Rabbi Warns that Internet Causes Cancer

From YNetNews:

The Internet causes draught and terminal disease – so claims a new marketing campaign publicized in the ultra-Orthodox community and aims to curb use of the world wide web.

“The Internet causes disease and all types of adversity. Since the creation of the world, there has never been invented a tool so dangerous and corrupting like it,” reportedly wrote Rabbi Shmuel Halevi Wosner.
