ABSTRACT
The article highlights the results of a study on television (TV) watching among children. Children ages 9-12 were each given 1,000 calories of a favorite snack and told to eat as little or as much as they liked. Those who watched a TV show while chowing down consumed twice as many as calories as those who did not. TV watching and high blood pressure were directly linked in a national survey of 4,500 teens.
