    Good for your 1-year-old, not so much. Technically, that’s still a matter of opinion, sort of: studies on television watching in infancy have been mostly limited to retrospective analyses. With these kinds of studies, we can make plenty of associations between watching TV and delayed development, but we can’t prove a causative relationship between the two.

    And, certainly, so long as I wasn’t identifiable. If I wasn’t identifiable to myself, then I’d certainly not have any objections at all.

    Thanks to all for the kind words, and for reading.

    Shinga, I’ll put in a second plug for the post you’ve linked to. It probably belongs in GR itself in the sense that it highlights the limitations of data gathering and analysis as we know it and makes some not-unreasonable speculation about the direction of clinical trials from here on out.
