Aug 03, 2017: Owning a smartphone is one of the essential things for the youths today, not knowing the fact that extreme usage of the mobile phone can cause an irreversible damage to the mental and physical health. Youngsters have involved smartphones in their routine to an extent that they work, play, eat and sleep according to their mobile phones.

Albert Einstein aptly said, “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.”

There are plethora of negative impacts of cell phones on teenagers and mentioned below are the three effects of smartphones :

1. Possessing a smart phone will prompt your teen to spend all day hanging upon the device, instead of doing anything productive. Teens who spend much of their time with cell phones are more predisposed to stress and fatigue. It can also lead to psychological disorders in some cases.

2. Many teenagers keep their cell phones nearby while sleeping to respond to texts and calls, which leads to sleep disruption and interruption. Improper sleep in return makes the person irritable and weak.

3. Electromagnetic radiation emitted by mobile phones get absorbed in the tissues when we hold the phone for prolonged period of time. The nervous systems of your teens are still developing and thus longer usage of phones may trigger a greater risk of developing brain cancer from cell phones than adults.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

The winter comes with its own set of hassles. New moms have to be careful because they have to take care of themselves and their babies. It becomes imperative to protect babies from the harsh season. The immune system of newborn babies is developing, which makes them susceptible to respiratory infections. But, you can take preventive measures to keep your child warm and safe. Newborn babies need extra care until their immune system becomes stronger to protect their bodies from the harmful effects of viruses and bacteria that usually become more active in the winter season. A drop in the temperature can aggravate different processes in the body, therefore, moms need to take extra care of newborn babies during winters.
