TV Viewing Is Harmful In All Aspects.

1. TV Harms Our Eyes
2. IT MAKES US MENTALLY UNFIT
3. WE BECOME MORE LAZY
4. WE BECOME ADDICTED TO IT.

EAGERLY WAITING FOR AN OPPONENT

TV viewing is not harmful if we use it properly.
my opponent is saying that it harms our eyes.
but i am saying that it wont harm us if we keep at least 2.5 m distance from it.
and that too,for a limited period of time.
everything will be harmful if we overuse or misuse it.
but everything will be okey,if we use it properly.
my opponent's next argument was "it makes us mentally unfit".
can you please explain this sentence.actually how can a TV makes us mentally unfit.
because as i told you "everything will be harmful if we misuse it"
and this is the answer for all your points

you said that it does not harm your eyes if we sit within a distance of 25 meter and also gave some more suggestions.let me ask you asmall doubt ,will you yourself follow these instructions posted by you.if you feel so from the bottom of your heart then do let me do.let me add one more thing 90% of the people using spectacles are using it just becauseof their habit of watching t.v . what do you have to say about this

i think you are also using spectacles because in my comment it was 2.5m and you changed it to 25m.
offcourse i am not watching tv within a distance of 25m.
i think the percentage of the people using spectacles is only 8% or even less than that.
from this 8%, 50% may be using because of high concentration in studies,10% may be using because of headache,
the remaining 40% are those who does not follow any rules regarding watching tvs.offcourse there may be some exceptions.
you may have realised that 75% of the students who are very good in studies uses spectacles.
if you are asking me i would like to say that i am watching TVs following my rules.
now let me ask you the same question.
please post your answer in your next round

Since my opponent has forfeited this round,i dont have any points to argue.but i just want to ask that how can a non living thing harm us. Only the way we use it sometime makes it harmful. So if you use it properly it will not harm you.

i think my opponent has agreed that TV viewing is not harmful at all.
so please vote for me.
once again i want to say the same thing that if we use anything properly, following its rules and regulations there won't be anything harmful.

yes, the question should be "do the benefits outway the harm".
and this is true.
the benefits overweighs the harm.
but i made all these argument comparing both sides.
and i think we should think in a positive manner.
