Americans spend an average of 29 hours a week watching television – which means in a typical life span we devote 13 uninterrupted years to our TV sets! The biggest problem with mass media isn’t low quality – its high quanitity. Cutting down just an hour a day would provide extra years of life – for music and family, excercise and reading, conversation and coffee.
