The scientific truth about the effects of television
Sophie, 2 years old, watches TV for 1 hour a day. This doubles his chances of having attention problems as he grows up. Lubin, 3 years old, watches TV 2 hours a day. This triples his chances of being overweight. Lina, 15, watches shows like Desperate Housewives. This triples her chances of experiencing an unwanted early pregnancy. Henri, 60, watches TV 4 hours a day. René, his twin, is satisfied with half. Henri is twice as likely to die of a heart attack as René. For specialists, including the author, there is no longer any doubt: television is a scourge. It exerts a profoundly negative influence on intellectual development, language, attention, imagination, violence, sleep, addictions, sexuality, body image, eating behavior, obesity and life expectancy.
