Your Binge TV Habit Could Be Bad for Your Health
A new study finds a link between too much television and an early death
It's not the sitting that's the problem -- sitting while driving or using a computer didn't have the same death association. It was watching TV. The researchers looked at data from more than 13,000 adults and followed them for more than eight years. People who watched two hours of television a day had a 40 percent higher risk of death than those who watched an hour of television or less a day. And those who watched three or more hours of television a day, the risk of death was twice as high.
