Children who watch too much TV may have ‘damaged brain structures’—according to a study that “looked at 276 children aged between five and eighteen, who watched between zero and four hours TV per day.”
Key Points from the Article:
“Watching too much television can change the structure of a child’s brain in a damaging way” and that the changes are “linked with lower verbal intelligence.”
“Researchers found that the more time a child spent viewing TV, the more profound the brain alterations appeared to be” (regardless of what was watched).
