Since Cell phones have been invented, we have heard a lot about possible connection between brain cancer and cell phones. It has been found that, young generation associated with social networking sites such as Facebook, Tweeter, Pint rest and Instagram are likely to spend 1-3 hours even after going to bed. And they tend to keep cell phone under their pillow so that they can reply to any messages or notification as soon as they hear the notification sound. But this turned out to be a bad habit to keep cell phone under pillow.
This is still a question to millions, Is it really dangerous to sleep with a cell phone under pillow?
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DO SO?
Cell phones pump out electromagnetic radiation whenever they’re on – which means sleeping with one nearby boosts your exposure all night long.
Mobile emits harmful radiation due to transmission of signals around 900MHz. Keeping it under pillow may cause headache, muscle pain and the most dangerous brain cancer. Cell phones can also affect our memory, as there have been recent studies and researches done on animals kept in laboratories that have shown ill effects of mobile phone radiations on their memory. Cell phone radiation caused leaks in the brain tissues of rats that were exposed to this radiation for a test trial.
WHAT TO DO?
I know it’s hard to change the habit, here is the best solution.
- Put the phone on “airplane mode” (which shuts down the transceiver) or turn it off.
- Keeping cell phone several feet away while sleeping.
- Using speaker instead of talking directly into the handset.
- Text instead of talking.
- Use headphones or Bluetooth connectors.
