Technology has change the world we live in, there is a lot of changes going on here there due to this changes. Who does not want smartphone especially the sophisticated ones, we all love it both the old and the young even babies love it too. The truth is that this phones that we all love come with effect that are unbelievable to us all.
What Are The Effects?
- Health Hazard:
In the recent years, there has been a lot of speculation about the impact of cell phone radiation on our body. A study by The Journal of the American Medical Association stirred the debate when it investigated the repercussion the mobile phones could have on the brain activity. The possible health hazards of mobile phones for children are as follows:
a. Non-Malignant Tumors:
The study has shown that children who use mobile phones have a possibility of developing non-malignant tumor in the brain and ear.
The WHO has classified cell phone radiation as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans’. Children absorb more than 60 percent of the radiation into the brain than adults. Their brain’s thinner skin, tissues, and bones allow them to absorb the radiation twice than the grown-ups. Their developing nervous system makes them more vulnerable to this ‘carcinogen’
c.Effects On The Brain:
Scientists have discovered that just 2 minutes of the phone call can alter the electoral activity of the kid’s brain for up to an hour. The radio waves from the mobile penetrate deep into the brain, not just around the ear. The disturbed brain activity could impair children’s learning ability and other behavioral problems. It could even affect their mood and ability to learn in the classroom if they have used the phone during the break time.
2. Retarding Speech Development :
New research has suggested that as children under the age of two spend more time using handheld smartphones, tablets or other electronic devices, their risk of having problems with their speech increases.
There are so many harmful effects but I focus only on the unbelievable ones. Parent if you love your child do not give them phone unless you are sure that your child is discipline.
