Impacts of Backlit Devices on Teenagers
A new study shows that teenagers are more susceptible to impacts from use of backlit devices such as laptops and smartphones. The results of the study were published in the SAGE journal by the Lighting Research Center.
If you know any teenagers - you already know that they are addicted to their phones. Actually, I should clarify that teenagers are probably just more addicted to their smartphones than everyone else.
Before going onto the results of the Lighting Research Center it should be noted that smartphone usage among teenagers today is extraordinarily high. An alternate study conducted by Norwegian researchers on 10,000 adolescents between ages of 16 - 19 found that almost every single one of them used either a smartphone or laptop in the last hour before bed. (The duration of usage was not recorded).
