A recent scientific study found that the use of your phone while eating main meals leads to obesity and associated diseases. According to the newspaper “Daily Mail” British.
The researchers, who took part in the study, found that people who use their phones at the same time, consume 15 percent more calories than other people.
According to the study, staring at the smartphone screen would make a person not aware of the amount of food he normally ate.
The use of smart phones, while eating meals, leads to the consumption of more calories and fat, said Marcio Gelberto, lead author of the study conducted in coordination with the Federal University of Brazil and a medical center in the Netherlands.
“Tablet PCs and smart phones have become a major source of distraction during the meal,” he said, pointing out that even children are affected by the behavior.
