Wednesday Bookworms

The Wednesday Bookworms will discuss Glow Kids: How Screen Addiction Is Hijacking Our Kids - And How to Break the Trance by Nickolas Kardaras (St. Martin’s, $16.99). Kardaras examines how age-inappropriate screen tech has profoundly affected the brains of an entire generation. Brain imaging research is showing that stimulating glowing screens are as dopaminergic (dopamine activating) to the brain's pleasure center as sex. And a growing mountain of clinical research correlates screen tech with disorders like ADHD, addiction, anxiety, depression, increased aggression, and even psychosis. Most shocking of all, recent brain imaging studies conclusively show that excessive screen exposure can neurologically damage a young person's developing brain in the same way that cocaine addiction can.
