Miguel Martinez-Gonzalez, the study’s lead author and professor and chair of the Department of Public Health at the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain, said clearly: “Our findings are consistent with a range of previous studies where time spent watching television was linked to mortality.” 13,284 young and healthy Spanish university graduates (average age 37, 60 percent women) were monitored in this research. Watching television was statistically determined as the more prevalent activity for the population with sedentary behaviors. And some previous researches suggest that half of U.S. adults are leading sedentary lives. This is why the American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, or at least 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity each week. The scientists were unable yet to find any connection between premature death and other activities like accessing the computer or driving but this is a possible theme for another research.
