Electronic Devices and Headaches in Teens



It seems to me that teens are experiencing more headaches than in previous history but a recent study suggests that the use of electronic devices is not related to the headaches - unless the teen listen to 1-2 hours of music every day.

A study in Germany interviewed 489 teens who reported suffering from headaches and 536 who said they did not. The two groups of teens aged 13 to 17 were compared and researchers found no associations for television viewing, electronic gaming, mobile phone or computer usage.

The study was published in the journal BMC Neurology.
