Holy crap, mom was right!

Millions of children and teenagers could be damaging their health by watching too much television, a new study showed today.

Those who sat in front of the TV for more than two hours a day were at higher risk of smoking, gaining excess weight, and having high cholesterol as adults.

Their cardiovascular fitness – a measure of how well the heart is working - was also more likely to be poor at the age of 26.

Scientists in New Zealand who carried out the study urged parents to limit their children’s TV viewing to no more than one to two hours a day. MORE...

This is just another way of saying your child is a fat, lazy, son of a bitch... Whatever works, I guess.
