Watching ER: Good For Your Health?

Sitting in front of the television isn't normally seen as a way to improve your health. But a new study suggests watching TV could be good for you...if you select your programs wisely.

Researchers surveyed over 800 viewers before and after watching three episodes of the show "ER." They found ER viewers were 65 percent more likely to report behavior changes, and many even said that watching ER had a positive influence on taking care for themselves and others.

I know what you're thinking, who paid for that study, NBC? Nope, the study was funded by CDC, the Centers for Disease Control.
