Even Men Shop Till They Drop
A new study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry says that shopping compulsively for things that they do not normally want affects men as well and is a gender-neutral disorder.

A Stanford University research initiative says that while compulsive shopping disorder affects women more than men, the latter are still prone to suffer from it. The study says that around 15 percent of US shoppers are compulsive ones who cannot control excessive shopping. Such disorders can increase the risk of depression and even suicidal behavior.
