Health | Spending many hours watching TV increases the risk of heart attack, alert study | Technology and science | Sciences

A team of researchers found that people who spent many hours leisure sitting in front of the TV they had a higher risk of heart disease and death, according to a study published in the American Heart Association magazine.

They also determined that those with sedentary jobs they had no more risk than those who were more active in their jobs, which contradicts what specialists believed so far.

To reach these conclusions, the scientists analyzed the information from more than 3,500 adults in the United States who were followed for approximately 8.5 years, says the report published in the recent edition of the aforementioned magazine.

Those who initially spent more than four hours a day sitting in front of the television had 50% more likely to experience heart problems, as a heart attack or a diagnosis of heart disease, or die during the study period, compared to people who initially watched less than two hours of television a day.

However, they could not determine why sitting in front of the TV It would be worse than sitting at work, but they believe that the time of day can play an important role.

"It may be that most people tend to watch television for hours without moving, while most the workers get up from their desk frequently ", Keith Diaz, assistant professor of behavioral medicine at Columbia University and lead author of the study, told LiveScience.

"The combination of eating a big meal, like dinner and then sitting for hours could also be especially damaging"he adds.

Now the researchers plan to conduct more studies to examine why watch TV It seems to be a particularly damaging form of sitting, and if eating a large meal beforehand can be a contributing factor.
