T V a time waster, a mind destroyer

A new survey, which was conducted on 3,925 men and women who participated in an earlier study, has established that extensive viewing of television can have a negative impact on mental health.
The group that viewed more than four hours of television a day proved to have the highest level of mental health problems.
