Doctors warn: Using your cellphone while you are in the bathroom causes hemorrhoids
In the difficult times we are going through these days, we must do our part. Stay home and avoid gatherings to give doctors and nurses a few minutes of rest between their long shifts.
Fortunately technology is here for us, ready to entertain, inform and distract us in any way possible. With the current global pandemic situation, it is not a shame to be stuck with the phone most of the day.
It is very important to keep up to date with news, dangers, and discoveries.
But there are places where you need to be careful with the use of the phone, because of health hazards.
The fact is that taking the cell phone to the bathroom can cause hemorrhoids, according to a report by the Mirror.
Being stuck on the phone for too long is a bad thing for many reasons. But during a corona virus outbreak it is definitely forgiven. While it is wonderful to have family and friends to share the quarantine with, but if you are locked up alone at home the situation can get boring very quickly. Still, we are here to make sure you still take care of yourself during these difficult days.
Can cause hemorrhoids
According to a survey conducted in the UK, 57% of the population uses mobile phones in toilets.
Sitting on the toilet for too long can cause hemorrhoids. Using a cell phone prolongs the time of visiting the bathroom, which increases the risk of hemorrhoids.
"Constipation and effort to defecate significantly increases the risk of hemorrhoids - pregnancy, chronic cough and old age are also a factor. But also prolonged sitting on the toilet.
We used to take a good book to the bathroom - but these days the use of the cell phone is increasing", said Dr. Sarah Jarvis.
See a doctor immediately
If you suffer from hemorrhoids often, or they do not go away after a week, you should see a doctor.
The most common cause of hemorrhoids is still constipation, and to avoid it, you need to eat a lot of dietary fiber.
But leaving the phone in the living room while you do your business in the bathroom will definitely not kill you. On the contrary, it will only help you in the long run.
Do you know someone who is unable to disconnect from the phone for even a second? Not in the bathroom either?
If so, share this important information with them.
