Teens who log in (internet access) at least five hours a day have a 1 to 1.5 times greater risk for depression than teens who use the Internet in moderation. Similarly, based on studies in China that was launched from the NY Daily Legal News, Wednesday (04/08/2010).
Young people who spend too much time to surf the web grow restless when not in front of the screen and the declining interest in social interaction, according to co-author Lawrence Lam studies from the School of Medicine, University of Notre Dame, Sydney.
"Some (teens) spent more than 10 hours a day, they are really heavy users who show symptoms and signs of addictive behavior ... browse the internet, struggling with the games," said Lam.
"They can not stop thinking about the Internet, they feel uneasy if not returned after a break from the internet," he added.
Lam further said the teenager heavy internet users also do not want to spend time with family, do not want to hang out with friends, and not interested to attend family events.
The study involved 1041 adolescents aged 13-18 in Guangzhou, China which did not experience depression at the beginning of the study. When assessed nine months later, 84 adolescents diagnosed with depression. They are excessive Internet usage. The researchers concluded that teens who are most vulnerable to depression are excessive Internet users. The study itself has been published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.
"The (study) suggests that young people initially free of mental health problems but using the Internet excessively, develop depression as a consequence," Lam wrote.
Why surf the internet causing grief? Could be due to lack of activity turned a blind eye (sleep).
"People who spend so much time on the internet will lose sleep and this is a very proven fact that the more one's lack of sleep, the higher the chances are depressed," said Lam.
