|Abstract: ||• Sedentary behavior — sitting time — has long been thought to be a risk factor for pediatric obesity, especially through television and other screen viewing, with claims made for clear and causal links.
• A closer look at the literature reveals a complex picture of statistically significant but small associations for screen time and adiposity in youth, but small or no associations for total sedentary time assessed with accelerometers.
• Current evidence does not support a causal association.
• Results concerning obesity may depend on a variety of mediating, moderating, and confounding factors including light and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, diet, and sleep.
• Reducing sedentary behavior in youth probably is sensible, but we propose that the field is more complex than sometimes recognized.|
