Televison-Diabetes/Obesity Connection

 


"The number of hours of television watched per day is associated with increased obesity rates among both children and adults and with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes and gallstones.

 

"This association is likely attributable both to reduced physical activity and to increased consumption of foods and beverages high in calories, which are typically those promoted on television."
