Many of us spend a significant amount of time in the toilet these days, not because of poop delays, but because we are too preoccupied with our phones, games, or reading books.
Why is it bad for your health to sit on the toilet for too long?
Toilets have now become the sole location where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and sit on the throne and do anything you want- without being interrupted.
Medical professionals advise that no one should spend more than 10 minutes on the toilet. In fact, the lower the number, the better.
For starters, spending too much time in the bathroom with your phone exposes it to 18 times more germs. In fact, according to recent research, one out of every six phones has traces of faecal matter on its surface, which the owner is unaware of.
It may cause haemorrhoids.
Another reason to restrict your time on the toilet is because sitting for an extended period of time might cause haemorrhoids and bulging blood vessels around the anus. Yes, that does happen.
Do you have a problem with your bowel movements?
Even if the real reason for spending too much time is a difficult bowel movement, you must limit the amount of time you spend pressing the veins in the rectum.
