According to a new study, all the bad news being reported everywhere we look is making us more aggressive.
Researchers from Iowa State University found that violent stories found in the media cause similar problems with aggression as those caused by other known risk factors, such as bad parenting.
This, of course, is a problem because it seems the news these days is more violent than ever.
I feel like I am always addicted to the news whenever I have it on. But I can tend to get angry at stories when they don't go the right way. I'll literally yell at the TV if I am upset or in shock. That's why I am so happy to be able to disconnect from the news when the weekend finally comes. You just need to in order to have a little bit of piece of mind.
Would I say that it makes me more aggressive? I sure hope not.
