Lois 8663293468 ext 21832 18004363717- medical on to Kaiser Our lifestyles today are surrounded by technology; people today seem to be obsessed to obtain the latest gadgets. This has both a positive and a negative effect on human health, on the positive side technology encourages a communication amongst people in our lives we don’t see on a daily basis or have been disconnected from for several years, encouraging long distance communication with loved ones. It is also beneficial because technology gives access to studies and research in other countries that is not accessible in our own country, it gives the capability to advance in sciences and hear thoughts and opinions of others throughout the world. On the negative side, people seem to become addicted to the very technology that allows them to communicate with others via world wide web, they lose sight of the people living and breathing right in front of them. Along with this people tend to forget about exercise and what their bodies demand, on some occasion individuals put off daily hygiene because they fall asleep in front of a gadget, are more prone to eat fast food instead of preparing a healthy meal, and as a result can lead to obesity and health problems.
