Research Says Checking Your Phone While On A “Break” = Less “Recharging” of Brain

Research Also Says Cell Phone Radiation Disrupts Blood-Brain Barrier and May Cause It To Leak

Since the Journal of Behavioral Addictions released this research there must be something to it.  From Nextgov:

Using your phone on break during mentally challenging tasks doesn’t allow your brain to recharge effectively and may result in poorer performance, according to new research.

[…]

“The act of reaching for your phone between tasks, or mid-task, is becoming more commonplace. It is important to know the costs associated with reaching for this device during every spare minute. We assume it’s no different from any other break—but the phone may carry increasing levels of distraction that make it difficult to return focused attention to work tasks,” says coauthor Terri Kurtzberg, an associate professor of management and global business at the Rutgers University Business School.

Considering all the research and news reports on “Screentime” being addictive and  behaviorally, emotionally and physically harmful, even horn growth inducing – and kids being especially affected by all of this – these new findings can’t be all that surprising, can they?  Heck – even the U.S. government offered up some pretty scary research confirming that “Screentime” is harming kids’ brains.

Unfortunately, research has also determined that exposure to cell phone radiation is harmful to the brain and all other body parts.  It can even disrupt the blood-brain barrier which can cause it to leak AND kill brain cells.  The American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts warn that children are more susceptible to harm from exposure.  Recently, the Chicago Tribune reported that many smartphones also exceed government radiation safety limits.  It’s probably safe to say that could cause even more blood-brain barrier disruption, etc.

Seems like there are plenty of good reasons to take breaks from smartphones whether you’re formally “on a break” or not.
