  • Binge-Watchers, Beware

    A recent study found that adults who watch more than three hours of TV per day may be twice as likely to die prematurely—from any cause—than those who watch an hour or less.

  • Cut Time Sitting to Extend Life

    Restricting the amount of time spent seated every day to less than three hours might boost the life expectancy of US adults by an extra two years, indicates an analysis of published research in the online journal BMJ Open. And cutting down TV viewing to less than two hours every day might extend life by almost 1.4 years, the findings suggest.
