Nowadays watching too much TV became a very widespread problem. We can see TV in every home, even the parents begin to teach their children to watch TV in early childhood, because they think that is a good way to develop a child. Sometimes people forget that the TV does not always carries only positive aspects. “Indeed, a negative relationship exists between the amount of time spent watching TV and children and adolescents health status, including overweight, school and verbal performance, perceived cognitive and attention abilities, and violence or bullying” (Patriarca, 2009). Negative effects of the TV became quite obvious fact. As a consequence, TV affects human physical, mental and social health in a very destructive ways.
One reason why people should not watch too much TV is reduction of mental capacity. Because when people watch an excessive amount of television they do not look for new solutions of any problems. TV changes the way of thinking. This is especially noticeable in the younger generation. Usually the film ends happily, even if the characters in the film were pursued by criminal group or Interpol. Because of this, people stop to look for the solution of problems and expect that everything will be resolved by itself well. In their brains creativity and the desire to create completely replaced by continuous consumption of the information which was produced by TV. That is why after watching too much TV people get typical forgetfulness and decreased ability to think abstractly. Also excessive TV watching changes the outlook on life. Most of those who met in real life with the representatives of various professions, say that, in reality, these people are quite different. They are very different from television characters, because TV does not show the reality, but try to show perfect life.
