Long hours of TV viewing kills!

Are you in your sweet seventeen? or 25, 48, 63, 81? Irrespective of your age, you run the high risk of death if you watch TV for more than 4 hours a day! This is the finding of researchers in Australia!

By nature human body is used to frequent physical movement of limbs and flexing of muscles. With the technological advancement and social changes, modern life style has improved. As a result opportunity for self exercising and continuous correction of energy expenditure have been jeopardized.

Researchers observe that these TV addicts simply shift their position in their chairs a couple of times in a day no other movement. Sitting for long hours has unhealthy influence on blood sugar and blood fat and these couch potatoes are highly prone to cardio vascular disease irrespective of the fact that they don't smoke, no high blood pressure or no unhealthy diet.

Senior citizens, please get rid of TV watching and save your life! Please propagate this message to your near and dear for a better healthy life of our younger generation too!

  1. We don't have television, but I'm sure blogging doesn't help either. That's why I hit the treadmill everyday.

    Have a terrific day. :)
