say something about what people should do based on above Model Mobile phones have advantages and disadvantages. My view is that we need to know the disadvantages so we can enjoy the advantages of mobile phones.

The advantages of cell phones is that people feel safer with them. They can call for help in an emergency, like a traffic accident. Another advantage is they make it easy to get in touch with friends at any time, so it is no problem organising things with friends.

Some disadvantages are that cell phones are annoying in public, for example, in the cinema. Also, there are health risks connected with cell phones. There have been cases of people getting cancer from them because they give off radiation. We should be aware of this danger.

In conclusion, cell phones are useful, but they also contain dangers. We should find out more about these dangers by doing some research. Q 7
