Psychological and Physical Considerations

This article is from BBC News and is about the effects of internet addiction on the way the brain is connected.

It is very interesting as most of us use internet several hours per day. The article states that web addicts have brain changes similar to those hooked on drugs or alcohol. This is something very worrying because internet is freely used by people of every age, and one can be hooked to it very easily. Of course, prohibiting the internet or restricting it would not be a sane solution as it is one of the most important tools we have and has become part of our routines and lives. So one has to be more cautious and realize when he is becoming an addict.
