Cutting the phone cord isn't as popular as predicted

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usJesse Short, a 28-year-old employee with an insurance company, decided not to sign up for a fixed line when she moved to Manhattan four years ago. She figured her cellphone was all she needed for her active lifestyle. Then came the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and cellular networks became so clogged she couldn't call her family. Two years later the same thing happened during a blackout in New York and much of the Northeast. That finally convinced her to get wired. "After the blackout, I needed to use a pay phone," Ms. Short says. "That's when I realized I needed a landline." This article is great for the reason it demonstrates the reason you need land lines and examples why it can be a disadvantage not to have one. Unfortunately, there are none of the negative health effects being brought up in this article as to why cell phones can be dangereous but that is what my blog is for. For example, the picture posted above is of radiation penetrating the brains of a adult (10%), 10 year old (50%), and 5 year old (75%). I don't know about you but I don't like the looks of that at all. To find out what you can do to protect yourself go to Cutting the phone cord isn't as popular as predicted:
