Never Put Your Phone In These Places

Nowadays, it seems that practically nobody goes out without a cellphone with them. However, research shows that there are a lot of places where you shouldn’t keep your phone for extended periods of time, since it may actually end up damaging your health or your phone.

Here are 8 places to avoid putting your phone:

1. Your Back Pocket

There are a number of reasons why keeping your phone in your back pocket is a terrible idea. First of all, it’s very easy to forget about your phone when it’s in your back pocket, which could cause you to break it, lose it, or even dial somebody by accident. It could also disrupt your circulation, resulting in you feeling pain in your legs or stomach.

2. Your Front Pocket

This one can be pretty dangerous for men in particular. This is because studies have shown that a smartphone’s electromagnetic radiation emissions can have a negative impact on the quality and quantity of a man’s sperm cells. This risk increases the longer a man keeps his phone in his pants.

3. Your Bra

While not all scientists are in full agreement about this one, some of them warn that placing a cell phone inside your bra may increase your risk of getting breast cancer.

4. Against Your Skin

When talking on your cell phone, try to keep your device at least 0.5 to 1.5cm away from your face. This is because by touching your face with your phone, you’ll be transferring loads of nasty bacteria, as well as increasing the amount of electromagnetic radiation your skin absorbs.

5. Under Your Pillow
