The chemicals or factors in the environment to which humans are exposed may cause adverse health effects. These are known as Environment Agents. Cellular or Mobile Phones are now integral part of modern telecommunications, which uses radio frequency energy or radiation for mobile communications. They transmit radio waves through network of fixed antennas called ‘base stations’. Large number of users showed adverse health effects which are to be associated with cell phone use. This could potentially be a widespread public health concern. Current scientific evidence has not conclusively linked cell phone use with adverse health problems, but more research is needed. The National Toxicology program studies may help to clarify any potential health hazards from exposure to cell phone radiation. According to cell phone study, in the journal of American Medical Association, mobiles show effect on brain activity .In this study of effects by National Institute of Health scientists, it is found that 50 minutes of cell phone usage elevated brain glucose metabolism. Discrepancies among studies on the effects of Radio Frequency electromagnetic fields from cellular telecommunications highlighted the need for additional research. According to World Health Organization, mobile phone use is ubiquitous with an estimated 6.9 billion subscriptions globally. It will conduct a formal risk assessment of all studied health outcomes from Radio Frequency field exposure by 2016.
