Many studies have been conducted on the effects that social media have on mental health, however few have studied the physical effects. This project used a self-evaluation, a blood pressure test, and a pupil dilation test to determine if using more Twitter, Facebook, and text messaging has an effect on adrenal health and cortisol levels of teens between 15 and 18 years of age.
