Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

Tuesday, September 04, 2007

YAWN!

A new study from the Leuven School for Mass Communication Research in Belgium indicates the time of the cellphone use among teens has an impact on the level of tiredness.


Use of cellphones after "bedtime" increased the odds of being very tired by 2.2. Between midnight and 3 am, the odds were 3.9 times higher, and those who used it at any time of the night, the odds were 3.3 times higher.

The study group included 1656 schoolchildren with an average age of 13.7 years in the youngest group and 16.9 years in the oldest group.

P.S. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends that computers and TVs be kept out of the bedroom

Keep in mind that someone actually paid for this study.

At least all that texting keeps teen pregnancy rates down, too.
