Too Much TV Time Leads to Worse Cognition

Middle-age adults who had 25+ years of high TV viewing (3+ hours per day) and low physical activity were 2X as likely to have poor cognitive performance (cognitive speed, memory, and executive functioning) compared to those with low TV viewing  and high physical activity. Each behavior was independently associated with worse cognition, also.
