A new survey was conducted at Canada's McMaster university to analyze the online habits of the youth. And apparently, 40% of us are addicted to the internet. Originally, the internet addiction test was invented in 1998 but recently, 107 of 254 students tested positive as internet addicts, which has been linked to a rise in mental health problems like anxiety and depression, amongst teenagers.

The study's leader, Dr van Ameringen told Medical Daily that the survey may lead to further research to test whether less time online could alleviate mental distress.
