Another reason to kick the kids out into the yard.

Young children who spend too much time in front of the television, the computer and video games might be at increased risk for high blood pressure, a new study suggests. American and Spanish researchers examined the association between sedentary behavior and blood pressure in 111 boys and girls, 3 to 8 years old. For seven days, the children wore a special device that recorded their activity levels. In addition, their parents reported how much time the youngsters spent watching TV, playing video games, painting, sitting or doing other low-level activities. – From U.S. News & World Report
