People with a phone spend much more time on the toilet than without it, and this can lead to a number of problems, Metro reported referring to doctors.

“Doctors are now warning that this practise can give you piles, lumps inside and around your bottom. Speaking to The Sun Online, Dr Sarah Jarvis, GP and Clinical Director of, explained that it is the length of time your phone leads you to spend on the loo that raises the risk of developing haemorrhoids. The more you use your phone on the toilet, the longer you will be sat there, meaning that pressure increases on the veins of the anus in the lower rectum,” the source noted.
