Screen time linked to increased diabetes risk in children


Children who spend more than three hours per day in front of their TVs, tablets or smartphones are at greater risk of developing diabetes, according to new research.

The study found that children who watch TV, play video games and use electronic devices for three or more hours per day are more likely to have higher levels of body fat and resistance to the hormone insulin than those who spend an hour less in front of their screens.
