New study on dangers of reality TV

Friday, March 19th, 2004 - 10:10 am PST

Every time you sit in front of the TV and watch a so-called “reality TV” show, you lose about 60 minutes from your life. Such is the startling findings of a new study in this month’s New England Journal of Medicine. “While an hour here or there might not seem like much,” said Dr. Stanislaw Eckert, “they quickly add up. Even a casual viewer of shows like Adultery Island or Celebrity Pet Mortuary can be losing precious weeks — even months off their lives that could have been spent watching other highly engrossing TV shows, such as televised sports or 1980s sitcom reruns.”
