Kill your TV -- before it kills you!

by Gene on Jan. 13th, 2010

An Australian study shows that the more TV you watch, the greater your risk for early death, especially from cancer or heart disease. In fact, every extra hour you spend in front of the tube per day (on average) increases your risk 11%. So, get off the couch and get some exercise!

Seems like study was really more about sitting. It's not the TV or the poor programming that's killing you, it's the extended periods of butt rest. Sadly, this means that all this desk work is slicing days off my time as well.

We all know that too much tv can make you about as smart as a donkeys butt
