9 Ways to Live Longer #3 Getty Images

                  

Turn off the TV

Too much time in front of the boob tube can take a serious toll on your health. In fact, a 2010 study found that people who watched four or more hours a day were 46% more likely to die from any cause than people who watched less than two hours a day.

Even cutting back a little can help; each additional hour you watch increases your overall risk of dying by 11% and dying from heart disease by 18%.

Do you watch much TV?

I'm wondering if it's the tv that's the problem or the inactivity die to sitting and watch tv.

I agree with you!
I used to watch t.v. and do an hour on the elliptical.  That can't be unhealthy, lol!
