New study links high blood pressure and obesity in kids with television

Kids are spending too much time in front of TVs and computers.

Too much time in front of the screen has been linked to high blood pressure and obesity.

Health officials recommend kids limit TV and computer use to two hours a day.

New government numbers show only 27% of kids meet that daily limit.

The study focused on kids 12 to 15 years old.

The data came from the National Center for Health Statistics.
