Are Cell Phones Safe?

Why this is an issue

I believe that cell phones aren’t safe because someone can hack on to your phone and steal all of your personal information. Plus you can meet someone you don’t know and something bad can happen.

The pro's of this issue

1Use of a cell phone while driving is not inherently unsafe. 2Cell phones increase personal safety by providing an easy means of contacting others during an emergency.3Studies have shown an association between cell phone use and a decreased risk of certain brain tumors.

The con's of the issue

1Using a cell phone while driving, even with a hands-free device, is unsafe and makes accidents more likely.2Cell phone radiation may disrupt the functioning of pacemakers.3Prenatal exposure to radiation from cell phones may increase the risk of ADHD and other behavior problems in children.
