The 59th American Diabetes Association has shown that men watching 40 hours or more of TV a week are more than twice as likely than less frequent viewers to develop diabetes or circulatory problems. A ten-year study of 40,000 US men discovered significantly higher levels of obesity among the frequent TV viewer. Obesity and lack of exercise led to diabetes, heart and circulatory problems.
