Your phone is a magnificent tool. You are capable of being able to see someone across the world and you have the world’s information at your finger tips. Is it possible that it would ever try and harm you? Well, yes there were the Samsung phones blowing up, but besides that. Something as simple as looking at your phone’s screen could harm you.
I think that we are all a little guilty of using our phone before going to bed. Whether you are watching or movie or making a Facebook post, you probably use it. Staring at your phone screen will make it so that it takes longer to fall asleep. According to a study, using your phone before you go to bed will ruin sleep efficiency and longer time to fall asleep. Apparently, it has to do with like the blue light from screens so this would also mean that using your TV and laptop before bed would effect your sleeping habits. This blue light suppresses the hormone in your brain called melatonin. Ohio State University did an experiment where they monitored 532 students whose ages ranged from 18-39. They had an average cell phone use time of 46 minutes. Using these electronics before bed was positively linked to insomnia. Better alternatives would be something like read a book, or go work out.
What other hidden dangers do our phones have? Probably not much, but we should still look into it more. I think that we should be careful with anything that we look at for long periods of time or put near our face.
