Health Buzz: TV Raises Risk of Health Problems, Early Death - US News and World Report

Health Buzz: TV Raises Risk of Health Problems, Early Death - US News and World Report | BlablaDoctor | Scoop.it

Too Much TV May Spell Heart Disease, Diabetes, Early Death : Life as a couch potato could be deadly. For every two hours of daily television time, the risk of diabetes increases by 20 percent over 8½ years, the risk of heart disease rises by 15 percent over a decade, and the chances of dying from any cause jump 13 percent over 7 years. That's according to a new analysis of eight major studies (including more than 200,000 people) from the Harvard School of Public Health, published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The findings suggest that for every 100,000 people, cutting back on TV time by two hours a day could prevent 176 new cases of diabetes, 36 cases of fatal cardiovascular disease, and 104 premature deaths every year. Americans spend an average of five hours a day watching TV, which often leads to unhealthy eating and inactivity, the researchers said. "It's true that people who watch a lot of TV differ from those who watch less, especially in terms of diet and physical activity levels," study author Frank Hu told Reuters. "The combination of a sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet and obesity creates a perfect breeding ground for type 2 diabetes and heart disease."
