Is television to blame for your insomnia?

Hot on the heels of our post about the economics of insomnia medication, we just read this article from Dr. Kate Scannell about the health dangers of television.

Apart from the more obvious dangers (falling down the stairs whilst carrying a TV, the TV falling onto a child), she goes further and suggests that not only do the often sensational, panic-bating news shows cause us worry which may affect our sleep, TV ads from drug companies may also be to blame for our tossing and turning at night.

What's more, children could be even more susceptible to the unhealthy side effects of television. In 2007, a study published in Pediatrics found that television viewing for more than two hours a day could promote behaviour, attention and sleep problems.

Is it time to cut down on our television viewing habits in order to get a better night's sleep? Nobody can argue that sitting in front of a TV is better than being active - but can television really have such an impact on our health, and more crucially our sleep?
