Have cell phones helped or hurt the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    All cell phones contain harmful chemicals which are harmful to the environment. They have persistent metals, which do not degrade, as well as bioaccumulative metals, which become toxic over period of time. Cell phones contain cadmium (the 7th most harmful known chemical), lead, nickel, and mercury. Most cell phones are not disposed of properly and as a result, metals from the phone leak into the environment and cause a series of problems in the environment.

    The EPA predicts that over 150 million cell phones are end up in the trash each year, which equals 75,000 tons of toxic material waste. In addition, cell phone radiation is believed to be one of the potential causes of Colony collapse disorder, which causes bees to not return to their hives.
