The Dangers of Excessive TV Watching

A doctor in Britain has identified fifteen different health risks associated with excessive television watching. Among them is ADHD. In light of this, Dr. Aric Sigman, an associate fellow of the British Psychological Society, has developed guidelines for how much television children should be allowed to watch.
"'Many believe that we shouldn't make parents feel guilty about the amount of time children spend in front of a screen and the early age at which they start', Dr. Sigman said. 'But we must now make a clear judgment that child health is more important than parental guilt.'"
Dr. Sigman recommends no television at all for children under three and no more than two hours a day for anyone 16 and over. Read more online.
