Gadgets like mobile phones, tablets, computers, earphones and smart watches have become an integral part of our lives. Not only are they necessary for handling everyday tasks, but they have also become a part of our style. We keep mobile phones with us everywhere, be it the dining table or the bed. Many people even take their phones and tablets with them to the bathroom.

Many such bacteria have been found on these gadgets, which cause diseases. Due to the mechanism of the phone, heat is always emitted, so these gadgets are the favorite place of bacteria.

Experts said that bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa grow on the screen. These can cause diarrhea, food poisoning, respiratory diseases and skin infections. People wear smartwatches to track their fitness, but many bacteria (such as Staphylococcus, Pseudomonas, Escherichia, E-coli are found on its band and screen) which cause skin infections, toxic shock syndrome, blood, pneumonia in the lungs or infection in other parts of the body and diarrhea.

Threat to people with weak immunity

Health experts said, these bacteria cause the most harm to people with weak immune systems. Using earphones or earpods for several hours continuously increases the temperature and humidity of the ear, which can also cause ear infection.

In most cases, Staphylococcus aureus bacteria is found on the surface of the smartphone. It is commonly known as staph. This can cause skin infection. Not only this, when you come in contact with this bacteria, it can also cause food poisoning. Therefore, if you use the gadget while eating, turn it off immediately. This bacteria can easily reach your hands, then face and mouth from the gadget.

Risk of stomach, skin and UTI

Escherichia coli or E-coli are also bacteria that cause serious infections. Some of its variants can cause severe diarrhea, urinary tract infection and kidney disease.

Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria can cause many types of infections ranging from throat to skin infection. It can survive for a long time on many surfaces including mobile phones, which increases the risk of its spread. Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria can also cause respiratory infections, urinary tract infections and blood infections.

According to a research, 11,163 micro-organisms were found on 26 mobile phones, which cause dangerous diseases. Therefore, clean the screen and back cover of your gadget regularly with a microfiber cloth or alcohol wipes. Avoid using the phone in the bathroom or other dirty environment. Wash hands regularly with soap and water or use sanitizer.

Avoid touching face, nose, eyes or mouth after using mobile. Avoid sharing your phone with anyone. If you sweat a lot, clean the gadget daily. Do not use earphones continuously for more than an hour.
