You might heard different facts about the negative effect of cell phones on your health. Well, the majority of them is probably true. But did you know that putting away your phone is good for your bones? It might seem silly, but it’s true – cell phone radiation can affect the strength of your bones.
One study looked at bone mineral density (BMD) and bone mineral content (BMC) in the hipbones of healthy male adults. Half of the participants were mobile nonuser, while other half was wearing their phone close to their hip daily for almost a year. Results showed that BMD and BMC of males who regularly carried their phones were significantly lower in their hips compared to nonusers. This loss of bone strength might be the effect of cell phone radiation, scientists conclude.
In conclusion, putting away your phone is a good idea. Will you remember to do it?
