Too much screen time?

Do you have too much screen time?

My opinion is that kids should not have as much screen time as they do right now. I think that kids be limited to 2 hours max of screen time maximum. In this smore i will show you why and i will show you even more people that agree with me.

Do your eyes like screens?

An average american uses electronics nine hours a day and to answer your question your eyes HATE it. Just to get you to belive me hear what Dr. Christopher starr has to say. Dr. Cristopher starr said "some of us are using these things for up to nine hours a day. Youre eye muscles have to focus but being close makes them non-focused and that can be fatiguing." (Fatiguing means exhausted.) Dr. Christopher starr isnt done either!

Heres what else he has to say about screens! "When you're not blinking and you're staring and your eyes are wide open tears evaprerate very quickly You get dry spots, blurred vision it can cause redness pain and over the course of the day it just worsens"

Obese are you kidding me?

No im actually not kidding you! 1 in 3 kids in the U.S. are obese. Also to add to that 1in 20 people that are obese have extreme obesity! I mean come on people how hard is it to go outside and take a walk? Also kids are only supposed to have 2 hours of screen time a day and kids under 2 years old arent supposed have any! You might think what?! But its true kids under 2 years arent supposed to have any because their brain isnt fully grown yet and screens can mess with its growing! Another bad thing that can happen is you can develop diabetes!

Consequences seriously?

These are some consequences! 74% of educaters use electronics in school everyday. Reasearcher Dr. Whitaker found that people who use electronics for four hours or more are twice as likely to have a heart attack or cardiac event. The U.S. National Library of Medicine said too much screen time can raise kids risk of attention problems anxiety and depression. The U.S. National Library of Medicine also said that it could make it hard for kids to sleep at night. Whats the point of using to much screen time all it does is make life harder for you. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/mental-wealth/201402/gray-matters-too-much-screen-time-damages-the-brain
