San Diego State University Has Found Shocking Evidence About Screen Addiction. According to a study from Dr. Jean M. Twenge, teens are 74 percent more likely to have trouble sleeping and twice as likely to see a professional for mental health issues than their 1980s counterparts.

Evidence

Brain-imaging research has shed light on the impact of screen time on our neural pathways, suggesting profound effects on the brain. Furthermore, numerous cases have been observed, especially among teenagers, who become so engrossed in their video games that they neglect basic needs, such as using the bathroom. The accumulating evidence points towards a compelling truth about the implications of excessive screen use. However, it seems society is hesitant, or perhaps unprepared, to fully confront and address these findings.

“We have, as a society, gone all-in on tech,” Dr. Twenge points out, “so we don’t want some buzz-killing truth-sayers telling us that the emperor has no clothes and that the devices that we’ve all so fallen in love with can be a problem.”

Social Media Addiction may not be an official term in the U.S., at least not yet. But researchers and clinicians like Bishop, who avoid using it, are still concerned about some of the patterns of behavior they see.
