|Watching too much TV may mess up the delicate hormonal balance of teenagers and push many of them into having early sex — or even late sex if they, like, can't sleep — say researchers|
Professor Salvatore Fallacio of the University of Bologna, who led the team of Italian scientists who conducted the research, found that kids denied access to TV for just one hour experienced a 300% jump in their melatonin levels. If confirmed, this research would prove what many parents, teachers, and dirty perves who hang out in chat rooms, have long suspected; sitting in front of a TV screen or Computer monitor makes you randy.
Professor Fallacio believes that the light and radiation emitted by
computer and television screens, interferes with the production of Melatonin,
the hormone thought to prevent the early onset of puberty. "This
is very significant result," he told Utterpants. "It
suggests thatta too mucha TV can stoppa da little hormones."
The phenomenon of precocious puberty — first identified in American child stars like Britney Spears who developed boobies at 10¼ — is increasing all over the western world. According to Professor Fellacio, it will not be long before girls as young as eight are begging their parents for breast reduction operations. The report was greeted with howls of protest by plastic surgeons who fear thousands of jobs could be put at risk. They could be right as the value of raw silicone fell by 1002 points this morning on the London Stock exchange.
