Do you use your cell phone as an alarm clock every night? Studies suggest that nearly half (48%) of all people age 16 to 34 use a cell phone alarm. 26% of people age 35 to 54 and around 9% of adults age 55 and up. And when your smartphone is always within arm’s reach, you’re more likely to give into digital temptation. Using electronics at night makes it much harder to fall asleep.
Keeping your phone so close to your side at all times, day or night, may also have very real dangers to your physical health, too.
Cell phones produce electromagnetic field frequencies or EMFs. Studies show that up to 80% of cell phone radiation may penetrate as far as two inches into your brain when you hold it up to your ear.
If you use a cell phone alarm clock, that means you will be exposed to cell phone radiation and EMF fields all night long. Check out this infographic to see how using your phone as an alarm clock can be dangerous to your health.
