Killing Yourself Digitally

leave a comment »

Facebooking and Twittering are sucking the life out of you, and not in an Edward Cullen kinda way. As social networking sites tend to diminish meaningful face-to-face contact, the increased isolation could alter the way genes work, disrupt immune systems, cell proliferation and hormone levels and impair mental performance, according to findings by psychologist Dr. Aric Sigman of the Institute of Biology in England. This increases the likelihood of problems like cancer, stroke, heart disease and dementia. The next time you comment on someone’s Facebook status, suggest meeting up for a cuppa instead.

Get a grip or you could end up sick!

I wonder why I’m sick so often even though I’m not crazy over Facebook or Twitter.
