According to a recent study, 65% of smartphone users sleep with their smartphone on their mattresses. Despite the fact that some people use their phones while sleeping to listen to music, meditate, or utilize other calming apps, there has long been controversy concerning the negative effects of this habit on one’s health.

In this article, we will look at some of the reasons why you should avoid sleeping near our  phone, as published in Medical news today.

 One of the  reasons to avoid sleeping near phones is that it causes sleep disruption.

We predict that it will ring, beep, or vibrate because it is a device. Only a small fraction of people are resistant to the FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) problem, which causes them to check their phones long after they’ve chosen to go to bed. As a result, the majority of a person’s nap time is spent in REM, which comes before deep sleep.

 Secondly it Increases brain activity.

According to scientific research, persistent exposure to electromagnetic radiation can weaken the blood-brain barrier, allowing albumin to enter the brain. The phone’s wireless radiation accelerates even the brain’s blood glucose.

It may also result to cancer.

Before we can discuss phone radiation, engineers must first settle on acceptable SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) limits. Despite the lack of strong scientific evidence linking mobile phones to cancer, the WHO issued a discretionary warning to keep them away from young children. Several researchers have claimed the opposite.

Another one is reproduction issues.

When pregnant women are exposed to electromagnetic radiation, there is a potential that their unborn children will have genetic defects. As a result, male sperm production and quality.

More so, it fire risk. When pregnant women are exposed to electromagnetic radiation, there is a potential that their unborn children will have genetic defects. As a result, male sperm production

Conclusively, many people sleep with their phones under their pillows because they are so obsessed with them. Pillows have caught fire as a result of this. And also, you should end with an advice and reference.
