TV Viewing Linked to Obesity

fatkidTV watching = increased obesity.

A recent study of teens showed that obesity was directly related to television watching.  The more time spent in front of the TV, the greater the obesity.  It seems that the same is not true for video games and computer time, though there are many other health issues associated with exposure to violence in video games, and total screen time effects on social interaction and well-being.
