Disadvantages

  • may cause cancer
  • reduces social interactions
  • distracts us
  • devalues human interaction

There is no doubt that cell phones have a variety of advantages and disadvantages. Personally, I think the best way to keep ourselves from getting tunnel vision, is using cell phones only when you really have to, then when we are with someone, we will actually spend time with them. 

What do you guys think? Is cell phone usage too out of control or is it justified? Please feel free to comment.
