The Negative Effects Of The Health Components Of Cell Phones

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. …show more content…
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 adding in protective layers. Another alternative could be to find a new form of telecommunication, perhaps the issue with radiofrequencies will not be affected by this new communications system. However, the challenges include convincing the public of the problem, and getting everyone to change the way they …show more content…
However, the decline in use, traveling and disposal carbon footprints is impressive. A potential solution would entail developing these factories to a higher standard, meaning more efficient complexes, with state of the arc facilities and all the appropriate technology to maximize efficiency and minimize carbon footprints, this would come with several challenges, as the companies would need to shut down their operations or move the operation elsewhere while the changes are being made. The most popular recommendation involves bringing back manufacturing from China and other cheap labour countries to the home country. This would practically remove the transportation emission as the manufacturing will be done all in the home country rather than throughout the world. This would bring many challenges with it, such as the minimum wage in developed nations is about 10 times higher than the price it is in these developing nations. So the company would either need to cut back its labour force or pay significantly more money to its
