Answer on What is the effect of social networking sites to your health(emotional, physical, spiritual)?

"People's health could be harmed by social networking sites because they reduce levels of face-to-face contact, an expert claims.

A lack of "real" social networking, involving personal interaction, may have biological effects, he suggests.He also says that evidence suggests that a lack of face-to-face networking could alter the way genes work, upset immune responses, hormone levels, the function of arteries, and influence mental performance.This, he claims, could increase the risk of health problems as serious as cancer, strokes, heart disease, and dementia."

Hmmm... Scary huh... but may be true. :)
