What Happens to Our Body When we Look at Our Cell Phone Before Going to Sleep?
Are you like me and have to take a last glimpse of your cell phone before going to sleep? Science explains to us what happens to our bodies when we do that.
A professor of psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine, Dan Siegel has conducted a study on using a cell phone before sleeping effects the body and the brain. He says that when people look at their cell phones, the light from the screen alerts the brain to stay awake.
Nighttime light exposure suppresses the production of melatonin, which is the major hormone that is secreted by the pineal gland and controls the sleep and wake cycles. So, a reduction in melatonin at night is associated with subjective levels of sleeplessness. Melatonin reduction has far worse consequences that just poor sleep; it has also been shown to increase the risk of cancer, impaired immune system function, and could possibly lead to cardiometabolic consequences.
