Director of the Institute of Information Technologies of the University of Synergy Stanislav Kosarev, in an interview with the Prime agency, spoke about the dangerous consequences of sleeping with a phone under the pillow.
According to him, if you put the phone nearby for several hours a day, then electromagnetic waves will negatively affect the work of the brain in the long term.
The expert advised to stop using the gadget at least an hour before bed, as this negatively affects the quality of sleep. In addition, not switching the phone to silent or airplane mode will negatively affect the nervous system.
As the neurologist of the pain treatment clinic of the V.V. Vinogradova Petr Sokov, this is due to the fact that notification messages can be distracting, lengthen the transition to deep sleep, and worsen the quality of sleep. He added that to analyze and monitor sleep, it is better to use a fitness bracelet or electronic watch with notifications turned off at night.
Earlier, neurosurgeon Marat Yakupov gave advice on how to protect yourself from the “harmful radiation” of a smartphone. According to him, the degree of harm is determined by how often a person uses the device and how close it is to it during the day. He advised not to use the device too often and not to put it next to you, and during the day not to carry the device in your pockets. At night, the specialist advised to turn off the gadget. In addition, it is better to bring the device to the head only after the called party answers, since the calling mode is the strongest period of harmful radiation.
