They are those without whom we cannot live our life. Or, life feels as lonely as in a restricted place like jail or other confinements. The best or worst example of this category is Cell Phones.

We leave our cell phones not for a single moment and if, we could not find it near us, it becomes the cause of panic. Even our business and personal relationships are hanging by this thread only, as these devices keep you connected even when you are not in real terms. So before getting indulged in to the excessive usage or love for these devices, we must come face to face with the facts about them. They might be interfering with our natural and healthy life. Let us look at some of the facts about them as a radiation transmitter.
