      @228heaa28 very good and important question

      Radiation from cell phones is too weak to affect our bodies. However, cell phones emit radio waves which could cause damage to our bodies by changing the way our cells behave. This is because the radio waves could potentially damage the DNA in our cells. But I should say that, to the best of my knowledge, there is need for more scientific evidence, research to be conducted to prove that this could happen and also the rate at which it can happen. Maybe when you finish school you can research on the effects in mobile phones on the health of individuals – that would be cool 🙂
