Scientists Reveal the 10 Places Where It’s Not a Good Idea to Keep Your Phone

It's hard to locate a person without a telephone nowadays. And overseas, there is a growing number of cell phone customers! We tie ourselves to them and hold them in our hands. Everywhere, in the tub and in the bed, we take them with us. But it can be risky for the device and your well-being to keep your phone in some locations.

ModernWoman has made a list of 10 places where your cell phone shouldn't be stored. Check out why you better not charge a telephone close to bed at the end of the article.

1. Back pocket

You will absolutely take your phone in your pants' back pocket. It is very convenient. However, we will confront the following challenges by choosing this place:

  1. Phones are equipped with touch screens, which respond more than fingers. This is why dialing an emergency number is really straightforward, because it isn't really known. 30% of 911 emergency calls happen for this reason.
  2. Do your stomach and legs also feel pain? This may also be a result of your pocket phone.
  3. It is very easy to forget or lose the telephone

2. Front pocket

Men don't carry luggage, but putting their phones in their front pockets is more convenient. However, men's health may suffer as a result of this. The electromagnetic radiation from a phone has been shown to have a negative impact on the quality and quantity of sperm in studies. The greater the danger, the longer a man holds his phone in his trousers.

3. Bra

There is also a debate in medicine about whether cell phone radiation causes cancer. However, other scientists believe that wearing a phone in your bra increases your chances of developing breast cancer. As a result, it's best not to leave it there.

4. On your hip

Carrying your phone close to your thigh weakens your hip bones, according to findings. So, protect your bones by storing the device in a thick bag.

5. Just against your skin

Keep your phone away from your skin at all times. When you do this, bacteria from the phone's screen and buttons are moved to your face's skin, bringing electromagnetic radiation even closer. But how will we be able to get on the phone then? Between the device and your skin, leave at least 0.5-1.5 cm.

6. On the charger

Charging your phone has no negative effects on your wellbeing (except only for electromagnetic radiation if you were so close). However, it is not a good idea to leave your phone charging overnight. This will improve the battery's performance and reduce the phone's battery life.

7. Cold places

Take care of your phone if it gets chilly outside and the temperature drops below zero. Do not leave it in the street or in your garage for an extended period of time. The difference in temperature is extremely dangerous to electronic devices. Condensation forms when you return your device to a warm environment, which can cause issues with the phone's internal components. If you spend a lot of time outdoors during the winter, invest in a "warm" phone case.

8. Hot places

Electronics suffer from high temperatures as well. It is not advisable to leave your cell phone in the car or on the beach during hot weather. It's also not a good idea to keep it near the oven.

9. Stroller

In a rush, moms would often place their phones in the stroller. This, according to other experts, is risky. Cell phones have the potential to cause behavioral issues in children, such as hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder.

10. Under your pillow

Keep your phone out of your pillowcase. This is because of the following factors:

  1. Notifications are also sent late at night, causing the screen to glow. Melatonin production is influenced by external light. All of this causes issues with sleep, which is critical for the body's health.
  2. Electromagnetic radiation can cause headaches and dizziness if it is exposed to it for an extended period of time.
  3. There have been phone blasts and fires in the past. Covering your phone with a pillow increases your chances of this happening. When a phone is charging, it generates heat, which cannot escape through the fabric of a pillow. It's best to charge it anywhere other than your bed or other people.

These suggestions may seem counterintuitive, but your health should always come first. Please share this article with your friends; they need to be aware of it.
