Too much TV can kill you

Here is what the study says: each hour spent watching TV is linked with an 18 percent greater risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, an 11 percent greater risk of all causes of death and a 9 percent increased risk of death from cancer.

For people who watched more than four hours of TV a day, there was an 80 percent greater risk of death from cardiovascular disease and a 46 percent higher risk of all causes of death.

Here is the newspaper article.

Here is the abstract of the study.
