The Lifestyle Chronicles - Well Known Problems

Clearly, it is well established that watching television is associated with decreased physical activity. In all probability, video games produce the same results. Further, the video games have been linked to decreased academic progress of males.

Repeated description of a problem reaches a limit unless the effort reveals a solution. What can we do about watching television that will make it more beneficial for health, or what can we do about substituting physical activity for watching television? It does not necessarily follow that less television produces more physical activity or better health status.

Describing social problems is easier than solving them - true, true and related but not necessarily causal or preventive.
