Television Disadvantages

After reading ReadingPopularCulture, it came to mind of how television is a huge problem in the world. After finding out about this and researching about it, I am glad I don't spend too much of my time watching television. 

People shouldn't watch too much television because it makes people waste time that could be used in more beneficial activities. The time we spend watching TV could be applied to useful activities like exercise, reading, interacting with friends and family, activities that are a crucial for a healthy lifestyle. 

People also shouldn't watch too much television because it negatively affects people’s mental development. According to several scientific studies, watching TV for prolonged periods of time has a negative effect over the intellectual development of children and leads to deterioration of the mental capacity in older people by causing both attention and memory problems in the long term.

The link below is a study that was put on the news about the disadvantages of watching too much television.

People should limit the time they use watching television, and get out to do activities to function the body properly, also to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
