Title: Study finds link between excessive screen time and increased risk of depression in teenagers
A recent study conducted among teenagers has revealed a connection between excessive screen time and a higher susceptibility to developing depression. Researchers discovered that spending more than four hours per day on screens, including TVs, computers, and smartphones, significantly raised the risk of depression symptoms in teenagers. The study, which analyzed data from over 4,000 participants, also found that those who engaged in physical activities or face-to-face social interactions were less likely to experience depressive symptoms. Experts emphasize the importance of finding a balance between screen time and other activities to promote the mental well-being of adolescents.
