Wageningen, The Netherlands (The Adobo Chronicles) - Selfies seem to be taking quite a bit of beating lately.  First, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) recently officially classified selfies as a mental disorder.  Now, a Dutch researcher says selfies can cause a severe sexual imbalance.

The Dutch researcher, Christyntjes Van Gallgher and his team from Wageningen University studied 800 people who self-identified as ‘selfie addicts.’  The study found that 83% of the study participants had zero to low sexual activity, leading the researchers to conclude that selfitis, as defined by the APA, also causes  sexual deficiency syndrome, a condition that depletes the body’s hormones and sexual appetite. The study has a margin of error of  plus or minus 3%.

The researchers recommended that selfie addicts reduce their social media activity (taking self photos and posting them on the Internet) by at least 50% in order to regain normal production of their hormones.
