Primus Mootry: Observations on city pavement projects, anniversary march and Syria

(Continued)

Don’t watch — I’m certain no one will heed this advice: stop watching television. Very reputable researchers are saying that watching just three hours of television per day can twist your brain into a nerve knot, cause clinical depression, obesity, high blood pressure, and gallstones.

OK, I made that last one up. But the other ones are all true. The experts’ advice? Turn off your television. Don’t watch it for a whole month, and a slimmer, smarter, sexier, healthier “you” will be the result. I can picture the new you right now.

Have a nice day.

Anderson resident Primus Mootry is a retired school teacher. His column appears Wednesdays in The Herald Bulletin.
