How many times a day have you heard questions like these? “Do you have a cell phone”? How many calls do you make on it daily?”. I am sure many, many times! Phones are part of our life. We can’t live without phones, but it’s important to know that our phones can be really dangerous for our healthy and for our social life. If you go to a place where teens meet, shopping centres, schools, cinemas, concerts, etc…,you will notice that almost every kid has a cell phone. And this is true all over the world. It’s proved that teens spend an average of an hour a day talking on cell phones and sending tons of text messages a day. The results can obviously really dangerous:
-traffic accidents are the main cause of teenage fatalities. Drivers who use a cell phone while driving can easily lose control of the vehicle;
-most cells are full of germs, which can be responsible of serious healthy problems :
-teens who use cell phones too much are more likely to be anxious and depressed;
-text messages are often used by bullies to torment their victims;
– teens who receive and send text messages or calls at night are more likely to be tired and less able to focus during the day.
Of course, they are part of our life and they are an asset in our modern society because you keep in contact with your friends and yourr family in every moment of your life, but it’s important not to overuse them. Phones can be terrible objects, if not used in the correct way and cause as much problems as you think possible. So, my idea is “let’s use our phones correctly and responsibly”.
