The chicken or the egg?

The Pierini DIET - click here to learn more

Here’s something that caught my attention during my morning surfing of news on the internet yesterday - internet addicts who devote much of their lives to browsing the internet are more likely to show signs of depression, at least that’s what British researchers have discovered.

These researchers reported that excessive internet use is associated with depression but they are not sure which comes first – the depression or the excessive internet use. Are people suffering from depression drawn to the internet or does the internet cause depression?

As is typical with most research findings, I’m sure these researchers also reported that additional research is needed to find answers to that question.

I have a better research project for these characters. How about a research project to find out which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

Ok, I'm depressed now.
No, actually I'm just bored :)
Does boredom cause depression?
Or does depression cause boredom?
