Negative Effects of watching Television
It is not really hard to gain information nowadays, we have many resources for information, starting from newspaper, radio, television, to the internet, but the most popular one is television. Television (in short; TV) is a one-sided type of media that used for spreading information. Television has many superiorities than any other information media. Despite its superiorities, television has also many bad effects. According to me there is three bad effects of watching television.
First one is television can make our body susceptible to disease. According to research in UCLA television is one of the reasons why people get insomnia. People who get insomnia never rest well, which make their body’s weak and easy to get sick. Not only that another research found that kids can have myopia due to watching television too long. Some researchers believe that obesity comes from watching television. Because most people who watch television are idler, and they choose to watch television while eating snack, this is really bad habit from watching television, and the negative effect of television in general.
The next negative thing from television is the effect of the inappropriate programs on children. Have you ever heard about smack down? Some kind of television program that showing violence from wrestling. Not only violence but this program also showing public nudity, it will be fine if the watchers were only adult. But in fact ‘Smack down’ was aired in prime time! When all people from adult to kid watch television. Now we have to remember the dark time when many kids die from imitating the move from smack down that they watch in television. Not only that we also did not feel weird for hearing the news about some kid rape his friend, this event also happen from watching television. Television is good to watch for having some information but it became bad if the program were all inappropriate.
