In the publication of the American Medical Association, a material appeared on the study of students in the upper grades. It turned out that there is a relationship between reading information from “digital platforms”, including social networks, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Two-year study affected 2587 adolescents. Scientists concluded that people who use more than one digital media are twice as likely to have attention deficit disorder. These include hyperactivity, impulsivity and complexity with concentration on a single task.
Also, experts note that smartphones and tablets only intensify the negative effect, because they are always at hand.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is usually seen from an early age. Some children, as they grow up, get rid of it or learn to control it. However, some experts believe that such a syndrome does not exist at all.
