Beware: Fifteen harmful effects on your brain due to cellphone addiction

Once upon a time, there lived a people on our earth whose life revolved around TWO telephones: One at home and the other in the office. They lived happily in between the times when they were away from home or office. But then someone invented the digital technology and from then thereafter, lives of people start to change. First came the beepers and then the cellphones. 

 Now, our lives revolves around just one cellphone for everything: From making calls to texting, sharing photos, calculating house budget, finding directions and God knows what from thousands of lucrative apps. And this has made our lives if not easier, but difficult and perhaps a bit miserable too.

I was just reading an article and was appalled to read FIFTEEN reasons how cellphones affect the brains of people who are addicted to using cellphones. Read herein under:

1. Phone addicts run a higher risk for developing depression

2. Those with a phone addiction are more likely to suffer from some type of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
