One More Consideration When Deciding on TV Limits

Journal of the American Medical Association

“Prolonged TV viewing was associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and all-cause mortality. Television viewing is the most commonly reported daily activity apart from working and sleeping in many populations around the world. On average, 40% of daily free time is occupied by TV viewing within several European countries1 and 50% in Australia. This corresponds to a daily TV viewing time of about 3.5 to 4.0 hours. In the United States, the average number of daily hours of TV viewing has recently been reported to be 5 hours.”
