Test: Mobile phones

Mensaje  Compilator el Dom Jul 27, 2008 10:17 pm

MOBILE PHONES



Mobile phones are not a luxury item anymore. While they have improved people’s lives, they have some drawbacks and we need to be careful about when and where they should be used. Admittedly, they facilitate communication with other people anywhere at any time. Parents feel more relaxed knowing their children can get in touch with them immediately if they need help, and emergency services can be called without delay when there has been an accident. Advanced features such as e-mail services and image messaging are packed into extremely light and tiny models that fit into your pocket.
Yet mobile phones can be a serious threat to health, for children in particular. Experts warn that the radiation of this type of phones can cause headaches and affect your memory in a negative way, although this has not been proved convincingly. What is more, people who use a mobile phone while driving constitute a danger to others and to themselves and sometimes have had fatal accidents. Besides this, what for many people is a useful device can be a nuisance for others, who are always complaining about the constant ringing tones in public places. Some people even claim that mobile phones should carry health warnings as packets of cigarettes do.
