A new research suggests that using social networking sites such as Facebook, could make you fat. No, it is not because being glued to networking sites makes you less active (although that reason can't be underestimated either). Scientists claim that people who socialize regularly on Facebook and other networking suites may have higher levels of self-esteem but they lack self-control. This implies that they are more likely to snack on unhealthy food soon after logging off, especially if they had been chatting with people close to them.
While we spend hours together glued to the computer screen, staring at our favorite social networking site and checking out the latest updates posted by our friends, we often fail to realize that we are missing out on something precious - physical activity.
Virtually everyone is on Facebook! As of June 2012, there are approximately 955 million people on the rapidly growing social networking site and undoubtedly, the appeal of the networking site in the modern society is such that anyone who does not have an account on such sites is considered an outcast. According to latest reports, with each passing day, the number of employers, and even some psychologists who believe those not on social networking sites are 'suspicious,' is increasing.
For all intents and purposes, the "War on Drugs" ended when nearly every state passed a law for recreational or medical marijuana use. The truth is, however, that law enforcement officers everywhere still actively pursue drug arrests. If you've been arrested for illicit drug use, you need to take the charges seriously. While there may be a valid defense or a program that can get you out of trouble for a first offense, the stigma can haunt you for a lifetime.
