7Healthcast: TV and excess weight gain

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - A new study finds children who have a TV in their bedroom are more likely to be overweight.

Researchers at Dartmouth looked at surveys filled out by more than 6,000 children ages ten to fourteen.

They found nearly 60 percent had a TV in their bedroom. 

And of those kids, more experienced excess weight gain when compared to children without a TV in their room.
