Switch off mobiles at 10pm to prevent mood disorders’ – reports yesterdays edition of The Times.
The findings come from the largest study of its kind, involving more than 91,000 people across the UK.
The study, carried out by a research team at the University of Glasgow, found playing with your phone in bed can heighten your chances of developing a mental health disorder.
The researchers also found that:
– people who fail to follow their natural body clock rhythm are more likely to have depression and mental health problems.
– people work on a 24-hour sleep/wake cycle have a greater susceptibility to mood disorders.
– those who are inactive during the day and more active or restless at night have an increased risk of depression, bipolar disorder and low mood.
Professor Daniel Smith, professor of psychiatry at the university, said, ‘You can… turn off your mobile phone around 10pm because the light in it is telling your brain it’s daytime.’
He went on to comment, ‘this is an important study demonstrating a robust association between disrupted circadian rhythm and mood disorders’.
The health effects of not following a natural cycle have been known about for a long time. They have previously been associated with an increased risk of cancer, heart disease and obesity.
Light at night is considered so dangerous by the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) that it has classified light at night as a class 2A carcinogen.
But what’s interesting here is that:
– we have a major study linking cell phone use with mental health disorders
– it’s making front page news (printed edition) in The Times, no less.
For those of you that don’t know, The Times, published in London, is one of the oldest and most influential newspapers in the UK and considered by some as one of the world’s greatest newspapers (say’s he with a hint of pride!).
What’s a pity is that the article doesn’t mention the health impact of electromagnetic fields.
Because this is where the real danger lies.
EMF exposures at night are a big deal.
Studies show EMFs exposures can interrupt sleep cycles and they are linked to a host of ailments and symptoms like: irritation of allergies, tiredness upon awakening, heart palpitations, muscle pain and weakness, and daytime irritability as well as generally weakening your immune system.
When I was experiencing electrical hyper sensitivity symptoms a few years ago, I remember it feeling like someone had turned up the volume switch. As night descended and I’d be working on my computer (all wired as well) my hot head and prickly skin symptoms would take on a life of their own.
