“There is a strong link between heavy internet use and depression, UK psychologists have said.

The study, reported in the journal Psychopathology, found 1.2% of people surveyed were “internet addicts”, and many of these were depressed. The Leeds University team stressed they could not say one necessarily caused the other, and that most internet users did not suffer mental health problems.”

via BBC News – ‘Internet addiction’ linked to depression, says study.

Besonders schön:

“The conclusions were based on 1,319 responses to an on-line questionnaire.”

Mit solchen bahnbrechenden “Ergebnissen” verankert sich Leeds wohl auch wissenschaftlich auf Dauer in der dritten Liga…
