Remember smoking cigarettes? Well, back in the day, no one knew about or for that matter, paid any attention to what would eventually happen to one’s lungs when submitted to the frequent use of tobacco. Practically everybody smoked. I’d even venture to say you smoked or someone close to you smoked, maybe even still do. Well, fast forward 60 or 70 years and look what the attitude about smoking is today. Even secondhand smoke is considered dangerous.

OK then, let’s take a look at our cellphone trend today. Or, shall we say, habit. Just about everybody has one, including our children. Be it for safety, curiosity, convenience, business, all justifiable reasons to have one . . . I suppose. Fact is, our present technological society almost determines we need one.
