Nowadays everybody enjoy taking selfie to capture their memorable moment, its now become a fashion. Scientists say that the ray generated from the front camera of a mobile disturb our skin and it may cause many skin diseases which are not recoverable. Taking photo from camera or mobile camera is not bad but taking selfie is harmful for skin.

This is complete rubbish. There is no more danger in pointing the camera at yourself than there is in pointing it at other people. In any case a camera receives light (radiation), it doesn't give it out! The only things on a cell-phone which emit light are the screen and the flash and the flash doesn't emit enough light to harm you at arm's length, even if you look straight at it. This is one of those stupid scare-mongering stories which mischeivous and wicked people delight in posting, either to see how far a stupid rumour can spread or to gain 'likes' for their FB page!

I got this news from one local channel, I also like to take selfie and still I take selfie but I keep maintaining distance from the front camera. Here the point is if you take selfie from a narrow distance, the light emits from the front camera may harm your skin.

When I first listen this, it was bogus to me also but later I realized that the radiation comes from the front camera may harm our skin.
