Television kills

Written by The Sarcasmist on June 16, 2011 - Comments (6)

Television kills! And not just when it falls on people.

A new study states that people who spend more hours watching TV are more likely to die, or develop diabetes and heart disease. Even watching two hours of television per day has a significant impact on these statistics.

“The message is simple. Cutting back on TV watching is an important way to reduce sedentary behaviours and decrease risk of diabetes and heart disease,” said Frank Hu, the research lead at the Harvard School of Public Health.

I wonder if the study took into account all the TV watching that goes on at gyms as people run on treadmills and elliptical trainers. How bad is the prevalence of diabetes and heart disease among those viewers? It’s probably higher since they are not only watching TV but also straining their body by doing exercise.


  1. Um, by that logic though, reading also kills

  2. whew, sure am glad they didn’t say anything about all the hours on fb!!lol

  3. Is this one of those things that fall under the “common sense” category?

  4. I don’t actually watch tv anymore, I should be really healthy! I’m so glad I don’t have to worry about sedentary behavior now that I’m sitting at my desk on a computer all day.

  5. These researchers need to find something else better to do with their time. No one cares about these types of studies. If you are going to do this, try to cure cancer instead. That’s a little more important.
