Further evidence of the negative effects of mobile screens on children’s health has emerged
Canada: The biggest challenge for parents around the world right now is to somehow make their children spend less time looking at tablets and smartphones. Now there is more evidence of the extremely negative effects of over-exposure to children in the screen.
Experts at the Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) have expressed concern that children who spend too much time looking at the screen may and do suffer from visual impairment, attention loss and obesity.
In this regard, ARU experts have reviewed or meta-reviewed research from around the world. According to him, it started in the Corona epidemic and now it is the case that children have crossed the limit of watching the screen for two hours daily. All over the world, children watch mobile phones for three or four hours a day.
The most frightening thing is that a mobile screen is strictly forbidden in front of a child up to two years old, but he is not far from this condition. According to a study in Tunisia, screen time in children between the ages of 5 and 12 has increased by 111%.
According to experts, phone and tablet are increasing the dryness of the eyes, redness and tension in them. But the most dangerous thing is that the mental state of showing a scene by combining the reflections of both eyes is affected.
Second, adolescents are using more than one device at a time. They also carry a phone or tablet while watching TV. This is increasing the pressure on vision. The second is that the activity is ending and the children are becoming obese and suffering from other diseases due to sitting in one place for a long time.
Scientists have asked parents and teachers to somehow reduce screen time in children and encourage them to engage in the same exercise and physical activity.
