11 Reasons You Should Stop Watching Television Now

 While many people will argue that a little bit of TV never hurt anyone, the amount of a “little bit” is constantly in debate. A Neilson report found that the average American watches more than 34 hours of television each week.

If that number doesn’t shock you I don’t know what will. If you’re now thinking “Those people are crazy—I’d never watch that much” then I invite you to do your own math. Simply write down all the shows you watched this week and how long they were.

That number is how many hours you’re losing each week to television. This is time that could be spent with your family, friends or relaxing in other ways. Today we’ll look at some more reasons why you should stop watching television, and how it will improve your life.

Wasting Time

It’s pretty obvious that when you’re watching TV you’re not doing anything else. Time spent watching television is similar to being asleep.

For:

  The supporter of animal testing argue that many medical treatments and procedures have been developed from experiments on animals, a total ban on the use of animals will prevent a great deal of basic medical research and the possible production of certain vaccines. Experiments on animals assist in discovering ways to help people and other animals for the future. Animal testing provides scientists with important data to treat human diseases. Legislation in most countries set standards for animal testing and laboratories have guidelines to prevent cruelty.


Against:

 Animal rights campaigner argue that animals have the right to live their own lives peacefully and we aren't allowed to meddle only them just because we can. Many experiments cause discomfort, suffering, harm, pain and death. There are other alternatives available: computer simulation can be used to observe the results of drugs on the animals. The opponents to animal research say that the result are not applicable to humans. They believe animal testing is cruel, inhumane and unethical.
