The Environmental Cost Of The iPhone

Admit it. You know you’re always on your iPhone, but did you know it comes with a price? In the latest BBN3 news feature from our friend Josuha Dela Cruz aka Jokway discusses the unhealthy discharges of iPhone 4 production, and what can be done to alleviate the issue. Not only does the iPhone 4 boast a brand new antenna design that encircle the device, but a new printed circuit board and battery. These parts are produces in China using lead and cadmium. Recent reports from Habitat.com shows that at least 4,000 Chinese people, most of whom are children are discovered to have unsafe traces of lead in their blood. The question that arises is will people still buy the iPhone?
