Interesting Fact # 1249 - The Internet

According to a study carried out at the University of Leeds in the UK, excessive internet use is associated with depression.

(The study, published in the journal Psychopathology, found that 1.2% of people surveyed could be classed as "internet addicts", and many of these were depressed. But they couldn't figure out if the depression was caused by excessive internet use, or if depressed people just use the internet a lot?)
