Study: kids lose 7 minutes of sleep for every hour of TV

Researchers found that each hour spent by a child in front of the TV corresponded with 7 minutes less sleep on average.Researchers at MassGeneral Hospital for Children and the Harvard School of Public Health have established a link between the time children spend in front of the tube and the duration of their nightly sleep. Their findings suggest that more time spent watching TV corresponds with less time asleep, particularly when there is a TV in the child's room.
