Advertising on internet websites harms the brain.
Debate Rounds (1)
*note* Einstein was even said to be so intelligently gifted because he had the ability to focus on specific ideas for immense amounts of time.
Advertising on Internet websites doesn't "harm" the brain in any way. You mentioned how we are forced to watch :30 second advertisements instead of being able to focus on content? Well, most sites, such as Youtube, have the option of "skipping" the ad, so you don't have to watch it unless you find it particularly interesting or engaging.
Also, even if you aren't given the choice of skipping over the advertisements, who says the actually negatively impact your brain? In fact, I might even go so far as to say that they help you pay attention better, not worse. Because if we are trained to be able to focus even with distractions, then we'll naturally become all the better at focusing right?
And it's not like advertising was solely invented by the Internet anyhow. Advertisements have been appearing on signs, magazines, and comic books long before the days of the Internet.
