Teenagers have the same level of activity as an elderly person, a shocking study reveals.

Very little brain activity and no critical thinking skills. My grand kids who are 11 and 9, and do not have phones, show tremendous analytical skills and reasoning.

Too many video games and faces stuck in cell phones. Technology not always good.
