The Positive Side of Cell Phones

At last, some good news

(HealthDayNews) -- You've heard all the bad stuff. Cell phones rot your brains. Cell towers also do.

And if you aren't losing your mind because of the radiation, you've noticed the people who sit down on a bus or train, pull out their cell phones, and carry on long conversations about absolutely nothing. Or drive by in their car, waving and dialing rapidly.

But, according to Accident Analysis and Prevention, cell phones do have a positive side.

A survey conducted in Australia found that 1-in-8 cell phone users used their phones to report a traffic accident; 1-in-16 used their phones to report a medical emergency, 1-in-20 used their phones to report a crime, and 1-in-45 dialed for help when they were lost.
