It is a touch screen. It is designed to do something when you touch it. Don't touch the screen unless you want it to do something.
You have only mentioned two apps that are specifically designed to do "something" when you touch the screen.
If you open Mail and hold your finger on the screen - it is going to:
a) open the keyboard if your finger is on the search box
b) open the email you have touched - aka jump to another screen - when you lift your finger from the screen
c) open the email box you have touched - aka known as jump to another screen
There is almost no place in the Mail app you can touch the screen and have it do "nothing".
I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
