The modern world of virtual social networking and relationship through e-mail could be bad for your health. And more face to face communication could be the antidote – according to Dr Aric Sigman writing in Biologist, the journal of the Institute of Biology.
According to Dr Sigman we have NEVER spent less time in face to face commuication with other people, and this has a number of profound and dmaging consequences for our health.
Evidence suggests that a lack of face-to-face communication could alter the way genes work, upset immune responses, hormone levels, the function of arteries, and influence mental performance.
This could increase the risk of health problems as serious as cancer, strokes, heart disease, and dementia.
