Four Ways Technology Is Destroying Our Lives

Technology is great in a lot of ways, but it’s also made us less healthy, since we all just sit around in front of our computers all day.  Here are four more ways technology is destroying our lives.

#1.)  Texting Can Kill You in More Ways Than One.  Between 2001 and 2007, 16,000 people died from texting-while-driving-related accidents.  But even texting while WALKING is dangerous.

 In 2008, over 1,000 people visited the emergency room because they tripped, fell, or ran into something while using their cell phones.  It was twice as many cell-phone-related accidents as 2007, and almost four times as many as 2006.

#2.)  Facebook Might Be Causing More Divorces.  Basically, it’s just too easy to get back in touch with your ex.  And if any evidence of an affair shows up online, it’s almost always caught by a friend, family member, or your spouse.

But while Internet usage has gone up in the U.S., the divorce rate has actually gone down.  So there’s not really any hard evidence yet.

#3.)  Blind People Are More at Risk Than Ever Because of Electric Cars.  They’re silent, so you can’t hear them coming.  And some makers of hybrids and electric cars are actually considering adding noisemakers so you CAN hear them.

 #4.)  Staring at So Many Screens Is Making Us Live on Less Sleep.  Staring at your computer, TV, and cell phone late at night messes with your body’s natural rhythm and makes it harder to fall asleep.

And research has shown that if you don’t regularly get enough sleep, it can drastically shorten your lifespan.
