The smartphone screen emits a bright blue light, which helps us to see the phone screen clearly in the dark light of day. This blue light is not included in visible light spectrum, ie its electrically ultraviolet light visibility, rather it is visible. As a result, using the phone at night, our brain gets riddled due to this blue light and takes it as light of day. Because our brain is programmed in a way that is light in the day and it is awake; On the other hand, the night is dark and it’s time to sleep. Different body systems are regulated according to these rules. So during the night of smartphone use, our brain stopped making melatonin by the effects of blue light. Melatonin is basically a hormone, which tells the body to sleep in the night and get to sleep. This is prevented by sleep due to the lack of melatonin and normal sleep disorder. Over time, it can have more negative effects on the body.
