Two hours of TV a day increases chances of dying before 65

*** begin quote ***

The activity – or rather the inactivity – raises the odds of developing Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, say scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health in the US.

They believe television compromises health in two ways.

Firstly, it gets in the way of more healthy pastimes – those that involve physical movement.

Secondly, people tend to consume more junk food and drink while viewing.

*** end quote ***

Hmmm, will I make it?
