Prolonged TV

And our excuse would be?

“Oh I just watch for 2 hrs daily!”

lol 😀

As if 2 hrs per day won’t cause you anything. 🙂

Poison is poison. Sometimes slow and sometimes instant.

TV is not just idiot box but a slow poison. Avoid it. Make sure your kids are not addicted to it.

बाकी आपकी इच्छा | आपकी जिंदगी…आपके निर्णय..

And this list does not count mental disorders TV cause. Brainwashing TV does. 😛 😉 And this only talk about TV. I add laptop/computer/mobile in same category.

What do you do to counter compulsory exposure to screen at work? Do you exercise? Do you take small breaks? Do you do running ? Do you visit jungles and rivers often?

======================

On average, 80% of American adults watch 3.5 hours of television per day and multiple observational studies have demonstrated a link between TV viewing and poorer health. In this new study published in the December issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, investigators reported an association between increasing hours of television viewing per day and increasing risk of death from most of the major causes of death in the United States.

Virtually all Americans (92%) have a television at home and watching TV consumes more than half of their available leisure time, potentially displacing more physical activities. Previous studies had reported a relationship between TV viewing and elevated risk of death from cancer and cardiovascular disease. In this study, researchers at the National Cancer Institute looked at more than 221,000 individuals aged 50-71 years old who were free of chronic disease at study entry. They confirmed the association for higher mortality risk from cancer and heart disease. In addition, they identified new associations with higher risk of death from most of the leading causes of death in the U.S., such as, diabetes, influenza/pneumonia, Parkinson’s disease, and liver disease.

Toxic Advertisements and subtle memes

There is recent ad by TATA sky where Mr. Bacchan is doing some nautanki. Funny, isn’t it?

I see two hidden messages behind the ad.

1) It is this medium (and entertainment industry at large) who is controlling us like puppets.
2) Puppets are reflection of the creators. All puppets look same except when they are dressed differently. Similarly, TV, mass entertainment, passive entertainment kills our uniqeness as an individual and slowly injects popular planned generalized views about life. (Check the video. All puppets look same as Puppeteer Bacchan)

🙂 Do we really want this to happen with our precious unique life? What about our children? Future of the world? Do we want them to live like puppets of establishment?

Think about it.

Btw, The Internet commands our attention with far greater insistence than our television or radio or morning newspaper ever did. Do not surrender! Go, meet two new social contacts in real world before making 10 new friends here! (y) 🙂

Do frequent self-check: Am I one of those puppet in TATA sky ad? If yes, it is time to switch off 🙂
