Let’s be clear, the TV does not cause the increase in risk of death.  The increase in risk of death is caused by time spent watching TV.  The more TV the older adults watched, the more likely they were to die from conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, flu/pneumonia, Parkinson’s disease and liver disease, the investigators found.  Compared with those who watched less than one hour of TV per day, the risk of death during the study period was 47 percent higher for those who watched seven or more hours a day, the findings showed.
