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, fingers & shoulders 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 bending of the neck increases the weight on the neck by 12.25 kg.
At 60degrees 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 also 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.
We control the cell phones & Cell Phones don’t Control Us.
