On account of World Hypertension Day, a rearch has been published in European Heart Journal suggests that talking on call for more than 30 minutes can increase the risk of hypertension.
As reported by Hindustan Times, the new study has found that chances of hypertension get increased by 12 percent if a person talks on call for more than half-an-hour.
The study also explained holding phone for a longer period causes strain on neck, shoulders or back which can eventually result into high blood pressure.
Dr Keshava R, who is a senior director at interventional cardiology, Fortis Hospital, Cunningham Road Bengaluru said, "In today's fast-paced world, cellphones have become an integral part of our daily lives. However, our excessive use of cellphones may be contributing to the rise of a silent killer: high blood pressure. It may seem harmless to spend hours scrolling through social media, but the sedentary lifestyle it promotes can have detrimental effect on our health.”
He further noted, “additionally, the blue light emitted by our cellphones can interfere with our natural sleep patterns, leading to poor sleep quality and elevated blood pressure levels. Moreover, stress and anxiety caused by excessive cellphone use can also contribute to hypertension.”
The Dr further added, “Poor eating habits and lack of physical activity associated with cellphone addiction can further contribute to high blood pressure, the time spent on mobile phones could be better utilized for exercising, meeting people in person, and engaging in outdoor activities, which undoubtedly have more health benefits.”
“So, while we enjoy the convenience and entertainment offered by our cellphones, let us not forget the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, both for ourselves and for those around us,” he said.
