Pros For Cellphones

Cellphones are Useful and Not Harmful

Cellphones

Some say that cellphones are harmful to the human body or they are not useful, I disagree. Cellphones are both useful and non-harmful in many ways. Cellphones are both useful in and out of school and having one comes with responsibility. They are also helpful to many parents, along with many safety reasons. Another big part is they are not harmful to anyone's health.

Responsibility

With having cellphones comes responsibility. Many children now a days are getting cellphones at younger ages. With children getting them at younger ages this teaches them responsibility at a younger age because, they have to keep track of the cellphone along with not breaking it or losing it.

Parents

Cellphones are great for parents in many ways. If children have cellphones their parents/guardians will be able to contact them when they are out and not with their parents/guardians. Some cellphones now a days have tacking GPS decides in them so if a child was to get lost and their parent was not able to contact them, they can track their cellphones if they still have it on them.

Safety/Emergencies

Emergencies and Safety have become a big part about cellphones. Being able to contact the police, fire department, hospital when needed has made the difference between life and death for some people. Having cellphones for older children will help in a situation where the child has gotten into a car accident, their car breaks down, or if they get lost. Cellphones have played a big role on these situation by the child being able to call for help when they need it.

Health

Some say that having cellphones can cause cancer or other health problems but, radio frequency radiation from cellphones is non-ionizing and is not powerful enough to cause cancer. Since cellphones are non-ionizing they are different than X-rays and ultraviolet light. There has been no rise in the rate of brain cancers despite a massive increase in the use of cellphones. If cellphones we're causing cancer, there would be a significant increase in cancer. (Are Cellphones Safe?)
