Cell Phones Give You Cancer

Cell phones can not only cause deaths, but they can cause deaths by giving you cancer. Cell phones send signals to nearby cell towers using RF waves. That is a form of electromagnetic energy that falls between FM radio waves and microwaves. The RF waves from cell phones come from the antenna, which is a part of the body of a phone. So when you hold the phone to the side of your face your body tissue absorbs the RF waves which gives you cancer, or a risk of cancer.
