Side effects of watching TV and listening to Radio
Vishnu Mohan | 26 Jun 2011

Based on a discussion which was in the air recently

Some Researchers have made a comparison on the side effects of watching TV and listening to Radio. Chief findings of their research are as follows:
 
- Brain cells are better stimulated while listening to radio rather than watching TV.  While listening to radio, the brain cells imagine as if they are placed in the position or scenario of the situation they are listening; while watching TV everything is placed before the brain and therefore the stimulating effect is less.  It is advisable for people, especially old people wanting to keep their brain cells active, spend more time listening to radio.
 
- Children who are obese are believed to be spending lots of time watching TV programmes, besides eating junk food and lack of proper exercise. Parents should ensure that children spend less time watching TV and spend more time in games involving physical exercises for keeping the body in shape.
