Watching TV shortens your lifespan

Uh-oh. According to the LA Times, “Australian researchers find that each hour a day spent in front of television is linked with an 18% greater risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and an 11% greater risk of all causes of death.”

No word yet about YouTube or Hulu. Get exercising!

(And I’m just imagining the teaser for the local news: “Tonight! A special report! How watching TV can kill you! And the weekend weather. Stay tuned after the 4-hour premiere of ’24’ for News at 9.”)
