Air pollution, ozone levels raise risk of cardiac arrest

(February 22, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From New Zealand - According to research published in Pediatrics, too much TV in childhood may result in long-term antisocial behaviour. Researchers studied nearly 1000 children born in 1972. Participants were surveyed every two years from 5 to 15 years of age to determine how television they watched on a daily basis. Results showed that every additional hour spent watching television on a weeknight raised risk of having a criminal conviction in early adulthood by 30%. Excessive television watching was also linked with aggressive personality traits, negative emotions, and antisocial behaviours. These behaviours could not be explained by socioeconomic status, parenting factors or similar behaviour exhibited in childhood.
