My cellphone is going to make me have diarrhea but I'll never stop using it!

Whenever somebody tells me that cell phones are bad for you, are going to give me cancer or make me sick, I pretty much just turn away and ignore them. Yes, I know, the radiation and blah blah blah. Honestly, I just don't care because, to be honest, at this point I could not possibly live without my smartphone. Even now, when I heard that my cell phone has as many germs as the handle of a bathroom door (GROSS!) and is probably going to give me the flu, diarrhea, or an eye infection, I just can't put it down.

I'm certainly not going to put my iPhone down any time soon! Even if it does give me diarreah… at least I'll have something to read in the bathroom!
