Watching Too Much TV “Increases Risk of Heart Disease”

Women with PCOS are already at increased risk of heart disease. And that risk grows from watching too much television, a new study has suggested.
 
Every type of sedentary behavior, such as driving and sitting in front of a TV or computer screen for lengthy periods, poses significant health risks, Australian researchers concluded.
 
They found that people who spent more than four hours a day sitting in front of the TV were 80% more likely to die from a cardiovascular-related disease than those who watched less than two hours.
 
The researchers tracked the lifestyle habits of 8,800 adults and the deaths of sedentary people over the past seven years and found inactive people were also moderately more at risk of dying from cancer.
 
The study’s lead author Professor David Dunstan said: “For many people, on a daily basis they simply shift from one chair to another – from the seat in the car to the chair in the office to the chair in front of the television.
 
“Even if someone has a healthy body weight, sitting for long periods of time still has an unhealthy influence on their sugar and blood fats,” added Professor Dustan, who recommends people take up activity and exercise instead of sitting for long periods.
