Hey it’s Scott Alan,
While smart phones let us do amazing things, are they really helping us?
According to a new study, they make us walk more slowly with exaggerated steps, to avoid obstacles made harder to see by staring at the screen (like oncoming cars?). Researchers say that this change could cause back and neck problems in the long term. They also found that people writing text messages walk much more slowly than those without a phone.
Not sure they needed a study for this…
