Facebook Causes Cancer

While searching through, I found this interesting article. And no, it doesn't just bash Facebook. MySpace, Hi5, Twitter are just as bad.

Social Networking sites such as Facebook could raise your risk of serious health problems by reducing levels of face-to-face contact, a doctor claims.

Emailing people rather than meeting up with them may have wide-ranging biological effects, said psychologist Dr Aric Sigman.

Increased isolation could alter the way genes work and upset immune responses, hormone levels and the function of arteries. It could also impair mental performance.
