In this day and age, spending time in front of the TV has become a debatable issue among people from all walks of life all around the world. Although TV channels play an increasingly important role in spreading news and awareness, there are a number of people hold the opposite view. This essay will first discuss the potential negative impacts of TV along with supporting arguments, followed by a reasoned conclusion.

To begin with, there are myriad of reasons why TV is dangerous, but the most preponderant one stems from the fact that TV makes a person out of contact with society. Then there are concerns about physical damage to the eyes by spending an enormous amount of time in front of the TV. According to startling research, for example, around 30% of people in the United States suffering from eye diseases by watching TV.

On the other hand, some people adopt an opposing view and tend to believe that TV plays a significant role in keeping them up to date with current affairs and entertainment. It should also be taken into account that television decreases the depression and loneliness of elderly people. As an illustration, extensive research has shown that elderly who watch TV for two hours per day release better happy hormones from their body.

To conclude, while there are several compelling arguments on both sides, I profoundly believe that the disadvantages of TV far outweigh its advantages. Parents should take measures to limit screen time to 1 hour a day or less for children.
