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.
