Here’s something to think about for you guys who can’t live without technology in hand. Studies have found that mobile use appears to play a role in both erectile dysfunction and poor sleeping patterns. Neither is a topic that easy to talk about, but the facts are important, and will help you suffer less, recover faster.
Some new studies have found that men who spend too much time with their phone deal with these unpleasant problems in the bedroom. In one project that was published by the Environmental Health Trust, men who carried powered on mobile phones for more than four hours a day had a higher risk of erectile dysfunction, perhaps the result of the heat or radiation emitted by the device. It’s the length of time carried that matters, and is especially worrisome when you think about where you keep your phone… if your phone is between your desk and your private parts for hours at a time you might want to rethink that.
Erectile dysfunction, ED, is the name given to the condition when a man can no longer get (or keep) an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Having trouble in this area once in a while is not unusual… fatigue or too much alcohol can do that. When ED is an ongoing problem, it can bring terrible stress for a man, be the source of relationship problems and certainly impact his feelings of self-confidence. ED can be the result of poor blood flow to the penis due to narrowing blood vessels. It can also be caused by medications or a chronic illness such as heart disease or poorly controlled diabetes.

Serious Downside To Tech Use Continued…
When it comes to poor sleep, technology is being found to play a pretty significant part.
A recent UK YouGov poll uncovered that 28 million adults (nearly 6 in 10) get under seven hours of sleep a night, 78% of the people told researchers they used electronic gadgets (phones and laptops or tablets) before bedtime.
The blue light that comes from these devices suppresses the production of melatonin, the body’s natural sleep-inducing hormone according to respected expert on sleep, psychologist Richard Wiseman.
It’s harder than ever to unwind before going to bed. Our culture over stimulates us so that by the time we get to bed… we’re even more tired than ever. But the bedroom is no longer treated as a sleep only place, there’s a TV in the bedroom. More than half of those examined in research admitted to having a television in the bedroom. Another 29% said they had a laptop or mobile phone there. Worse yet, more than one in ten said that the bed has turned into an extension of their workspace. This is a growing cause of concern for many… lack of sleep due to technology, overstimulation is not a good thing for people.
No one is suggesting you destroy your devices… but it’s likely there are limits you’ll want to set on how often you use them. Power down all devices about two hours before bedtime, keep limits on how often you check them during the day and practice leaving the devices at home once in a while. If the thought of turning your device off for a few hours at the movies makes you break into a cold sweat, it might be time to take steps to end your dependence on that device.
To your good health,
