Mobile phone zombies occupy our streets. Their heads stare down into their device held with both hands or with the phone pressed to the ear.
The same contracted mindset shows itself on trains, the underground, airports, buses, transportation, restaurants and coffee shops. Any addiction converts people into zombies.
World Health Organization (WHO) classified cell phone radiation as a “possible human carcinogen” due to an increased risk of brain cancer from long-term and heavy use of cell phones.
The frequency of use from wake up to sleep of the mobile phone develops numbness, irritation, a short attention span and disconnection from the real world.
