10. Falling asleep with your phone next to your head is unhealthy.
We all have been guilty of falling asleep with our phone next to our head, at least once or twice. Whether listening to your favorite podcast or scrolling through social media, you should make sure to get your phone as far away from your head as possible while you sleep. Cell phones release radio-frequency energy, which has been linked to brain cancer.
Although cell phones are categorized under non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation and cannot damage DNA or cells directly, research suggests that it could increase the risk of cancer by reducing melatonin levels in the body. Melatonin has been shown to suppress the development of certain tumors. To minimize your risk, be sure to put your phone as far away from your head while you get your rest. Not to mention that scrolling on your phone before bed has made it more difficult to fall asleep.
