Every hour spent watching TV raises risk of diabetes
Every hour spent watching TV raises risk of diabetes (April 6, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From Pittsburgh - A new report published in Diabetologia finds that every hour spent watching television raises risk of diabetes. Researchers studied over 3,200 overweight US adults who were at least 25 years of age. Participants were put in either an intervention or control group; the intervention group consisted of increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary time. They found the intervention group had the greatest reduction in mean time spent watching TV and sitting, compared to the control groups on placebo, or metformin. They also found that, among all treatment groups, every hour spent watching TV raised risk of diabetes by 3.4%.
