CDC: Teens are spending too much time in front of TV and computer

(WFLX) - The CDC says teens are spending too much time in front of the TV and computer. In two national surveys of kids 12 to 15 years old, researchers found that nearly 75 percent spent at least two hours a day watching TV and using a computer.  

Excessive screen time has been linked to elevated blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and being overweight or obese among kids.
