s is due to the radiofrequency energy emitted by cell phones (Senthil & Sakthi, 2015). Additional discoveries have found that the lead used to solder components from the cell phones together can cause damage to one’s central nervous system, as well as the immune and endocrine systems. Also, there are damaging developmental consequences to children’s brains (Zadok & Riikka, 2010). Researchers found that health risks include “headaches, difficulties in concentration, apathy, weakness and a variety of neurasthenic symptoms, which tended to be linked, at least partially, with the frequent use of mobile phones by the patients” (Szmigielski & Sobiczewska, 2000). All those health risks are linked to those who use a cell phone somewhat regularly. Meaning that not only can one potentially procure cancer, but there are also numerous developmental effects such as decreasing attention capabilities. Thus, radiofrequency energy emitted by cell phones along with all the hazardous components creates numerous health risks to the human population, such as cancer. One again, research and development should be the main root here in order to determine a solution. However, if creating alternate materials proves to be unreasonable, perhaps building a protective casing inside the phone so that the radiofrequencies and other hazardous components cannot leave the phone in a destructive way. A challenge with this would be to keep one’s phone slim, maintain the competitive advantage while also…
