Is there a connection between eating junk food and watching TV? What do you guys think? Yes. Absolutely. 591 participants around 22 years of age were surveyed. The more they watched TV, the more junk food they ate, and the poor the understanding the participants had of nutrition.

The researchers believe that the lack of knowledge was due to their increased exposure to advertising of unhealthy foods on entertainment shows. Okay, so I'm just curious what about the eating habits of people who watch the news? Like tonight? Yeah, that's exactly. Like you.
