This post will expose the wrong and dangerous places your phone shouldn\u2019t be.\n\nKeeping your phones in the wrong places can be dangerous for your health. It increases your exposure to electromagnetic waves which cause a lot of chaos in the body.\n\nHere are 9 Dangerous Places Your Phone Shouldn\u2019t Be\n1. Front pocket\n\nMen are affected by this more than women mostly because they don\u2019t carry bags. It is more convenient for them to put it in their front pocket.\n\nHowever, this has a negative effect as many studies have shown that the radiation from these phones can affect their reproductive health.\n\nThe electromagnetic radiation produced by these phones greatly affect the quality and quantity of sperm produced. Over time, it can lead to infertility.\n\nThe longer a man keeps putting his phone in the front pocket, the higher his risk of infertility by sperm damage.\nGo next page to continue\n\n2. Your back pocket\n\nA lot of people including you might be guilty of this. This feels comfortable, especially when you are not carrying bags and you need to free your hands.\n\nStudies have shown that the radiation coming from phones placed in the back pocket can lead to pains in the stomach and legs. Do you feel this frequently?\n\nThen check where you place your phone and change the position. It is best to carry phones in bags and not directly on our bodies. Putting your phones in your back pocket will also disrupt the circulation of blood in your body.\n\nApart from this, your phone can break easily, someone can pick it without you knowing, or it could even dial a number without you knowing.\nGo next page to continue\n\n3. Stroller\n\nMothers are guilty of this. They put their phones in a stroller along with the babies, this is wrong. You are exposing your little angel to electromagnetic waves.\n\nThe scary thing about this is that little babies from birth to three months of age have no immune system to protect their bodies apart from their skin.\n\nThey depend on the immune system of their mothers through breast milk. Scientists have made us know that this is not safe for babies.\n\nExposing little babies to radiation from cellphones can cause behavioral problems when they are growing up. An example of this is hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder.\nGo next page to continue\n \n4. Under your pillow\n\nMany feel that for the sake of conveniences, their phones should be under their pillow. I make this mistake in the past, I set alarm on my phone and use that excuse to put it under my pillow or close to my head.\n\nWhen I go to know of the dangerous impact this has on my health, I had to stop it. You are exposing your brain to electromagnetic radiations by doing this.\n\nOvertime, you will have frequent headaches and dizziness. Also, this can affect your sleep and cause insomnia overtime. While you are sleeping, notifications can come in.\n\nThese sounds and light will definitely affect your sleep. The light produced by the phone will affect the functions and production of melatonin, the sleep hormone.\n\nThis will lead to sleep problems like insomnia and this will start deteriorating your body. Insomnia has been linked with many chronic diseases because it robs the body of the time it uses to heal and repair itself.\n\nAlso, there have been cases of phone explosion and fires due to overnight charging. When a phone is charging, it gives off heat. This heat released will not be able to escape from under the pillow.\n\nThis will make the phone so hot and explode. This can harm you physically.\n\nYour health comes first before anything. If you are not healthy, you can\u2019t run around your business and one of the ways to protect your health is to handle your phone wisely.\nGo next page to continue\n\n5. Your bra\n\nI remember in my secondary school, phones were prohibited yet many girls including me sneaked them in. And guess the perfect place we always hid them to prevent being caught? You are right! Our bras.\n\nUnknown to us, we were exposing the delicate tissues of our breasts to harmful radiation and this was increasing our risks of breast cancer.\n\nPutting a phone in your bra increases your risks of breast cancer. It also increases your risks of skin problems. Remember that the surface of your phone is loaded with germs and bacteria of different types.\n\nBringing your phone close to your skin will make it easy for the bacteria to invade your body and cause problems. This can lead to skin problems like allergies, reactions, rashes, inflammation, and many more.\nGo next page to continue\n\n6. Anywhere in the bathroom or toilet\n\nRight now, cellphones are arguably the new newspapers and going to the toilet or bathroom without one seems like a trip to a prison.\n\nHowever, this is not a healthy act and most health professionals discourage this habit. Taking your phone to the toilet or bathroom will expose it to more bacteria and it will settle on the surface of the phone.\n\nEven if you keep it away from the toilet or on a counter, there are still germs in the air and they can come in contact with your phone.\n\nWhen you use the phone on your skin, you introduce these germs on your body and there can find a way into your body through your skin pores especially if you have an uncovered injury.\nGo next page to continue\n\n\n \n7. On your hip\n\nCarrying your phone in a way that it has close contact with your thighs is not good. Scientists have discovered that the radiation affects your bones by making it weak.\n\nThis increases your risks for weak and brittle bones and this will definitely lead to a condition called Osteoporosis. Take care of your bones by eating healthy foods and by putting your phone in a bag that is dense.\nGo next page to continue\n\n8. Against your skin\n\nI have written an article on Phone-induced acne. The surface of your phone is a home to a lot of harmful bacteria.\n\nWhen you place it against your skin, these bacteria come in contact with your skin and cause skin problems like acne.\n\nAnother reason why your phone should not come close to your skin is that it brings the electromagnetic radiation closer.\n\nThis doesn\u2019t mean you can\u2019t talk on phone, there is a way to go about this. There should be at least 1.5 cm space between you and the phone.\n\nYou can also put it on speaker and if you bothered about your privacy, you can use an earpiece or a headphone. And if you must use your phone against your skin, then imbibe the habit of cleaning your phone regularly with antibacterial wipes or cotton wool soaked in an antiseptic liquid.\nGo next page to continue\n\n9. Charging your phone all through the night on your bed\n\nCharging your phone all through the night on your bed while you are sleeping does not only affect the efficiency of your battery and reduce your phone\u2019s lifespan.\n\nThe radiation the phone releases all through the night when it\u2019s charging can affect you. If you don\u2019t care about your phone\u2019s lifespan and you have money for a new one, at least consider your health.\n\nYou can\u2019t get a new body. So, put your phone on the floor, away from you at night when it\u2019s charging.\n\nNow that you\u2019ve known where your phone should not be, these tips above will help you know how to handle your phone in a safe way.
