hold radio frequency waves which cause ionization in the human body. There are other health risks which are caused by use of cellphones. They are the following.
1) Cellphones cause negative emotions. This is specifically true for those who are trapped in between two strangers who are talking loudly in their cellphones. This scenario usually happens in public places and public modes of transportation like trains. The victims feel disgust and show annoyance towards the talking strangers. Such ill feelings can affect how the victims are going to spend the rest of their days at work or somewhere.
2) Cellphone use causes increased stress levels. According to a study conducted at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden cellphone owners are pushed towards the edge when they hear constant ringing, vibrating alerts, and other sound notifications for reminders. Women experience sleep disturbances while men experience stress.
3) Cellphone use weakens the immune system. Germs are collected in your handset as you use it constantly. Some studies showed that a certain percentage of E.coli, a bacteria found in fecal matter, are present in cellphones and that this bacteria can be easily transferred when one person borrows another person's cellphone.
