If you thought the studies on television watching that said time in front of the screen was harmful, the studies about teens and gaming are even more alarming. Actually they are depressing.
Two studies recently published with samples of 3,000 and 1,000 teens both found that teens gaming and using the Internet heavily are much more likely to become depressed.
"Those who used the Internet excessively were more than twice as likely as the others to be depressed nine months later."
So, with that, off I go.
