Technology has advanced rapidly throughout the past ten years. Nowadays everyone uses a form of technology they can’t live without. For many people a form of technology they can’t live without is their cell phone. I use my cell phone for everything. I use it to keep track of time and to remind me when I have a doctor’s appointment coming up. More importantly, I use it to keep in touch with my friends and family. Cell phones have changed my generation. Now I can talk to anyone from around the globe. But when I think about it, do we rely on our cell phones too much? Then I find myself wondering, do cell phones improve or limit our society?
Cell phones have changed the way we go about life in many ways. They change the way we interact with people in our everyday life. They hinder our physical aspect of life without us even knowing. One of the biggest issues I see is the changes it creates in our classrooms from an educational standpoint. Cell phones have been negatively impacting our lives in some very important ways.
Cellular phones are the world’s most popular mobile device used by Americans today. What many Americans fail to realize are the negative impacts cell phones may have on someone. Cell phones are distracting, they can cause benign tumors and cancer, can used for cyber bullying, spread germs, and viruses, and are highly addictive.

In a world that is rapidly becoming faster paced, finding various means to keep up with the changing environment is a must. Cell phones are one of the most practical inventions of time that make this possible. However, the subtle effect they have on our culture today, their invasion of our privacy, and the possible health risks they may cause are reasons to reassess the value of this intriguing device. While cell phones may be valuable, they are also potentially harmful.
Today’s society accepted phones so fast and easily, that most of the things that can harm us, are actually some of our social norms that we don’t even realize we are doing. Cell phones can have effects on the way people think and act, their interactions with people in society, and the amount information people retain from the direct result of multi-tasking. Cell phones are a very important asset to people, and good resources of information, but they can have negative effects on people such as depression, anxiety, and addiction to the use of the cell phone. Distractions from cell phone use have also been linked to many motor vehicle accidents as well. Cell phones were created to make our lives better, and more efficient, but do they harm us more than help

However I firmly presume that we need to use this technology responsibly. Cell phones have many great uses, but when used improperly this amazing invention can be your worst
Cell phones can have negative impacts on the person’s cognition, especially when driving or crossing the street (Galvan). In fact, a person on their cell phone while driving pose the same chances of an accident as an intoxicated person. “A study stated that over 100 million drivers in the United States use their cell phone while driving.”Slow reaction time and inability to see traffic signals were common effects found when using a cell phone while driving (Strayer). These elements are limited due to an impairment in vision to everything around us (Podobnik). In businesses, particularly, this distraction is a growing matter in which cell phones are interrupting important tasks because people believe they can multitask by emailing, texting, or just checking social media for a brief moment. Our ability to multitask has not improved; instead, it has reduced our productivity and the quality and quantity of the work (Thornton). Another dangerous distraction with cell phones include the simple task of walking. These devices tend to make you walk slower and not realize the things ahead (Podobnik). Our increased cell phone use is lowering our perception and creating a hazardous environment with accidents and injuries (Thornton). These distractions and dangers could even potentially cause several health risks and should be widely considered more
The new "glorious" invention of cell phones seems to make lives easier, but they aren 't as great as people make them out to be. Cell phones were first invented in the early 70s (Szumski 17) and have since evolved into a deadly weapon, causing all sorts of health and safety issues including cyberbullying and brain tumors. Cell phones have also been linked to behavioral problems in teens and children, even without the facts it is easy to look at this generation compared to 20 years ago. This generation is more worried about their phone rather than an actual human being. When walking and on their phone someone bumps into another person and drops their phone, they check to see if their phone is okay and then afterwards say sorry to the person.
With 87 percent of American adults owning a cell phone (Jerpi, 2013), it becomes obvious that cell phones have become a staple device in today’s society. Although cell phones offer convenience, they arguably come with negative affects. Cell Phones have become one of the fastest emerging technologies (Campbell, 2006). With 87 percent of American adults and teenagers owning a cell phone (Jerpi, 2013), it becomes obvious that cell phones have become a staple device in today’s society.

Cell phones are progressively becoming more accessible and reliable as days go by in such a way that creates a safer and protected environment around us. The many ways and situations one can use a cell phone is becoming more free and diverse than what phones were intentionally made for, that is, to communicate through speech. Cell phones have become an anytime, anywhere tool used for texting, taking pictures, recording videos, making video calls, saving files such as a presentation, and many other things such as listening to music or playing games (Ling 22).
There are also actual life and death situations to consider in terms of cell phone dangers. I have heard that talking on a cell phone will driving a car is like having three alcoholic beverages and then driving. The National Highway Safety Administration admits that nearly 85 percent of cell phone owners use them while driving. Many states have been working to ban cell phone use for motorists, and the fact that people are outraged by this is somewhat disturbing.
You are driving around a town you notice toddler’s, college campus attendees, and teens in high school and they all have one thing in common. They are all using their cell phone while walking from point a to point b and not caring what is happening around them. It does not matter the age people are constantly using their cell phones or any other electronic device. Looking down towards the ground, not caring what is happening around them or what they are about to walk into.

There has been the increase of injuries related to the cell phone usage. Cell
