Let’s face it, we all like to browse the Net, play a game, or use some new application on the smartphone before going to bed.
You might want to check the weather forecast for the next day, chat with your friends, or see the pictures you took that afternoon. Yet, researchers are constantly examining the effects of smartphones on our health and well being and their findings are not positive.
You might have already heard of cell phone radiation, which is a thing numerous people worry about. Apparently, the blue light emitted by these phones causes various severe health problems.
“Blue light is part of the full light spectrum, which means we’re exposed to it by the sun every day. However, nighttime exposure to that light, which is emitted at high levels by smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other LED screens, may be damaging your vision. It also suppresses production of the hormone melatonin, which throws off your body’s natural sleep cues.”
Scientists have found that smartphones are linked to the following three health issues: Increased cancer risk; Sleep Loss; Eye Damage.
