Researchers have found that students who use their smart phones five or more hours a day are prone to higher risk of obesity and likely to have other lifestyle habits that increase the risk of heart disease. According to a study, researchers analyzed 1,060 students (700 girls and 360 boys) of colombia with an average age of 19 years and 20 years, respectively. The study found that the risk of obesity increases by 43 per cent if a smart phone was used for five or more hours a day, as participating students were twice as likely to drink more sugary drinks, fast food, sweets, snacks and have decreased physical activities.

According to researchers, 26 per cent of the students who were overweight and 4.6 per cent who were obese spent more than five hours using their device. Spending too much time using the smart phone facilitates sedentary behaviors, reduces the time of physical activity, which increases the risk of premature death, diabetes, heart disease and different types of cancer.

 


The best way out is to encourage yourself to reduce the duration of time being used on phones and other related gadgets at the same time, to indulge in physical activities like yoga or any other sports or exercise pattern, and by not becoming a couch potato
