Conclusion

The hypothesis holds true: cell phone radiation was not intense enough to cook the dried corn seeds.

Studies have shown that the use of cell phones do not cause cancer or any other health problems to users. However, we are often advised to minimize our exposure to cell phone radiation. Most cell phones come with hands-free devices such as speakers or earplugs. These minimize direct exposure to cell phone radiation.
