3: Cell phones are not safe because they can cause distractions while driving. | They can also cause radial illnesses | Have you ever tried driving while using your cell phone? Even though it is very dangerous we have all tried it before. Speaking and listening have very similar detrimental effects while trying to drive.(Kubose) Some jurisdictions have made the use of a cell phone while driving illegal. Cell phones should not be used while driving because they are one of the biggest distractions.
4: Reason 1: causes distractions while driving | -Driving while on the cell phone leads to most accidents today. 6% of auto accidents are caused by using a cell phone while driving. 2,600 people are killed by using cell phones while driving. 330,000 are being injured while driving while on a cell phone.(Ornes) | -It is 4 times likely to have an accident while talking on the the phone.The Brain has to concentrate and it can not focus while talking on the phone and concentrating on driving too. (Ornes)
5: -most of the million cell phone subscribers use phones in their cars. The industry say that cell phones are no worse than car radios. (Cell Phone Safety)
6: Reason 2:can cause many illnesses | -cell phones and your brain both transmit electrical signals which is absorbed by your body. (Huliek) | -It could take 20 years or more for the cancer in the body to be detected from the cell phone(Huliek)
7: -A way to decrease radiation is by keeping distance between the phone and the ear.(Health Beat) | -Another way to decrease the cell phone radiation exposure, people would only need to use the cell phone when it has a full signal.(Huleik)
9: Opposing | Some people think that cell phones are not harmful at all. They say they are not harmful because when your in trouble, you can use your cell phone to call someone for help. People also say that cell phones do not cause radiation. (Journer) I dont understand why people think this. Some of what they think is true but then again its still very dangerous.
10: Conclusion | In summary we should evaluate how much usage and how often we use cell phones. It is a known fact that cell phones give off a high percentage of radiation to our bodies. Therefore one might consider getting an ear piece, or mounting their cell phone in their car so that they are hands free. This will cut back on radiation and distractions with our cell phones. Cell phones should be carried in cell phone cases or purses instead of in your pockets, next to our bodies. We need to really consider limiting how much we use cell phones and when we should use them.
