Can social networking make you sick? Italian doctors are claiming that Facebook actually triggered an asthma attack in an 18 year old man. Every time he would log onto Facebook and see how many male friends his ex-girlfriend had, he got upset, triggering the attack. The stress of being dumped and then “unfriended” was too much for him to take.
Critics say that one case study does not prove that social networking is bad for your health; but it does demonstrate how the emotional strain of relationships can effect people’s health…even through social networks.
