If watching TV will kill you, if you do it for four hours a day or more, as Aussie researchers warn, what about sitting at the computer?
The researchers tracked the TV viewing habits of 8,800 adults and found that every hour spent in front of the television each day increased the risk of death from all causes.
While the study focused specifically on television watching, the findings suggest that any prolonged sedentary behaviour, such as sitting at a desk or in front of a computer, may pose a risk to one’s health.
So excuse me, but I've been sitting at this desk for years. I'm off for a walk before I keel over.
