The telephone has become such an integral part of our life that we keep it close to us even when we sleep. But what effect do these devices have on our health while we sleep?
There are many misconceptions regarding the hazards of smartphone radiation, but there are few scientifically credible justifications for its impact on the body. Sergei Kuzmenko, a Russian expert in digital product diagnostics, responded to this query.
“There is nothing wrong with putting your phone next to your bed at night,” Kuzmenko said. “Science has not demonstrated that its radiation affects the body, and no statistically significant link has been identified between the increased risk of acquiring diseases and the usage of mobile phones.”
However, Kuzmenko warns that it is very dangerous to look at the screen of the smartphone for a long time before going to bed, reports Sputnik.
“First of all, it’s bad for the eyesight. “Putting the phone in reading mode or night / dark mode slightly reduces eye strain, but does not remove it,” he explained.
“Second, it can disrupt sleep both psychologically (the nervous system is tense as a result of the news being read, and the brain tries to process all of the information received from the user) and physiologically (the nervous system is tense as a result of the news being read, and the brain tries to process all of the information received from the user) (brightness, according to some research, negatively affects of the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone).
In a statement for the RG portal, Kuzmenko said, “The ideal choice is to leave the smartphone an hour before bedtime and set an alarm for the next day.”
