The Effects of Cell Phone Radiation on the Human Body: An Overview


  •   Jai Om


In this research article, an overview is provided of all the plausible effects that cell phone radiation might have on a human body. The number of cell of regular cell phone users has exploded around the world, and cell phones have become an integral part of our lives in the recent past. Therefore, this paper strives to answers public questions regarding the safety of using cell phones. It analyses previous research that has been done in the field to provide concise answers. The article also supports the motion that cell phones can be harmful in the long run; however, there is no conclusive evidence. The future research should be made more streamlined, and focus on human body systems.
