cell phone use increases body fat & blood sugar

If you’re doing everything you’re supposed to do, such as exercising and eating healthy food, but can’t get your blood sugar stabilized, and/or can’t lose weight, you might be right: it’s not your fault. That’s not to say there’s nothing you can do about it though. Just like parabens in lotions and cosmetics can mess with metabolism, that blue light from iPhones and computers can increase “…insulin resistance-your body’s inability to absorb glucose effectively-and may alter metabolism.”

Keep your computer and cell phone use to a minimum; you might lose weight and have better control over your blood sugar. Cutting back on time at the computer and on the cell phone may relieve neck and back pain, and eye strain too.
