Radio waves use a kind of radiation called electromagnetic radiation and which is tied into science, each mobile phone keeps in touch with a tower called a base station . Overuse and/or overexposure in cell phone usage stems mostly because the ability to access the internet on the go. Teens have been the most voracious online users for years. One fourth of teens use their cell phones or smart phones as their primary way of accessing the internet.
