Presentation TranscriptInstead of spending our leisure time engaging in active pursuits, we simulate activity through by playing video games. We deal with our stress by watching turning off our brains in front of the TV instead of using them to accomplish something.And work. Work has probably seen the greatest shift over the years. We effectively started chaining people to their computer desks. We've even made sure that garbage men never have to leave the drivers seat. But why does this matter. It matters because these things we spend the majority of our lives doing harm us. Research has shown that watching too much TV is significantly related to incidence of cardiovascular disease and premature death.Even driving in your car is related to premature death. New research indicates that if you're inactive and spend more than 10hr a week in a car then you have 2.5 time greater change of dying prematurely. But really, what are TV and commuting really? They are proxies for sitting. And this is where the latest gains in the health research field have been. Recently, sitting has been independently linked to dying prematurely. What this means is regardless of how active you are, your age, your gender, yaddayaddayadda, the more you sit, the more likely you are to suffer from negative health related consequences.
