No, there are not fat waves emanating from the television screen. But one of the keys to helping your body manage sugars is exercise. Researchers in Norway have now produced a study showing that children and adolescents who watch the most TV are the most likely to have trouble processing glucose.
Average blood glucose is recommended to be at 7%; children/adolescents watching TV less than one hour a day already exceed that at 8.2% over time. It went up from there. Two hours/8.4%; three hours/8.7%, four hours/8.8% and over four hours/9.5%. Scientists said the lack of exercise is a factor, and it's aggravated by the tendency to snack while watching TV.
