Day Fourteen: Still Waiting

no e-mails

Today is day fourteen, and it is a lazy Saturday for me. I have done nothing but relax today and wait for a response from the businessman and Verizon wireless representative that I contacted. It has been about five days now since I first contacted these people. I got an e-mail from the businessman who said he was busy, but he would contact me over the weekend to answer my questions. I am still waiting on that response. Since I was hoping to have the results of both interviews done by this week, I spoke with my brother-in-law and my sister.

My brother-in-law is a businessperson for some computer company in which I forget the name of. He says he owns a blackberry, and it has become a necessity to his job. He is constantly on the phone, or e-mailing people. Also, he has a long commute back home from work, and that he says increases his need for a cell phone in case something happens due to weather or other variables. In a simple summary, he said without a cell phone he would be unemployed.

When speaking to my sister, who is a physical therapist, she was unsure if cell phones could be used that much in order to cause cancer in people. She believed that there is such a tiny amount of some fancy term that I did not understand, that it cannot seriously affect a person except when exposed for long periods of times. When I asked about young kids as opposed to adults, she said since kids are still developing, there could be a chance of cell phones effecting them a little more than adults, but again the exposure is so minimal that it should not matter.

So in conclusion to both of my interviews, the verdict is that cell phones have become finely intertwined with the business community and the health effects of cell phones are virtually non-existent. Unless it adheres to the major principle of too much of something is never good.
