Cell phones are widely-used devices in society today. The cell phone is a useful resource, and that's a fact. Cell phones today are used for many more purposes than simply making a phone call. Cell phones can now record videos, take pictures, surf the web, and provide endless hours of entertainment in various other ways. Unfortunately, cell phones do not only bring good news. Most cell phone users are not concerned with the bad influences, health issues, and other problems that cell phones can cause. An MIT study showed that the cell phone was voted as the, "top invention that people hate the most, but can't live without." Cell phones in most cases are good to have, but are they as harmless as they seem? Although cell phones are a useful and valuable tool, they can cause brain damage, impair the body, and influence societal issues.
