BBC News Hangout: Is modern life killing us?

Education Correspondent Reeta Chakrabarti and World Have Your Say Presenter Ben James address the issue in the latest of our BBC News Google hangouts.

One contributor Paul said: "There are some wonderful things about technology... Even though it stresses me out to receive a text message, responding to a text message - because it's from my sister and she loves to hear from me - is really important."
