Advice for teenage girls

Stay away from the internet, sleep more, and drink less.

Such is the advice from the Journal of Pediatrics, which has been studying the link between adolescent obesity and the above factors. OK, seems like pretty good advice whether obesity is a concern or not and, I would venture to add, whether or not you are a teenage girl. But common sense has apparently been so eclipsed that we need scientific studies to tell us so, and we also “need” organizations like the Center for Screen-Time Awareness, designed to provide information so people can live healthier lives in functional families in vibrant communities by taking control of the electronic media in their lives, not allowing it to control them.’

I’m pleased that such a thing exists, but really…. how much will it take for people to actually figure it out for themselves? Just go read Debord.
