    (Quotation) Do NOT read the news

    "News is toxic to your body. It constantly triggers the limbic system. Panicky stories spur the release of cascades of glucocorticoid (cortisol). This deregulates your immune system and inhibits the release of growth hormones. In other words, your body finds itself in a state of chronic stress. High glucocorticoid levels cause impaired digestion, lack of growth (cell, hair, bone), nervousness and susceptibility to infections. The other potential side-effects include fear, aggression, tunnel-vision and desensitisation."


    Title of article: "News is bad for you -- and giving up reading it will make you happier"

    I think it is vital to be aware of what's happening in the world but to obsess or dwell on it/watch or read the news 24/7 is unhealthy for anyone...
    "For God “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him." 1 Corinthians 15:27

    People who get that way over the news are looking to be triggered. They're snowflakes, drama queens, victim culture victims.

    People need to butch up and watch the news without conniptions.

    Tell that to the man-child trump who has to respond to anything with a Twitter tantrum after he reads it.

    i know what’s going on already. Another repeat of history. “ the news “ is only for confirmation as to how far along we are in the storyline.
