STUDY: Kids With TVs In Bedroom At Higher Risk For Obesity

Children who have a television in their bedroom are at a higher risk for obesity.

A new study finds children with TV's in their bedrooms are twice as likely to be overweight, and nearly three times as likely to be at risk for heart disease and diabetes as those who don't.

Researchers say these kids tend to watch more TV and are more likely to skip more healthy activities like exercise, sleep and family meals.
