Info Graphics Project 1b- Research Topic


I decided to research television- on how watching too much television can lead to obesity within kids.

Here are a few statistics I have found:

Average child watches more than 151 hours of television/month

61 percent of Adults and 13 percent of children and adolescent are overweight.

1 out of 4 children in America spend 4 hours or more watching tv.

26% children watch 4 or more hours prepay

67% children watch 2 or more hours per day

With every extra hour/day spent watching tv associated with a 2.2 pound increase in body fat.

7% of them have a high risk of being obese as an adult

Estimated 300,000 deaths a year are caused by obesity.

10.8 percent of children who watch less than 1hr a day of tv are obese

-11.9 percent who watch 1 or 2 hrs of tv and 15.8 percent who watch 3 hours per day- were far more obese.
