German Scientists Find Internet Addiction Gene
Although the world wide web has been around for less than a generation, Dr Christian Montag from the University of Bonn, said they had found a gene in people who could not drag themselves away. Most were women. Dr Montag said that, biologically speaking, internet addiction had the same genetic cause as smoking addiction. He said: “Internet addiction is not a figment of our imagination. Researchers and therapists are increasingly closing in on it."
