Is chess damaging to one's mental health?

@KKevinW I have some pretty wild dreams, but I have no idea what you are talking about.
Sending a whole page of wikipedia on "logic" proves the coincidence of madness and chessaphilia

@hash11011 I have seen some articles suggesting that chess could help with ADHD, but I am more impressed with how many chess players suffer from ADHD. What's that all about?

@hash11011 has there been any updates on that study? The only results I can find on google are either from 2015 saying how it needs to be tested further with more people or forum posts.

Tal had heavy drinker and smoker... He lived with "full lungs", which ruin his health... Obviously doesn't care of his personal hygiene and look.

i thought tal always had health problems, his entire life??? i assume made significantly worse by 'heavy drinking and smoking' which i wasn't aware of..... anyway, he looks perfectly sane here, actually.
