Internet addiction - the repurcussionsA latest study has indicated that more of Internet addiction can lead to lower immunity. We have seen the younger generation has been too much inclined towards this sort of addiction. Is it not the need of the hour to curb this over use of technology?
Another study has indicated that the Problematic Internet Use - or PIU as it is called can cause conflicts within the family. The PIU has been associated with symptoms like sleep disorders, depression etc. The abuse Internet, or as we can say addiction to it leads to health related - both mental and physical - consequences like lack of attention, hostility, social phobia and hyperactivity.
Interestingly enough, the study does not blame youngsters alone. It puts both the parents ( who are equally addicted to the net) and the students in the same plane to analyse the repercussions.
Techians, share your views so that we can have a healthy discussion over this evil necessity.
