Day 2 @ OP: TV Kills

2nd day in the series is  up: Can Sitting Too Much Kill YOU?

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.
