Binge Watching = Higher Risk Of Heart Disease

A new study by the American Heart Association reveals that people, who spend more than 4 hours a day watching TV have a 50% higher risk of heart disease and early death. The study found binge-watching leads to eating larger meals and less exercise.

Researcher Jeanette Garcia says, ”TV watching occurs at the end of the day where individuals may consume their biggest meal, and people may be completely sedentary with hours of uninterrupted sitting until they go to bed. Eating a large meal and then sitting hour hours at a time could be a very harmful combination.”
