Study shows adults that watch more TV have stiffer arteries

Posted: Updated:

A new study shows the longer adults spend watching television the stiffer their arteries may become – which could lead to heart disease down the road.

Researchers monitored the TV viewing habits of nearly 400 men and women in their 30s.

They found people with the stiffest arteries spent about 20 minutes more a day watching TV than people with more elastic arteries.

Study authors also say physical activity did not appear to offset the adverse effects related to watching TV.
