Cell phones run with slight radioactivity.

In the battery of the average cell phone, there are trace amounts of radio activity which are transmitted in small amount out of the phone. In small doses, the radiation causes little to no harm, but can be quite troublesome in large amounts. Let's say you carry your cell phone in your pocket all day. All day, the phone would be giving off trace amounts of radiation which can, in turn, affect the DNA within your cells, causing them to replicate incorrectly, this causes tumors or cancer. Hope this helps!
