Spending too much time online can damage your immune function, warns a new study.
People with high levels of Internet addiction problems are 30 percent more likely to catch colds and flu than those who spend less time on the Internet, the findings showed.
“Those who spend a long time alone on the Internet experience showed reduced immune function as a result of simply not having enough contact with others and their germs,” explained one of the researchers Phil Reed, professor at Swansea University in Wales, Britain.
Islamic State (IS) recruit Areeb Majeed was arrested when he returned to India for fighting along with the IS in Syria. The offence was not committed in India but since the IS was banned in March, his case could be handled.
“Designating individuals as terrorists would help in keeping a check on their travel and we can also impose a ban. It will also enable us to freeze their bank accounts, used for terror financing. Most importantly, it will help us make a strong case in court,” said an official.
