So basically the MSM/SRM is killing people and has been for years. I know a few minutes of CNN or MSDNC would drive anybody’s heart rate up!

People who spend more than four hours in front of the television each day have a far higher risk of dying early than those who limit their viewing, an Australian study said Tuesday.
I wonder what is the active agent in this finding, especially for those of us in front of a computer monitor screen for four or more hours per day, and that is just at work?

"That that, you Twonky!"
I’m certain the the risk of death for humans no matter what they do is 100 percent.
I get a kick out of a radio ad for life insurance, that says something like “and you’ll get all of your money back EVEN IF YOU DON’T DIE!”
If someone never dies, I’m sure we’ll hear about it.

Actually, this is pretty interesting.
It say that even if you exercise, if you spend 4 hours in front of the tv, you are in trouble.
That’s a bit scary.

Maybe it isn't the TV, but the couch. Or the bag of cheese doodles.

"Compared to people who watch less than two hours of television per day, people who watch more than four hours per day have a 46 percent higher risk of death from all causes," researcher David Dunstan told AFP.
Strange, I thought everyone had a mortality rate of 100%.
