88% Of Adults Dine While Staring At A Screen
So many of us spend a great deal of time each day staring at screens; from computer desktops at work to smartphones or television during our free time, the average American is spending more time staring at a screen than ever before. Now, a new survey of 2,000 adults has found that a whopping 88% are so-called “zombie eaters” who stare at some type of screen while eating.

The survey, commissioned by Pretzel Crisps, aimed to shed some light on American eating habits. The results indicate that Americans are so glued to their screens, they rarely stop staring even to eat.

I’m staring at the screen reading this article. I just finished supper so it must be ok?

It's more of discipline problem addiction problem, you can carry your phone around, but can you not use it to check your Facebook, or sneak in a quick video game during a meal.

It seems sad, but when you go to a restaurant, how many people are there using their portable screens (smartphones) while sitting at the same table with people they know?
NY Post reported a few years ago that retirees watch TV for 51 hours a week; I think that was before smartphones began their climb in popularity and usefulness.
