 Internet Addiction Given a Disease Status in China
Internet addiction will soon be called a disease, according to reports from a Chinese daily.

According to the Guangzhou Daily, the Ministry of Health is conducting a study on Internet addiction.

Shen Jiahong, director of the Guangzhou Baiyun Psychological Institute, said, this research will be named "pathological Internet use", reports the China Daily.

Deng Weilong, head of the Guangdong team on the prevention of teenaged crimes, pointed out that about 50 per cent of the teenaged delinquents in south China's Guangdong province use the internet quite regularly. (ANI)
