Smartphones Can Make You Sick

How many times have we heard or reports pointing to the fact that mobile phones can cause a lot of health risks for users? Our smartphones are the devices which we carry almost everywhere with us. We take it with us to our beds, bathrooms, kitchens, public places; in short our smartphones never leave our sides.

Many tests have proven that the smartphones carry are the direst devices and are infested with germs as we never wash our phone! In fact cell phones are dirtier than the toilet seat and they can cause common illness like flu, diarrhea and even eye infections.

Smartphones aren’t alone, the germs found on them are also found on keyboards, pens, door knobs, landlines etc. if this doesn’t disgust you enough, and smartphones also carry bacteria which indicate fecal contamination. Of the eight phones tested by HML Labs of Muncie, there were between about 2,700 and 4,200 units of coli form bacteria.

"We're feeding the little creatures," the Daily Mail quoted Michael Schmidt from Medical University of South Carolina as telling WSJ. "We've all seen that greasy smear on the touch screen. Where there is grease, there are bugs," he said.

So the next-time you use your smartphone remember to wash your hands thoroughly.
