More Media Leads to Unhealthy Kids

Dec 2, 2008  •  Post A Comment

A new report by the National Institutes of Health and Common Sense Media, an advocacy group, finds stronger correlations between increased media consumption among children and unhealthy habits, the New York Times reports. The study reviewed 173 other studies that found ties between increased TV, Internet, video games, movies, music and magazine consumption and childhood obesity, sexual behavior and tobacco use, the newspaper says. Common Sense Media hopes the report will help support new media education legislation.
