9 Life Threatening Things You Do Every Day by 24hoursreporter: 2:05pm On Nov 08
The world is a complex place and the need to stay safe in this complex place can never be overstressed. There are little things you do every day that are dangerous beyond your imagination. Sadly, most people don’t even know this.

In this article, you will learn about the 9 life threatening things you do every day without knowing how dangerous they are.

9 Life Threatening Things You Do Every day

#1. Charging Your Phone Under The Pillow Overnight


Charging your phone under the pillow is one of the life threatening things people do every day. As a matter of fact, charging your phone under the pillow overnight is as risky as leaving your gas cooker on all through the night. When the charger gives up the heat, it usually has nowhere to go as there is no ventilation. This will automatically set the pillow on fire.

#2. Popping of wines

Popping of wines is also among the list of life threatening things you do every day. According to reports, flying wines corks are responsible for several potentially eye blind injuries like ocular bleeding, acute glaucoma and retinal detachment.

#3. Boredom

Boredom is a disease that kills faster than HIV. According to University of London college researchers, bored people are generally like to die young due to unhealthy life choices.

#4. Washing Your Hair In A Salon

Ladies, washing your hair in a salon is not too good. It can cause a crippling stroke. A crippling stroke happens when the neck’s artery gets torn due to head tilt backwards.

#5. Use Of Cotton Swab

The use of Cotton Swab (Popularly known as cotton bud) is also among the life threatening things you do every day. We have seen instances when children stick cotton swab in their ear and lead to serious medical issues.

Generally, the use of cotton swab is dangerous as it can affect hearing and balance. Sometimes, it can even damage the nerves in the face.

#6. The Use of Escalators

Using escalator is another dangerous thing people do every day. Several people get real injuries every year due to escalators. So, you can do yourself good and use the regular staircase.

#7. Using A fully Tiled Toilet Or Bathroom Without Slippers

Using the bathroom or toilet without slippers is very dangerous especially tiled ones. Therefore, ensure that you always use your slippers whenever you are entering a fully tiled toilet.

#8. Leaving The House Without Switching Off Electrical Appliances

About 65 percent of most domestic fires are caused by electrical appliances. So, it is advisable to always switch off all electrical appliances before leaving the house.

#9. Excessive Use Of Headphones

Where are the lovers of headphones? Do you know that your headphones may be killing you slowing? Listening to music with headphones will damage your hearing. Also, it can lead to hypertension, stroke and heart failure.

'Risk' is the word you needed and not 'life threatening'
A lot of thing you mentioned there are risky but not quite life threatening.
