What do you do when you’ve got a few minutes to spare on the train, stuck in a queue or relaxing after a long day?
More and more of us are reaching for our mobile phones and the games we have downloaded there. Millions of people use their phones for gaming and that number is rising all the time.
From Angry Birds to Candy Crush Saga to Clash of Clans there have been massive hit games that sparked trends and got people addicted to defending their village or beating just one more level. Some of us put our money where our digits are and pay out to skip sections or get perks.
We rely on our mobile phones to entertain us, not just act as communication devices. But is it all fun and games?
Mobile phones are sending and receiving information all the time – including when signing you into your games, checking your high score and saving your progress. These signals, carried on your network or wifi, are at electromagnetic frequencies that studies show can have all sorts of health risks.
Tucking your phone in your pocket so you can have another go at clearing a tricky level or check on your nuclear bunker while out getting lunch is a fun distraction. Mobile phone radiation and the effect it could be having on your health is anything but.
For men, keeping your phone in your front pocket puts it right next to your sperm. Mobile phone radiation can have a severe “game over” effect on sperm. You can dodge the effects with an anti-radiation case like WaveWall and play on, blocking 85% of your phone’s radiation without affecting performance.
Do you have any favourite games on your mobile phone?
