Cancel your cable to get smarter and lose weight!

Ok, so that's not a promise, but here's one lady's story: http://www.columbia.edu/~ip71/w116/2006/03/why-you-too-should-cancel-cable.html

Not my typical health topic, but this could be a boost to your health! Why? Did you know your mind is less active when watching TV than when sleeping? "Educational videos" is an oxymoron. And you will learn to think more independently about taking medications (drugs) and eating the normal, but unnatural diet pushed by TV. Think of the stress you could reduce if you use your time better or just give your brain some quiet to think. AND putting that money toward better quality food will overtime have a HUGE impact on your health.

Personally, for a time we were unable to get TV. When I had the option again, I didn't want it! We don't even have an antennae.

I collect my favorite movies, and get others from the library. (I research what movies I want to watch online, I order them from the library online, and can get up to 5 for a week with no charge! Who can beat that? All I have to do is go to the library once a week and I ) I can even watch CNN live online and watch the few other "important" things I miss on YouTube a day later.

My TV's main use? T-Tapp videos for me and ballet, Math lessons, and German movies for my girls. Who needs cable?
