Submission + - Study shows TV makes kids fat, computers don't (google.se) 1

Xemu writes: Computer's don't make children fat, but watching TV for the same lenght of time does. This is shown by a recent Swedish study of all school children in Lund's county conducted by RN Pernilla Garmy. The results were clear: The child's obesity was directly affected by placing a TV in the child's room, but placing a computer in the room had no effect at all. One theory is that it's common to have a snack in front of the TV, while a computer requires a more active user, for example when chatting or playing games.
