Screen Time is Ruining Our Fitness

We spend way too much time in front of the television and other electronic devices.  Studies and reports on the obsession with the younger generations “screen devices” proves it, says Lily Rothman of Time magazine.  But don’t rely on the statistics from some obtuse government agency or random study.  Just look at how much television we as adults watch to determine how it’s ruining our fitness and health.   The Pot and the Kettle Believe me I’m no different from[…]
