Why is this important?

The combined sedentary time through venues including televisions shows, video games, movie videos, Internet web sites, cell phone texting, and other computer activities is referred to collectively as screen time.

Besides increasing the risk for chronic health conditions, studies show that early television exposure among infants and toddlers could lead to attention problems, speech deficits, and language delays.
