Ever find yourself watching 4 or more episodes of Game Of Thrones or another series, in a row?

Better back off binge watching!

Moneyish reports an Australian study of over 8,900 adults published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise reveals that sitting for many hours in a row and watching TV increases your risk for dying from inflammatory diseases, including Alzheimers and diabetes. Researchers learned every extra hour per day of watching TV was associated with a 12% increased risk of death.

Persons spending over 4 hours a day binge watching were at the highest risk of health issues, including kidney disease and asthma.

Recent data reveals 90% of Millennials binge-watch five hours of programming in one sitting.
