Parents may want to take the television out of their teenagers' bedrooms.

A new study shows teens who have a TV in their room tend to have poorer diet and exercise habits than peers who do not have a TV in their bedroom. Also these teens tend to have lower grades in school.

Researchers say parents need to resist pressure from their kids to have a TV in their room.
