Are Cell Phones Killing Us?

Recent revelations of late have raised a lot of questions surrounding the long-term safety of mobile phones. Frankly, whether or not the rate of cancer and other fatal ailments is related to the use of mobile phones or other wave radiation causing devices isn't the biggest problem we face.

In fact, more people are dying all the time because of texting while driving. Sure, you may be willing to take the risk, but what about the mother of two in front of you? Mobile phones are being used as a distraction to keep us from paying attention important tasks like driving and walking.

While the signal radiation caused by these devices may or may not increase the risk of health problems down the line, an immediate concern surrounding what people are doing with these devices is another story.

That's my take on the question. What's yours?
