the ONA take:
According to a study published in the journal Diabetologia, researchers from the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, have found that each hour spent watching television daily increases the risk of developing diabetes by 3.4%.For the study, researchers analyzed data from participants in the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), which included 3,234 overweight adults.
Results showed that those who made lifestyle changes had a reduction in self-reported TV watching time and the largest reduction in time spent watching TV and sitting at work.
The researchers also found that the risk of diabetes increased about 3.4% for each hour spent watching TV each day. The findings suggest that future lifestyle interventions should emphasize less sitting.
