  • Maribel Carmona


Recent reviews have shown that higher levels of television viewing are related to adiposity in children and adults concluded froma largemeta-analysis of mostly cross-sectional studies that although a significant relationship between television viewing and fatness exists in children, it was likely to be too small to be clinically important. The aim of this study was to investigate longitudinal relationships between television viewing in adolescence and body mass index.
