Study Finds Email Worse For The Mind Than Marijuana

Email addicts drop 10% in IQ scores, twice that of marijuana users according to a study carried out by psychiatric experts at King's College, London. A clinical trial involving over a thousand participants produced other startling results.

Dopeheads are renowned for their doziness, lethargy and an inability to focus, but these symptoms are apparently amplified in email users, with a deterioration in mental capacity being linked to an addiction to technology.

In the trial, 20% of participants would rush off to check their inbox during a conversation, putting their immediate relationships at risk. Similar studies have found non-computer using children performed better in literacy and numeracy.
