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.
I bet if you spent those 4 hr. “in front of the TV” on an exercise bike or treadmill, the adverse health effects would go away. Of course, your brain would still atrophy from watching the MSM or PBS.
I wonder, too, if it isn’t the sitting rather than the TV that is the problem.
Two guys have a site called Obesity Panacea, and its focus is primarily the health hazards associated with prolonged inactivity. They cite a study that says the same thing - exercising for an hour or so a day and spending the rest of the day sedentary is not healthy. Standing is better than sitting, and movement, even low-level, is best.
So, maybe I should go clean my house instead of sitting here goofing off here at Free Republic. ;-)
