Everyone has a smart phone practically attached to their bodies nowadays. The problem with this is that they are literally cooking your body, just like a tiny microwave oven. If you’re talking into it, it’s cooking your brain. If you’re carrying it in your front pants pocket, it’s cooking your ovaries or your testicles. If you’re carrying it on a belt clip holder, it could be cooking your kidneys, intestines, or liver. What about working on your laptop while it’s resting on your lap? If you’re doing any of these, YOU NEED antioxidants!
Only 15 minutes of carrying it on your body, or talking to someone on it, can create significant cellular damage. However, all is not lost! Antioxidant supplements can help minimize the effects of smart phone cell stress and damage. Antioxidants are molecules that help the body repair. For example, perhaps the most well-known of antioxidants is vitamin C. Vitamin C is great for helping to repair collagen tissue, the fiber that makes up our hair, skin, nails, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Research suggests that daily intake of antioxidants like vitamins C and E, carotenoids, and polyphenols are important in maintaining strong cellular resistance to damage caused by smart phone stress.
Since people are unlikely to stop living on their smart phones, it is imperative that they get enough antioxidants every day. Since research has shown the connections between smart phone use and brain tumors, dead sperm, and cellular degeneration, we have to take better care of ourselves. Smart phone stress is yet just another example of but one of the stresses we face in day to day life. The stress from smart phones isn’t just confined to smart phones. Similar types of radio waves are emitted from WiFi (which is in practically every business, coffee shop, and school today), all electronic devices, and your smart electric meter for your power company.
These are all sources of stress our parents and grandparents did not have to battle against. Yet they probably ate better than we do today, and were likely more active than we are today. So antioxidant intake today is essentially required. If you don’t, it may only be a matter of time before you start to experience stress related symptoms, like anxiety, insomnia, lack of focus, irritable, headaches, blurred vision, and poor memory. Sound familiar? What’s worse is that we are giving smart phones to our children! Who knows what kind of damage this is doing to their poor growing bodies, not to mention their neck posture and eye development.
