The Internet is useful, however this does not mean it does not have its disadvantages. The Internet has been proven to have a negative impact on the users' brain, regardless if they are teenagers or adults. Surfing the Internet for too long is known as internet addiction. 1 in 3 people consider internet as important as food and water. Addiction will also cause brain damage as a recent study shows the brains of online addicts shrunk by 10 to 20 percent. This addiction can affect our lives by causing sleep deprivation and relationship stress. I would like to add that many children have been bullied online by non-classmates. All in all, i agree that the internet brings more harm.

Internet Brought us more good than harm because people use it to do what they cannot do in real life. Example, working adults use the to do research or sending file to their colleague . Therefore internet do us more good .

No. The internet is a tool and like all tools can be misused. There was a period when you could not read the bible because the church believed such knowledge could only be used by those with the wisdom to understand the knowledge it contained, Many parts of the bible are quit racey. The very first book of the bible tells a story of a man who drank so much wine he passed out naked. For those who have never had to research any topic without the internet will never know how difficult it was to find the right books and the right pages of that book that contained the data you were looking for. And then you had to repeat the process 2 or 3 times to determine if the information was valid. It would take months to write a 500 word paper that I now can do overnight.
If you think that a porno site, our some misinformation outweights the access to data that was only available by traveling to the library of congress and skimming through dozens of books that were only available after filling out a form that you gave to the librarian who often took 15 to 30 minutes to deliver. Your out of your mind. I only wish I had grown up with the internet. Today you can have free an education that was only available to the very elite only 20 years ago. And If there is anything I have learned in my 50+ years is knowledge is power. You now have the power to be anything you want to be if you will only use it. If you think the game is rigged and there is nothing you can do about it well consider this. The only way to rig a game is to have knowledge that no one else has. And please learn early to determine the sources of the information being supplied. It doesn't take much practice to determine fact from fiction when you consider the motives of the messenger.
