TV watching and asthma-a link?

Too much tube time for children may increase their risk for -breathing- problems!  Scottish researchers base their findings on data from more than 3-thousand children.  Those who watched TV for more than two hours every day were almost twice as likely to have been diagnosed with asthma than kids who did not watch as much.  Researchers aren't sure why this may be, but they say some studies have shown certain breathing patterns in children may be associated with sedentary behavior.
