I observe every doctor never keeps his mobile in pocket or near to him and use limited time.

Better to use Mobile for important works not for long chats and browsing fbook or watsapp videos shared – unnecessary information and stress ourselves ..


EMF doesn’t have Ions so there for they can not spread cancer.
its just a fake propaganda to stop developing countries.
Just like how they did controlled developing nations with climate change & IMF rate hikes.
