A new research study says that kids who watch a lot of TV should be watching their waistlines instead.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

New research proves just how harmful watching too much TV can be for children's health.  Expert recommendations limit television time for kids to less than two hours a day, but a study from the University of Montreal found that every extra hour of TV watched per week by adolescents translates to a half-millimeter increase in their waistlines.

Data also showed kids who spend more time in front of the tube score lower on physical fitness tests.
