How television viewing affects a child's sleep

See study: http://hvrd.me/vLjKM

A study following more than 1,800 children from ages 6 months to nearly 8 years old found a small but consistent association between increased television viewing and shorter sleep duration.

Das länderübergreifende Abitur ist gestartet: Erstmals werden Schülern in sechs Bundesländern teils identische Aufgaben gestellt. Ziel ist es, die Anforderungen vergleichbar zu machen. Was halten Sie davon?
