At first, there was nothing you could take with you. Then, it was books, newspapers, and comics.

But today, it’s probably the mobile phone most people take with them when they need something to pass the time while sitting on the toilet.

According to Pensionist, NordVPN conducted a survey of nearly 10,000 adults, and here, a full 65 percent responded that they use their mobile phones when they let nature take its course.

In fact, 26- to 41-year-olds are the most likely to use their mobile phones, with the youngest group (18–25 years) coming in second.

It was also confirmed that Spain is a country where people often use mobile phones. Around 80 percent of respondents said they use their mobile phones to occupy themselves.

But in these times when experts are talking about a possible addiction to our mobile phones, perhaps we should consider leaving the mobile phone in the living room when we go to the toilet.

That’s why it’s bad
It can be directly harmful for you to take your mobile phone to the toilet because we usually spend significantly more time in the bathroom when we have our mobile phone.

Gastroenterologist Roshini Raj of NYU Langone tells Media Launcher that you shouldn’t sit out there for more than a few minutes.
“You shouldn’t spend more than 10 minutes there,” Roshini says.

He goes on to explain that you run the risk of getting haemorrhoids and swollen veins if you sit on the toilet for too long – and that’s not something you want, as it can be extremely painful.

But it probably wouldn’t be so harmful for us to sit on the toilet for long periods of time if it wasn’t for the shape of the porcelain bowl.

When we sit on the toilet, the actual anorectal area hangs slightly lower than the supported part—your thighs, explains Roshini.

“Just because of that position, gravity causes everything to sag slightly, putting pressure on the veins.”

“So even if you’re not exerting yourself, just sitting there thinking about something or doing something else, there’s some pressure on your veins.”
