A Cancerous Call? Cell phones are one of the greatest inventions of modern times. About one-third of the US population owns a cell phone. The UK’s National Radiation Protection Board states that Global Systems for Mobile Communications (GSM) networks are being used in over one-sixth of the entire world (Easton 164). The long lasting question of whether or not cell phones cause cancer is yet to be solved. There are many people who don’t really want to know if they cause cancer because the fact of the matter is that whether or not they do or don’t, almost everyone will still continue to use them. Cell phones are a critical part of everyone’s everyday life. Whether or not cell phones cause cancer should not be a question that scientists are researching because no has yet to prove its scientifically true so continuing to try to do so is just a waste of money. If in the unlikely instance it is proved that cell phones do cause cancer, many phone companies will ask plenty of questions regarding how this was discovered and why they should try to prevent it. The proof that cell phones cause cancer is still debatable. If someone was diagnosed with cancer, it does not necessarily mean that cell phones are the cause. If almost every adult owns a cell phone in the US, then you could technically say that everyone who has or had cancer is because of cell phones. I’m no scientist but I am pretty sure there are other causes of cancer than just cell phones. Public health scientist George Louis Carlo and Journalist Martin Schram have recently stated that even if the actual risk that cell phones cause cancer is small, that would mean over millions of people worldwide would develop cancer or other health problems. This statement is absurd.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
