HEALTH IMPLICATIONS OF READING
Reading a book may make your eyes feel blurry, and under stress. Your body can get sick from just sitting down and not moving.
There are no disadvantage of reading.....
The vast majority of people believe that if
it is in a book it must be right and correct. Some feel the same way
about newspapers and the internet. Just because something has been put
down into words on some media, that does not mean it is accurate.

Also, books and other printed media take up lots of room, and need to be
stored carefully to avoid deteriorization and fire hazards. They must
also be disposed of at some point. They use up natural resources and
energy in their production.
It's only fair to offer some
advantages for the sake of balance. Printed media do offer tangible
evidence that a given work or point of view was at least being
considered at a given time. Printed media are of course not guaranteed
to be more correct or accurate. But in printed form it is easier, I
think, to hold authors and publishers accountable for the materials they
produce. Electronic media can seem so ephemeral to those of us who grew
up with print. Electronic media can be so easily modified, with little
possibility of knowing by whom or why.
Nothing takes the place of sitting in a comfortable chair, with a real
printed book that you can read and flip through, re-read favorite
passages, turn pages.... Electronic media are important. They are here
to stay. I hope that people will also see that the same can be said for
books and other printed media.
