children who have a television in their bedroom are at a higher risk for obesity.

a new study of over 350 kids found children with a bedroom TV ... had more fat mass and a higher waist circumference compared to their peers who didn't have one.

a bedroom television was also linked to higher rates of diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol.

researchers say these kids tend to watch more t-v and are more likely to skip more healthy activities -- like exercise, sleep and family meals.
