C II. Balancing the Time - 3 Reasons NOT to Sleep with Your Cellphone

Recent sleep studies have reported that due to our "darkness deprived" and technology rich society,  natural physiological processes such as increased melatonin production, to produce drowsiness and relaxation have been disrupted.  Exposure to the "blue light" emitted by personal devices not only decreases the production of melatonin, but also increases the production of hormones such as cortisol and ghrelin that wake us up and increase hunger. Teens are especially sensitive to blue light emission; 1 hour of interacting with a hand held device such as a phone will decrease melatonin production by 23%/ 2 hours will produce a 38% reduction.  This translates to a period of at least 2 hours after exposure to blue light when rest and relaxation are often impossible.
