With our reflexive attraction and attention to the endless stream of available information/stimulus on our phones, tablets, and computers, digital addiction has not only become a dominant presence in our lives, but it’s causing real damage to our physical and mental health.
In the greater scheme of things, maybe it doesn’t matter what gets your attention because they all share some common ground: lifestyle behaviors are the predominant factors that determine whether you may or may not develop one of these destructive health conditions.
The strength, the health of our immune system should be our first line of defense (or is it offense?) for creating wellness and avoiding – not simply fighting – disease. This seems to be missing from the conversation and from the primary focus of various organizations such as the American Cancer Society.
