“Wherever you are I’ll find you, wherever you will be, I’ll be with you “That’s quite romantic, isn’t it? Well, that somehow briefly summarizes the dramatic love story you share with your mobile phone. No need to deny it, you are not the only one.
We have all got used to the habit of carrying our mobile phones with us wherever we go and we would never ever leave the house without it. We also panic when it’s not within our reach and are constantly refreshing it to keep up to date with emails, texts, and calls.
The situation got even worse and we have become really addicted to it. We often store it in the pockets of our pants or shirts because it’s convenient and more accessible, but what we totally ignore that it causes negative side effects that can put our health at risk.

1. This why you need to stop storing your phone in your pocket
Why shouldn’t you put your phone in your pocket? The answer is simple. Storing your phone is bad for your phone and even worse for your health. One more thing worth mentioning is that your phone is far dirtier than what you used to think.
Therefore, the more germs it collects, the more germs you touch. There is actual scientific evidence behind these claims.
2. Your phone is putting your health at risk
Dr. Lily Friedman of Comprehensive Wellness Institute in South Florida said that cell phones are constantly releasing heat and radiation and that can be very dangerous, especially if you are that kind of person who always keeps the cell phone close.
And that’s because when you store your phone in the pockets of your pants or that of your t-shirt while it is on or connected to a wireless network, the radiation exceeds the federal guidelines for exposure and becomes 2 up to 7 times higher than if it was stored in a purse or a holster.
