    Internet addiction could signal other problems

    "Internet addiction may signal other mental health issues among college students, according to a new study.
    Canadian researchers say their findings could affect how psychiatrists approach people who spend a significant amount of
    time online. For the study, the researchers evaluated the internet use of 254 freshmen at McMaster University in Ontario. The researchers used a tool called the Internet Addiction Test (IAT), developed in 1998, as well as their own scale based on more recent criteria."
