Excessive TV-watching May Raise the Risk of Colorectal Cancer in Men
A new study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, reveals that men who used to binge-watch TV-shows may have the higher risk of developing colorectal cancer.
For their study, a team of researchers analyzed data from UK Biobank, a health database of approximately 500,000 men and women in the United Kingdom. The scientists gathered data on how many hours each subject spent in sedentary activities such as TV-watching or using a computer daily.
Having analyzed the received results, the scientists concluded that men who watched TV at least 4 hours a day had a 35% greater risk of developing colorectal cancer than men who watched TV for 1 hour a day or less. Also, the researchers found that men who were engaged in higher levels of physical activity had 23% lower risk of developing colon cancer.
