Well, if I called wrong number, why did you answer phone? – Cartoon caption by James Thurber.
But I say, “I will not pick up my cellphone even if you called right number. Message/Text me.”
Let’s put this straight: cellphones are a threat to both your privacy and your grey matter – in literal way.
You go to a party and find a really beautiful girl. You know that you have to talk to her. And that’s exactly what you do. You grab two glasses of champagne and head towards her. “Euhem,” you manage to utter. She turns to look at you. She smiles and you hand her champagne. Then out of nowhere, your cellphone vibrates in your pocket. “Oh shit!” you say. She glares at you and asks, “sorry?”
Damn cellphone. What’s more, it was only mum calling to check whether you are all right.
Anywhere you go somebody can call you. Little by little, you’ve become an answering machine. And you don’t even have a moment for yourself because cellphone always rings/vibrates when you least need it to. Because cellphones actually do obey Murphy’s Law!
But then you might say that you don’t even have a private life anymore, so why bother. Well you have to know that cellphones may damage people in other ways.
Only a small amount of energy is emitted by a cellphone. However even this amount will cause stress responses in your cells and affect your reflexes.
Cellphone radiation can even cause molecular changes in your cells. An experiment was performed by a Finish team to prove this. 4500 genes in human cells, cultured in laboratory, were exposed to cellphone radiation for only 48 hours. More than 20 genes were found to have had their activity rate interrupted. Now in your brain alone are billions of genes. Even if a small group of cells will be perturbed, group isn’t really small at all. It still contains several millions of genes. Are you prepared to lose these genes and consequently cells then?
