Study: Owning TV, Computer Could Affect Your Weight


New research shows owning a car, TV, or computer could affect your weight.

Researchers looked at low income countries where it's a relatively new thing for most people to have cars, TVs, or computers.

They found people who owned all three had a 31 percent decrease in physical activity from people who didn't own those items.

The car, TV and computer owners also had a higher rate of diabetes and obesity than people who didn't own them.

Scientists say this research partially explains why the rate of obesity in low income countries is starting to approach that of higher income countries like the U.S.
