Using mobile phones have become the latest trend these days and unfortunately, the younger members of almost every family use mobile phones and tablets the most. Even the parent is found to keep their kids busy with mobile phones so that they do not disturb others. Is it good for the kids to use mobile phones so extensively? Let us talk about a few health hazards of using mobile phones excessively:
The WHO has precisely mentioned that the radiation from the cell phones is perhaps carcinogenic to humans. Regrettably, the kids absorb more radiation in their brain than the adults. As a result, it hampers their nervous system and proper brain development.
The radiation from mobile phones affects the basic health of any children. Excessive mobile usage affects the learning ability and develops behavioural problems among the kids.
As the mobile waves penetrate the ear, at times the excess use of earphones or headphones can impede the hearing ability of the kids.
Most of the kids spend the maximum time of the day with their mobile phones. They play games, access social networking sites. This drives them away from physical activities resulting in obesity and other related physical problems.
Just because of these mobile phones, the kids are getting very less time for their studies too. Parent is at times scared of kids visiting adult sites too. It is surveyed that many children indulge in cheating and malpractices during the examinations.
