Our Digital Lives Don't Need to Make Us Unhappy, Unhealthy, and Unwise
Fifty five years ago this month, America reached a hazardous milestone: "peak tobacco." Men and women that year smoked more cigarettes than ever before recorded - 523 billion of them. Only after four decades of slow decline - and millions of smoking-related deaths - did American culture reluctantly jettison tobacco as a symbol of social status. Today we see another precipice on the horizon, with potentially catastrophic effects on human health. Historians and clinicians may someday call this moment "peak content." American adults now spend over 11 hours per day listening to, watching, reading or generally interacting with media - sometimes longer. That's more time than we spend eating and sleeping. From YouTube videos to viral tweets, we are ingesting a huge volume of media, and it has consequences. Out of this cloud of mood-altering material emerges a new set of health challenges. One in five Americans is clinically depressed. Tens of millions more suffer from mild to moderate anxiety and other mood disorders. But current research doesn't yet support a clear and causal link. More work is required to understand the complex relationship between media diets and depression-mood disorders are not a new phenomenon, even if suicide rates appear to be increasing. The technologies fueling our media consumption are outpacing the rate of scientific inquiry, making real or verifiable effects hard to understand and perhaps harder study appropriately.
