TV and Alzheimer's

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servl...mment/Features
Quote:
In a recent study, the risk of Alzheimer's rose 30 per cent for each hour per day of television watched. "We don't think that television causes Alzheimer's," said Robert Friedland of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. "We think [television] is a marker of an inactive lifestyle." He added that TV might also shut down the brain's natural curiosity and zest for learning, key attributes of activities that seem to offer an Alzheimer's shield.

For me, it was school that ruined my zest for learning and dangerously restricted the amount of useable knowledge I acquired for 12+ yrs. I have found TV quite informative over he years.

Re: TV and Alzheimer's

I wonder when they will find the correlation between ER website posting and Alzheimer's?
