To much Television viewing at a young age is linked to an increase chance for ADD.

I always knew that watching too much TV was bad for you.

This makes complete sense. Think, if 1/3 hours of primetime television is commercials, then obviously the program is being interrupted frequently by advertisements. This breaks concentration and numbs the viewer down to a state where they know they will be interrupted and thus concentration is less intense. Soon, you won't even concentrate on your television program and then habitually this translates over to the rest of the activities the viewer partakes in.

Basically what I'm trying to say is, television, through advertising destroys the ability to concentrate.

Interesting! I wish the article had provided a link to the original research, though.

Nah, I have a sivere case of it, sometimes I cant even read books it gets so bad. I diddn't watch much TV as a kid. Pokemon and Beavis and butthead that's about it. Insite may have a point though.
I've got a whole mess of disorders though. Tourette Syndrome, OCD, and some sort of anger issues I saw a psyciatrist for today.
