Uncontrolled screen time is hurting us.

Be it TV, computer, phone or tablet, these devices dominate our lives. I have been saying for years that these devices and the blue backgrounds they use are detrimental to sleep patterns and now a researcher from Boston has confirmed it. In what has been called the best study of it’s type so far the researchers found that by using an e-reader for only 5 days had melatonin levels drop by 55% and experienced difficulty falling asleep. In another study with teenagers, just 1 hour of mobile use reduced melatonin by 23% and for 2 hours was 38%  - very significant numbers. For those who find reading helps put them to sleep, the researchers also found higher rates of diabetes, weight gain and alzheimers. Something to think about....
