How much TV is too much?

Television is something that almost everybody has and uses. We started doing research to find out if television is bad and why. We like to watch television so it was important to us to see if it is really bad or not.

We learned that it is OK to watch television, but not too much, because television is bad if you watch it for a long time. Watching for too long or watching too close to the screen can make your eyes tired or give you a headache.

We think that watching television makes you want to eat more food. And we all know that overeating is bad for our bodies. You are also not moving around as much and we all know that we need exercise.

Almost everyone we know watches way too much television. It would probably be best to limit the amount of time you watch it. We admit that we would watch too much television ourselves. But after learning about it, we have started to limit it and we hope you can too. Try and find other things to do instead so that you won’t have the problems. We like to go outside and play sports when the weather is nice. We could also read a book instead. Find fun things to do instead of watching television all day.
