Weight loss researchers in Australia verified the correlation between television viewing time and cardiac risk factors.

Weight loss researchers concluded that “[television] sitting time was detrimentally associated with waist circumference, BMI, systolic blood pressure, fasting triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, 2-h postload plasma glucose, and fasting insulin.” More importantly, the connection between television viewing time and cardiac risk factors proved to be independent of waist circumference and belly fat.
