‘Nuther TV Post

Posted in Miscellaneous by sosipater on October 18, 2006

Ok, I may not be as consistent on this issue as I would like, but here is some potentially freaky news concerning a link between TV viewing by young children and Autism.  This is not a definitive conclusion mind you, but it is interesting.  You can read the post about it here.

Here is a quote:

The researchers studied autism incidence in California, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington state. They found that as cable television became common in California and Pennsylvania beginning around 1980, childhood autism rose more in the counties that had cable than in the counties that did not. They further found that in all the Western states, the more time toddlers spent in front of the television, the more likely they were to exhibit symptoms of autism disorders.

And while you are over at Dr. Mohler’s blog, go ahead and read this.  You probably won’t believe it.  We have left “Leave it to Beaver” land everybody, hang on for the ride!
