 Excess Television Viewing Causes Narrowing of Retinal Arteries in Children

Narrowing of retinal arteries is an indicator of elevated risk of heart disease and hypertension in the later years.

It is important that children reduce their time spent on the electronic screen and instead head out for at least an hour of physical activity.
