New government statistics show, only 27-percent of kids ages 12-15 meet the recommended limit of two hours or less of TV plus computer use daily.

This is according to the 2012 data analyzed by the National Center for Health Statistics. Just less than 2-percent reported no daily TV viewing, and 9-percent reported no computer use.

Excessive screen-time behaviors have been linked to high blood pressure and obesity.
