Warning to kids: Reading Hurts

As I have said many, many times – reading sucks. Now doctors are (finally) agreeing.

Children spending hours upon hours reading (gross!) are reporting neck pain, sore eyes, headaches, and other symptoms.

“Two patients read the book lying prone, and the third propped the book on her legs and rested her head on a pillow,” wrote Dr Bennett, of Washington, DC.

“In all cases, the pain resolved one to two days after the patient had finished the book,” Dr Bennett wrote.

There you have it – further proof that reading is bad for you. Remember – movies good, reading bad.

  1. We can play “Point, Counterpoint” on this, but it’s useless really. You wouldn’t even be able to read my opinion.
