The answer is yes. But this was the alarming one – death by television:
These findings linking sedentary behaviour with poor health are far from isolated. For example, a similar longitudinal study from Australia reports that each hour of daily television viewing is associated with an 11% increase in the risk of all-cause mortality regardless of age, sex, waist circumference, and physical activity level.
I’m feeling quite superior right now, since I’m not much of a TV person. But heaven help me if ever they ever do a study on the dangers of reading.
