Teen TV Viewing Linked to Adult Depression

Feb 3, 2009  •  Post A Comment

A new study from the University of Pittsburgh and Harvard Medical School suggests there is a link between the amount of TV watched by adolescents and the likelihood that they will be depressed as adults, the Los Angeles Times reports. The study found that those adults who showed signs of depression watched more TV when they were teenagers than those did not, the newspaper says. The evidence, however, does not directly suggest that it was watching TV that caused the depression but instead hints that the time spent on TV could have hindered other emotional development, the Times clarifies.
