Gentlemen Get Moving
Timeless Fitness Tip
Lack of activity, especially watching too much television, can put men at higher risk for type 2 diabetes.
A ten year study that tracked the health and TV time of nearly 38,000 males between the ages of 40 and 75 found that men who spent three to five hours a day watching television doubled their risk of developing diabetes.
The really devoted couch potatoes - those who watched six hours a day or more - tripled their chances compared to those who only watched one hour.
Men who watched the most television were also less likely to exercise and more likely to be heavier, eat more saturated fat and drink more alcohol.
Type 2 diabetes happens when the body no longer uses insulin effectively.
