• They are believed to a distraction when driving or performing some other function at the same time. In my case it is true. I am distracted, more so when I am holding it to my head, and to a lesser extent when I use Bluetooth. The radio is not a distraction because I don't have to interact, I just listen. If I start to tune the radio then it becomes a distraction. CD's in the car are more of a distraction than the radio because I can see track numbers and skip or go back or change discs. As complex as our minds are you would think we could do many things at the same time.
  • They seem to draw us away from face-to-face interaction w/ others. We're always on the phone talking, texting, playing games, checking our e-mail or listening to music. I think they're making us less personally involved and less friendly. And I hate when people use them while driving. They might as well be drunk.
  • I should think cancer would be be enough of a worry. "There are three main reasons why people are concerned that cell phones (also known as “mobile” or “wireless” telephones) might have the potential to cause certain types of cancer or other health problems: Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy (radio waves), a form of non-ionizing radiation, from their antennas."
