ABSTRACT: Technology plays a significant role in our daily lives; no doubt, it has made our lives very easy with its unlimited advantages. Cell Phone is one of such device that has made our life so easy that we cannot even think of a world without it. This electronic device has multiple uses and functions. It has become an important part and parcel of our life. Without cell phones we usually feel incomplete. Trendy and stylish cell phones have become a part of fashion now days. But this very device emits electromagnetic radiation which is the emerging health concern of the 21st century. There is too great a risk that the ever increasing RF-based communications technologies represent a real danger to humans, especially because of their exponential, ongoing and unchecked growth. Every aspect of electrohypersensitive peoples' lives, including the ability to work productively in society, have healthy relations and find safe, permanent housing, is at stake. The DNA in living cells recognizes electromagnetic fields at very low levels of exposure; and produces a biochemical stress response. The scientific evidence tells us that our safety standards are inadequate, and that we must protect ourselves from exposure to EMF due to power lines, cell phones and the risk of many more known/unknown consequences. The issue of electromagnetic health hazards should be addressed seriously and appropriate measures to be taken while there is still time. In this paper, I tried to focus on the salient aspects of health hazards and intend to grow awareness amongst the common mass in the days to come.
