Why doctors only want you to watch TV for an hour a day

It’s official: binge-watching is not good for your heart.

More than one in 10 cases of heart disease could be prevented if people reduced the amount of time they spend in front of the TV, a new study suggests.

Experts from the University of Cambridge said that sitting down after a big dinner and eating a snack in front of the TV increase the risk of health problems.

They suggest that more than one in 10 cases of coronary heart disease could be prevented if people watched less than an hour of television a day.

But, if that’s not possible (or just unlikely), they suggest getting up and moving to break TV-watching habits and ditch the chips and chocolates.

It adds to a growing body of evidence suggesting that watching show after show is wreaking havoc on our brains and bodies.
