If you're like me, your phone or tablet is probably the first thing you look at in the morning and the last thing you look at before bed.
All this screen time may be eating away at our sleep.
Studies have shown that being exposed to the blue-and-white light given off by phones, laptops, and other electronic gadgets at night prevents our brains from releasing melatonin, a hormone that tells our bodies it's nighttime.
That means it takes us longer to fall asleep. And many years of delaying sleep, researchers think, can mess with our internal body clocks.
Some experts suggest not using our devices for roughly an hour before bed could help us fall asleep faster.
I decided to go one step further and avoid looking at any screens from the time I left work until the time I went to bed every night from Monday to Friday.
Here are the 3 health issues that are linked with the use of smart phones at night:
1. It affects your time of sleep
Blue light has the ability to mess up with the production of melatonin, just like we have mentioned above, and this hormone controls the sleeping cycle of the body. If the body lacks sleep, the crooked sleeping cycle will result to numerous health problems, which includes the following:
-You will gain weight
-Issues with cardiovascular
-You will effortlessly get depressed
-Your memory alertness will be affected
-You will look odd and old, slower response time
2. It will damage your eyes
The exposure to blue light at night causes the damage of both retina and muscular degeneration, which results to the loss of central vision or the ability to see things in front of you, as well as cataracts.
It is not really that bad to use your mobile phones at night if there is an emergency or an urgent need to use it, the important thing is to just minimize your quality time with your mobile phone and always thinks about its consequences, as well as the better things that need to be done for your entire health.
3. The risk of cancer is slowly elevating
Elevated light at night results to disturbed sleep and this reason increases the risk of cancer, particularly breasts and prostate cancer.
Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant and it is the natural weapon of the body in fighting against cancer, however, it is being blocked by the blue light. If this happens once, it might become a big health problem, but you have to put in mind that continued use of mobile phones at night leads to severe health issues.
