Study: The Dangers Of Cell Phone Use

People who use mobile phones could be risking their likeability, warn researchers. A new study shows a worrying link between poor manners and the number of hours a day that a person uses their mobile phone. Those who made calls on a mobile phone for more than four hours a day had the worst attitude and the poorest quality manners, according to results released yesterday at the American Society for Behavioral Medicine annual meeting in New Orleans. Doctors believe the damage could be caused by the electromagnetic radiation emitted by handsets or the heat they generate, but the most likely explanation is that “people who talk on their cell phones all the time are just obnoxious pains in the ass.“
