In america research has affirmed that there is a strong correlation between hours of TV watching and obesity. Plenty of the reason that those who watch many hours of TV tend to be milder is due to the snacking that goes on while watching television. Microwavable popcorn, potato chips and dip, doughnuts and other unhealthy snacks combined with the sedentary nature of television watching is a recipe for obesity. Taking up an active hobby is a fantastic way to break free from from the TV.
