Death by Television

What do you think about the study finding that every hour of television watched per day while being sedentary may increase the risk of dying prematurely, and particularly from cardiovascular disease? See

Just say “no” to TV.

It's the biggest drug addiction in the US.

Drug addiction you say?

  • The drug (TV) user suffers severe withdrawal symptoms if the drug is taken away. Don't believe me? Turn it off and leave it off for a week.
  • Ever increasing doses and strengths of the drug are needed (we've gone from “Leave It To Beaver” to “Sex In The City”)
  • The drug user cannot tell the difference between the drug induced state and reality. Ask any TV star who plays a bad person. If he/she goes to the grocery store, people will shout great obscenities at them as if they were the character instead of an actor pretending to be a bad character
That's what they taught us about heroin addiction.

I haven't watched since 1985 and am much better for it. You can do it too. And you will save a lot of money on your cable/satellite subscription while you are at it. And when there is no TV to watch, you can actually spend quality time with your family.

Try it.

It is basically same to people staring at computer screen.
