Is Childhood Obesity Related to TV Addiction?
Groves, David
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v16 n11 p116-18,120-22 Nov 1988
Excessive television viewing is associated with obesity in children because it decreases time spent on physical activity, and promotes overeating of snacks and high calorie foods. Childhood obesity demands physicians' concern because of the physical and psychological damage which follows its victims into adulthood. (IAH)
