Retrieved from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4350886/Naeem’s purpose was to explain to an audience with basic knowledge in health sciences, how the excessive use of mobile phones exposes the user to a form of radiation which can be absorbed by tissues close to the phone and this may lead to adverse health risks such as changes in the brain activity, reaction time and sleep patterns. The article is relevant as it provides sufficient evidence of why and how excessive use of smartphones may cause health complications.
The article is credible as the author holds many degrees in areas related to the topic and also because the journal is a scientific publication by Qassim University. The article is also reliable because the publication is only four years old.
