The rise and rise of the digital age

0

Digital screen-based activities affect every aspect of our lives, with half of all households around the world having a personal computer and up to 35% of people owning a smartphone. It has become obvious that many people, especially children and teenagers, spend increasingly long hours in front of screens, often at the expense of other activities including face-to-face social interaction and educational responsibilities. As more people adopt a digital lifestyle at younger ages and continue to use their devices more often, there is growing interest by researchers, healthcare professionals and the general public regarding whether these long hours spent staring at screens contribute to poor health and, if so, how these negative health outcomes may be avoided.
