Family First: Sports Fan Health

In Family First: Watching the "Big Game" with friends can be fun, but is it bad for your health?

Studies have shown watching a game can help build relationships, and even launguage or problem solving skills. This is because talking about sports can be easier than politics, or other topics. When watching for strategy, your brain is engaged in the plays more.

But, there are potential dangers. Doctors recommend keeping healthy snacks on hand during games, and trying to limit alcohol. And, try not to get too stressed during important games, like the Super Bowl.
