Too much television, internet linked to long-term health problems for children...

"My children, you must separate what is important and what is not. The spirit is your eternal flame. You will guide by it, My children. Nourish your spirit and not your human bodies. Too much time is spent in amusement of the human body, seeking entertainment that is being created by satan to poison your minds. As I have counseled you in the past, your medias of entertainment are polluted. Your children must be protected against this pollution in pornography and exploitation of sex." - Our Lady, June 16, 1977

LifeSiteNews reported on December 3, 2008:

Children who spend too much time watching television, playing video games, and surfing the Internet are at an increased risk for a plethora of health problems, concludes a survey of several studies published today.

The advocacy group Common Sense Media published the findings after scrutinizing 173 studies since 1980 that offered data on the effects of television, video games, Internet, films, music, and cell phones on children.  The review found that 80% of the studies showed that greater exposure to such media was linked to various health problems, particularly childhood obesity. 

Data also pointed to an increased risk factor for smoking, drug and alcohol abuse, poor school performance, and early sexual activity in children and teens with higher media exposure.  The survey was conducted by Yale University School of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, and California Pacific Medical Center.

“This review is the first ever comprehensive evaluation of the many ways that media impacts children’s physical health,” said Ezekiel J. Emanuel, M.D., Ph.D., National Institutes of Health and lead researcher on the study. "This study provides an important jumping-off point for future research that should explore both the effects of traditional media content and that of digital media - such as video games, the Internet, and cell phones - which kids are using today with more frequency.”

Emanuel said in a Reuters interview that he found the results surprisingly clear on the detrimental effects of too much media, and expressed concern over the fact that many of the health problems were "probably more a matter of quantity than actual content," something that parents will find difficult to rein in amid the "media-saturated" lifestyle of modern America.

One study cited showed that children at the age of three are more likely to be obese by the age of seven if they watch more than eight hours of television a week. Research shows, however, that American children, including toddlers, usually watch far more than eight hours a week. 

The study reports that the average American child spends nearly forty-five hours every week with media, including television, movies, magazines, music, the Internet, cellphones and video games. By comparison, the report says seventeen hours a week are spent with parents, and thirty hours a week in school.

James P. Steyer, Common Sense Media founder and CEO, urged parents and educators to "consider the effects of media" as a key component of protecting children's health in light of the survey's findings. 

"This report makes is clear that we need a bold new agenda on media and technology use," said Steyer.  "We hope this report will create a new sense of urgency in that regard."

"There are parents who are not practicing true discipline with their children. Permissive attitudes, while parents grow lax; parents who do not watch the forms of entertainment of their children; many young souls are losing their purity, learning to accept sin as a way of life. Woe to these parents! What are you doing? Have you tried to eliminate this evil from your world? from your lives? Do you not know that this is all the evil plan to destroy you and your children? What are you doing to change this? You look toward the wrong road when you accept and close your eyes, and deny the dangers to your soul." - Our Lady, May 10, 1972

"O My children, the parents of your nation, the parents of the world, must now assume a full responsibility for the salvation of their children's souls. You cannot depend upon your school systems, your entertainment medias, your avenues of knowledge to the young, for they have become polluted and are cesspools of error and degradation." - Our Lady, October 6, 1977
