Today it is difficult to find a person without a phone. And the number of cell phone users worldwide is rising! We are attached to them and keep them in our hands. We take them with us everywhere, even in the shower and in bed. However, keeping your phone in some places can be dangerous for the device and for your health.
WeGoRo created a list of 10 places where you shouldn’t store your cell phone. Read to the end of the article to find out why you’d better not charge your phone near a bed.
It’s certainly very comfortable to carry your phone in the back pocket of your pants. But by choosing this place, we can face the following problems:
Men don’t carry bags, so it’s more convenient for them to put their phone in a front pocket. But men’s health can suffer because of that. Studies have proved that the electromagnetic radiation of a phone adversely affects the quality and quantity of sperm. The longer a man keeps a phone in his pants, the higher the risk.
In medicine, there is still no consensus about whether cell phone radiation causes cancer. But according to some scientists, a phone in the bra increases the risk of breast cancer. So it’s better not to keep it there.
According to research, carrying your phone near your thigh weakens the hip bones. So take care of your bones, and put the device in a dense bag.
Don’t keep your cell phone against your skin. When you do this, bacteria from the screen and the phone buttons are transferred to the skin of your face, and the electromagnetic radiation becomes even closer.

When you bring your device back into a warm place, condensation forms, and this can lead to problems with the internal details of the phone. If you often go outside in the cold season, buy a “warm” phone case.
High temperatures are also harmful to electronics. In hot weather, it is not recommended that you leave your phone in the car or on the beach. Also, it is better not to keep it next to the oven.
Moms in a hurry often put their phone in a stroller. Some researchers argue that this is unsafe. The impact of cell phones on children can be the cause of such behavioral problems as hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder.
