7 Places You Should Never Ever Put Your PhonesLifepostJan 27, 2021 6:38 PM
Despite the fact that mobile phone manufacturers now use the “is-slim-can-fit-into-one-hand-and-pocket” line to get people to buy their products, research has revealed that there are some places your mobile phone has no business.
Also, in the wake of more and more people reporting a battery explosion on one part of their body or the other, it has become imperative to present you with facts and make my recommendation. You would not believe how much danger the location of your mobile phone poses to your life.
Keeping your phone in your pocket seems logical, but you could be doing more harm than good. According to Lilly Friedman, MD, this is actually the worst place to store your cell phone.
“When cell phones are on, connected to a wireless network, and placed in a pocket, the radiation is two to seven times higher than if it were placed in a purse or holster,” she says.
There is a correlation between radiation from a cell phone and tumour growth, she adds. Plus, radiation can change the structure of DNA and affect male fertility, according to Dr. Friedman.
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer also found that cell phone radiation is additionally carcinogenic to humans.
Merely sitting on your phone could cause health issues such as sciatica or other back problems as well.
Nowadays, it seems that practically nobody goes out without a cellphone with them. However, research shows that there are a lot of places where you shouldn't keep your phone for extended periods of time, since it may actually end up damaging your health or your phone.
Here are 7 places to avoid putting your phone:
1. Your Back Pocket.
There are a number of reasons why keeping your phone in your back pocket is a terrible idea. First of all, it's very easy to forget about your phone when it's in your back pocket, which could cause you to break it, lose it, or even dial somebody by accident. It could also disrupt your circulation, resulting in you feeling pain in your legs or stomach.
2. Within 6 Inches of Your Skin.
Research puts it that the most dangerous place a smartphone can be, in terms of radiation exposure, is within about six inches of the emitting antenna. You do not want any part of your body within that area. I find that sometimes, for the fun of it, we like to place our phones on our bodies. As long as your cell phone is on, it emits radiation intermittently, even when you are not actually making a call. So, placing a cell phone on your hip or cheek for an amount of time is giving that area of your body nearly continuous radiation exposure.
3. Front pocket.
Men don’t carry bags, so it’s more convenient for them to put their phone in a front pocket. But men’s health can suffer because of that. Studies have proved that the electromagnetic radiation of a phone adversely affects the quality and quantity of sperm. The longer a man keeps a phone in his pants, the higher the risk.
In medicine, there is still no consensus about whether cell phone radiation causes cancer. But according to some scientists, a phone in the bra increases the risk of breast cancer. So it’s better not to keep it there.
4. On your hip.
According to research, carrying your phone near your thigh weakens the hip bones. So take care of your bones, and put the device in a dense bag.
5. Hot places.
High temperatures are also harmful to electronics.
In hot weather, it is not recommended that you leave your phone in the car or on the beach. Also, it is better not to keep it next to the oven.
6. Under the pillow.
Many people place cell phones under the pillow as it functions as a morning alarm. However, such a habit can build up the heat and increase the risk of fire. Besides, LED lights from the screen can beset your sleep quality.
It is not a good idea to bring your cell phones to the toilet considering bacteria and viruses will end up in your cell phone surface and then to your hands and face while the use.
