Mobile Phone – A gadget that was supposed to be controlled by humans is ironically Controlling Humans.

I had planned a trip with my school friends. We planned everything that we would do on the trip. We would relax & talk about our school days & enjoy the weekend.

So, we booked a scenic & beautiful resort & reached the place. As soon as we got out of our cars, the first reaction of everyone was “ Oh, God! we don’t have mobile network connectivity here ”

This is not a new story, it might have happened to many of us.

Mobile Phones have affected our daily to such an extent that they cause many health-related problems.


Along with the eye strain, and finger & shoulder complaints, it is also the most important cause of neck problems.

The neck carries the weight of our Brain & Skull which is around 5kg.

Every 15-degree increase in the neck’s bending increases the neck’s weight by 12.25 kg.

At 60 degrees of the bent neck, we add a weight of 27.2 kg on the neck.

The increased weight causes:

▪ neck pain

▪ Neck muscle spasm.

▪ Early aging of neck bones and disc prolapse.

▪ Which will cause weakness, numbness and tingling sensation of the arms & fingers.


* Avoid longer usage of cell phones.

* Bring the screen to your eye level than the other way round.

Let’s pledge:

We control cell phones and cell Phones don’t Control Us.
