Think What Your Kids Watch on TV Doesn't Make A Difference?

Think again.
Teenagers who watch Sex in the CityFriends and other TV shows featuring sex scenes and discussions of sex are far more likely to get pregnant or get someone else pregnant than their peers, a new study has found...
“We don’t think that [TV] is necessarily more significant than some of the family and neighbourhood factors that can lead to teen pregnancies. But even when we removed all the other factors, we still saw a compelling link between a high exposure to sexual content on television and teen pregnancies,” Dr Chandra said.

I read this study, too. Isn't this kind of a "duh"? It's like expecting that what you eat won't affect your health
