How Television Affects Your Brain Chemistry — And That’s Not All!

By Dr. Mercola

Regular newsletter readers know that I am no fan of television, but I am obviously in the minority here in the United States. The average American watches nearly FIVE HOURS of TV a day. This is more than the amount of time I spend in front of a TV in a month, and more than 90 percent of my TV time is spent watching health videos I need to review.

Imagine what you could do if you cut out TV and suddenly had five extra hours in your day to do something productive, good for yourself (exercise!), creative… or maybe simply to relax!

Beyond the time it takes up, though, is the very real impact it has on your brain. As the video alludes, TV is one of the most powerful brainwashing devices there is.

Every year between the food industry and drug companies well over $50 billion is spent on marketing messages to U.S. consumers to influence their food and medication choices. The majority (75 percent) of commercial network television time is paid for by the 100 largest corporations in North America. Some of these companies even have budgets in the billions, and not surprisingly these budgets have the power to influence TV producers to create television that suits their agendas.

And, frequently, these agendas are not aligned with your best interests.

If you do choose to watch TV, even the network news, you must constantly ask yourself who is trying to “sell” you something. But be warned, these corporations are spending large amounts of money to seduce you, so even the most conscious person may not be immune to the messages.

TV itself is not intrinsically evil, and there clearly are many great shows out there, but the KEY is to NEVER watch the commercials. So if you have a TiVO or only watch DVDs you will radically reduce the media’s influence over you. I have been doing this for the last 15 years, and it is one of the reasons why I have been able to get so much done.

I simply do not waste time in front of the TV. As I said earlier, I probably watch less than five hours of non-commercial TV or DVDs per MONTH; typically an hour once a week provides enough passive entertainment for me.

If Not for Yourself, Turn Off Your TV for Your Kids

As an adult, it’s up to you to decide how much time you want to spend in front of your TV (if any), but if you have kids I suggest you set a good example and dramatically limit it.

A growing number of experts agree that allowing children under the age of three to watch television can impair their linguistic and social development, and also put them at risk of health problems including attention-deficit disorder, autism, and obesity.

The good news is that one study found a great majority of parents — 72 percent — are worried about their kids’ exposure to the media.

However, only 23 percent actually took the step of restricting their kids’ TV and video game time.

Although giving up or limiting TV may seem like a drastic step, I suspect that once you do it you will be thrilled by the new activities you and your family will begin to take part in… and I doubt you will ever look back!

SO THAT’s HAPPEN BECAUSE WE PERMIT TO THE VIDEO KILLING THE RADIO…no more comments just a suggestion: trash your TV in the garbage…the day after sell your computer and buy some mold smelling reviews and books.

Buggles said at the end of 70’s all you can learn from their video and do not be extreme to support High-tech you know IT IS A BIG FAKE and a FRAUD against common citizens justified sometimes by some comprensible and good reasons and because these few reasons we have LOST TOO MUCH OF OUR LIVES!!

Have a GW looking for his CQ call.

CRISTOFORO COLOMBO

Italian Ocean Liner “SS CRISTOFORO COLOMBO”

From wikipedia:

SS Cristoforo Colombo was an Italian ocean liner built in the 1950s, sister ship of the SS Andrea Doria.

The origins of the Cristoforo Colombo lie in the situation of the Italian Line at the end of World War II. The war had been devastating to them, as two of their newest and largest ships – the SS Rex and SS Conte di Savoia – had been destroyed. The Italian Line at this point decided to build only moderately-sized ships that were very luxurious, comfortable, and stylish.

The Cristoforo Colombo was built in Genoa at the Ansaldo Shipyards. The Andrea Doria was already built by the time Cristoforo Colombo was completed. She was launched in 1953 and was ready for a 1954 maiden voyage. When launched, the Cristoforo Colombo was larger than the Andrea Doria. Hence, the ship was the largest merchant ship in Italian service.

The Cristoforo Colombo and the Leonardo da Vinci were kept as the flagships and the prime Italian ships on the North Atlantic until 1965, when the new SS Michelangelo and SS Raffaello were placed into service. She was painted entirely white in 1966 in order to match with the other ships in the Italian Line, who had abandoned black as a hull color.
