If someone consumes an unhealthy substance incessantly, is unable to live without it, and need it a lot, we call them addicted to it.

Because it is not right for the body.
Hence, the mind.
Which in turn affects our thinking and executing capability.

There is one such addiction most of us do not know is an addiction: catching up on news.
Could be through notifications, trends, WhatsApp group, or actively going through it on the internet.

It is a bandage that covers up the soil of your mind, thus making it powerless to think objectively.

News IS injurious to health.

The best way to deal with anything injurious, is to not allow it in the first place.
