Ridiculous Study of the Week #2: Bad Parenting


This just in: poor parental habits may affect children’s health!  I know, it’s crazy right?   It turns out that
children whose parents had high levels of screen time also spent more hours in front of a TV or computer, but children who walked more had lower screen time and increased sleep, a study says. Wow.  Earth shattering  Want more?  Boys had an increased risk of obesity if their fathers were obese, while girls had an increased risk if either parent was obese.  Researchers reported all these pearls at the American Heart Association meeting and then they all patted each other on the backs and had coffee or whatever researchers do.
