Watching TV risky

Watching a lot of television every day may increase the risk of dying from a blood clot in the lungs, according to new research. A lung blood clot, medically known as a pulmonary embolism, usually begins as a clot in the leg or pelvis as a result of inactivity and slowed blood flow.  If the clot breaks free, it can travel to the lungs and become lodged in a small blood vessel. The researchers asked 86,024 participants, aged between 40 to 79 years on how many hours they spent on watching television.
