In daily life, there is not a single moment without a mobile phone. But too much smartphone light can make you blind. That’s what the experts say.
Our health is connected with small habits. But we neglect these very common things. Many people turn off the light in bed at night and use their smartphones. It’s noon to sleep! Its danger is more serious.
Experts say that smartphone light in the dark can lead to blindness. Not only this, this habit has an extremely adverse effect on our eyes as well as our brains. As a result, the rest of the body parts are also affected in various ways.
But the question in the minds of many is, how does the light of the smartphone harm our bodies? According to experts, the smartphone screen emits a kind of bright blue light, which helps us see the phone screen even in harsh daylight. This blue light belongs to the visible light spectrum. As a result, when using the phone at night, the brain gets confused by this blue light and takes it as daylight.
Because our brains have been programmed since the dawn of time to have daylight and wake time. On the other hand, the night is dark and it is time to sleep. Different systems of the whole body are regulated according to this rule.
According to a media report, the light emitted from the mobile consists of 7 color rays. But the blue ray is the strongest among them. So it also damages the most.
Doctors say that the blue light emitted by mobile phones becomes more intense at night due to turning off the room lights. The blue light from smartphones hurts the body’s production of a hormone called melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that is released at night to tell the body to fall asleep. And the lack of this melatonin disrupts the normal sleep pattern. Let’s see, what harm does the blue light of the smartphone do to the body?
1. Due to this, sleep is reduced. Not getting enough sleep at night hurts memory the next day.
2. Eye pressure. As a result, eyesight decreases.
3. Looking at the phone for a long time puts stress on the brain. It becomes difficult to concentrate on learning new things.
4. Pain is felt in the head, neck, and shoulders.
5. There is some evidence that it can cause eye damage, such as dry eyes, itchy eyes, blurred vision, difficulty seeing distant objects, and even risk of vision loss due to retinal damage.
6. Smartphone light can also disrupt hormones that regulate appetite, increasing the risk of obesity.
7. Prolonged exposure to light at night and insufficient sleep are linked to breast and prostate cancer.
Technology sometimes comes as a blessing to us, and sometimes it brings a curse. Depends on how you use it.
