Specialists told about the main dangers of mobile phoneIn the world of the vast majority of adults, adolescents and even children own mobile phones. It is no secret that for the most part they are an integral part of life. But are they safe?

With proper use and regular cleaning cell phones do not pose a serious problem for most people. Scientists still determine their degree of influence on people who appear with prolonged use, but there is no conclusive evidence that they cause health problems.

However, if you do not use them properly, you can put yourself in danger.

1. Death in the name of an ideal photo

In the summer of 2016 a German tourist died while being tried to take a photo in Machu Picchu, the historic Inca fortress in the south of Peru. While in Oliver Park, 51, he entered a dangerous forbidden zone to take a picture with a good angle on his phone.

Ignoring the safety signs, he asked his friend, a tourist to photograph it. At a time when he was doing "flying selfie" in flight, he slipped and fell from the cliff edge. It is not known whether he had time to make a coveted shot or not, but the conclusion is clear: be careful doing selfie!

History repeated itself in July 2016. Colleen Burns, 35 years old, wanted to capture a photo at the Grand Canyon, but suddenly stumbled and fell into the canyon. To survive after the fall failed.

Another South Korean tourist has died in the Amazon rainforest after falling from a height of 1600 feet waterfall gocta. Japanese tourist died doing selfie at the Taj Mahal in India after falling down the stairs.

And it's not isolated cases. People expose themselves to danger, to get the perfect photo - and sometimes even at the same time breaking the law. In March, a Briton and a Frenchman were arrested for posing nude in a photo in Machu Picchu.

Tip: if your idea with selfie or photo looks dangerous, it is most likely true. Ask yourself if the message is on Facebook or Instagram to be arrested or to risk their lives?

2. Problems with vision

Using cell phones, tablets, computers, and watching your favorite shows on the TV may cause eyestrain and other vision problems. About one-third of adults use electronic and digital devices from four to six hours a day.

Looking at the screen for such a long period of time, a person can get unwanted problems such as redness or irritation of the eyes, dryness, blurred vision and other problems associated with the inability to change the situation: back pain, neck and headaches.

Jacqueline Busingye, MD, assistant professor of ophthalmology at the School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, said: "Some people believe that when you take a long look at the screen, your eyesight may be due to this change, and can develop myopia. This matter is still being studied, but some studies have shown that this may well be true. "

3. Talk on the phone and SMS while driving

Cell phones are the cause of about 1.6 million road accidents a year in the US, which, in turn, is the cause of half a million injuries and 6,000 deaths (according to the Department of Transportation). People who are typing on the phone while driving are 23 times more likely to have an accident.

At the moment, around 660 000 drivers in the United States are using cell phones or other electronic devices while driving, and this number has remained stable for 6 years, since 2010, according to data provided by DT.

4. Microbes and disease

Studies show that accumulates on your phone more germs than a toilet seat (10 times more, to be exact). The major problem is that people often neglect brushing their phones. It is worth a special mention about the people who use the bathroom without washing their hands, and then taking up the phones.

As a result: Phones may contain coliform bacteria, fecal plaque and many other interesting surprises, which can lead to fever, vomiting and diarrhea.

5. Cancer?

It is unclear whether cell phone use causes cancer, but there is a strong presumption that in any case can not be ignored. Radio waves emitted by the phone, not yet fully understood, but the fact remains that they affect you when you put your electronic device beside your head or under your pillow while holding it in your hand and keep it in a pocket of clothes, walking around the city .

Perhaps we need to think about how to spend less time in the immediate vicinity of the phone and other electronic devices.
