There’s growing concern among scientists that indulging in these ceaseless disruptions isn’t good for our brains, in much the way that excessive sugar or fat – other things we evolved to crave when they were in shorter supply – isn’t good for our bodies.

Do you think America needs a Technolgy Diet? Discuss tomorrow with Cefus and Tom on 92.9 The Bull!
