Surgeon General Vivek Murthy is pushing to require a warning label on social media platforms to advise users that social media has been connected to mental health risks for adolescents.

Murthy in an opinion piece for The New York Times called for a surgeon general’s warning label to be placed on social media platforms, similar to those warning labels that appear on tobacco and alcohol products. He noted that studies have shown that warning labels on tobacco products can increase awareness and change a user’s behavior.

“It is time to require a surgeon general’s warning label on social media platforms, stating that social media is associated with significant mental health harms for adolescents,” he wrote.

After following threads in this section and the religious forums there are likely some adults that need warnings and not just adolescents
