People who watch TV for more than 4 hours a day are at a higher risk of developing blood clots, a study has found.
Researchers from the University of Bristol Medical School and others analyzed the lifestyles of 130,000 men and women over the age of 40 without a history of venous thromboembolism.
As a result of follow-up from as little as 5 years to as long as 20 years, it was found that those who watched TV for more than 4 hours a day were 35% more likely to develop venous thromboembolism than those who watched TV for less than 2 hours and 30 minutes.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) refers to two conditions. One is pulmonary embolism. Another is deep vein thrombosis, which mainly occurs in the legs.

One of the authors, Professor Setor Kunnutsor, said that sitting for long periods of time increases the risk of blood clots in the legs. If not, get up and stretch every 30 minutes.
The results of this study (Television viewing and venous thrombo-embolism: a systematic review and meta-analysis) were published by the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology and introduced by Harvard Health Publishing in the US.
