According to a new study there is a strong  - and negative -- correlation between the time kids spend with various media (TV, Internet, video games) and health issues.

In a clear majority of those studies more time with television, films, video games, magazines, music and the Internet was linked to rises in childhood obesity, tobacco use and sexual behavior. A majority also showed strong correlations — what the researchers deemed “statistically significant associations” — with drug and alcohol use and low academic achievement.
