TVs and computers may cause heart disease in children


CBC  New reported that a recent study by researchers from five Canadian universities has discovered that too much time spent in front of screens is bad for children, and its not the eyes affected.


Extended time in front of the TV leads to an increase in food intake and caloric consumption. This affects the cardiovascular health because it results in reduced High-density Lipoprotein cholesterol, also known as “good cholesterol” which protects against heart diseases.

The researcher recommend that parents should encourage through family group exercise a minimum of 60 minutes of physical activities to help reduce TV time.
