In recent years, public fears over the radiation emitted from cell phones have led to several theories about the health conditions this radiation might engender.
Almost invariably, the assertions that the use of cell phones may lead to a higher risk of brain cancer, that their use by pregnant women may result in badly behaved children -- even a video that suggested that the waves from two cell phones could be used to cook an egg -- have been discredited by scientific investigation.
So here today we're going to provide you the list of bad effects cause by mobile to our human life and health.
Negatively Affects Emotions
The presence of a cell phone while two or more people are talking face-to-face can generate negative feelings toward the person who has his or her device visible. In two studies conducted at the University of Essex in the United Kingdom, researchers studied the effects of a mobile device during a nose-to-nose conversation. In the first study, 37 pairs of strangers were asked to spend 10 minutes talking to each other about an interesting event that happened with their lives within the past month. Half of the participants were seated in a secluded area with a mobile device present on a desk nearby whereas the other half remained without a cellphone. The results of the study showed that those who had a mobile device nearby were perceived less positive by the stranger, compared to the other participants without a cell phone present.
In the second study, researchers included 34 different pairs of strangers who were asked to discuss trivial topics where others were asked to discuss significant events which occurred into their life. Half of the participants chatted with a mobile device while with the stranger and the other half had a notebook. The results of the study showed that those who spoke about significant events in their lives with a notebook present experienced a feeling of closeness and trust in the stranger, unlike those with a cell phone. "These results demonstrate that the presence of mobile phones can interfere with human relationships, an effect that is most clear when individuals are discussing personally meaningful topics," said the researchers of the study.
Increases Stress Levels
The high frequency of cell phone use could have negative effects on our stress levels. The constant ringing, vibrating alerts, and reminders could put a cell phone user on edge. In a study conducted at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, researchers examined if there is a direct link between the psychosocial aspects of cell phone use and mental health symptoms in young adults. The participants of the study included 20 to 24 year olds who responded to a questionnaire, in addition to a one-year follow-up. Researchers found high mobile phone use was associated with stress and sleep disturbances for women, whereas high mobile phone use was associated with sleep disturbances and symptoms of depression in men. Overall, excessive cell phone use could be a risk factor for mental health issues in young adults.
Increases Risk Of Illnesses In Your Immune System
The incessant touching of your phone can harbor germs on your handset. The greasy, oily residue you might see on your cellphone after a day's use can contain more disease-prone germs than those found on a toilet seat. In a study conducted at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Queen Mary, University of London, researchers sampled 390 cell phones and hands to measure for levels of bacteria. The results of the study showed that 92 percent of the cell phones sampled had bacteria on them — 82 percent of hands had bacteria — and 16 percent of cell phones and hands had E. Coli. Fecal matter could easily be transferred by cell phones from one person to another.
Increases Risk Of Chronic Pain
Cell phones require constant use of your hands, especially when sending text messages and e-mails. Responding to messages at rapid speed could cause pain and inflammation of your joints. Back pain is also common with increased cell phone use, specially if you hold the phone between your neck and shoulders as you multitask. "Long periods of cell phone use cause you to arch your neck and hold your body in a strange posture. It could lead to back pain," says Healthcentral.com.
Increases Risk Of Eye Vision Problems
Staring at your mobile device could even cause problems in your vision later in life. Screens on mobile devices tend to be smaller than computer screens, that means you are more likely to squint and strain your eyes while reading messages. According to The Vision Council, more than 70 percent of Americans don't know or are in denial that they are susceptible to digital eye strain.
So these are some of the bad effects of mobile in human life.If you donot aware of these then it's time to get awared and make others aware as well by sharing this article.
