It may be hard to stop, but looking at your phone at night is a terrible idea. Smartphone screens emit bright blue light, so they can see even in the sunniest hours of the day.
But at night, their brains are confused by that light, because it imitates the brightness of the sun. This causes the brain to stop the production of melatonin, a hormone that your body gives “bedtime” signals.
This allows the smartphone to slightly disrupt its sleep cycle, making it difficult to fall asleep and stay – and that can lead to serious health problems in the future.
As an effect of exposure to blue light in the brain and body:
• Interrupting your sleep schedule can make you distract and hurt your memory the next day
• There is some evidence that blue light our vision could damage by damaging the retina over time – although more research is needed
• A lack of sleep caused by the smart phone light can make it more difficult to LEARN
• Researchers investigate whether blue light can cause cataracts
• In the long run, you can not get enough sleep to neurotoxin build up that makes it even harder for you to get a good night’s sleep
• People who are suppressed melatonin levels and the biological clock thrown out by exposure to light are more prone to depression
• By disrupting melatonin and sleep problems, smart phone light can also mess with hormones that starve, which could increase the risk of obesity control
• There is a relationship between exposure to light at night and sleep disorders that come with it and an increased risk of breast and prostate cancer.
