You may have seen some headlines recently about texting being a possible health hazard, but why is this?

It’s all to do with one of the Golden Rules of Health – Keep Good Posture.

Texting, like reading books, sitting at computers, driving etc, encourages poor posture, and as you can tell we already have enough things causing us to slouch.

And poor posture compresses the lungs, heart, stomach and puts damaging pressure on the spinal cord.  It is all of these that combine to cause an early death.

I expand upon this in my video inspired by a chapter in Brett Hill’s book, ‘How to Eat an Elephant’, and if you really want to know more, then download my Posture Report – Click Here
