For those of you that are bored of reading long articles, here is an extremely engaging video about how phones are negatively impacting us. There are more sides to the issue of digital technology than the negative ones but this video argues that instead of obliterating phones, we should begin taking “smartphone vacations”, a break from smartphones for an extended amount of time!
-Only 4.5 billion people have working toilets while over 6 billion people own a smartphone.
-Cell phones transmitting can change the way your brain functions can affect melatonin production, affecting sleep patterns and increasing chances of cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
-When you are looking down at your phone, the pressure exerted on your spine and neck is equivalent to if an 8-year-old was sitting on your neck. Not ideal!
