Mad Men. Breaking Bad. House Of Cards. We're living in a golden age of television. And it's killing us!
According to a study published in the Journal of American Heart Association, binge watching TV is one of the worst things you can do for your body.
More than eight years of research on over 13,000 subjects suggests that just three hours of TV a day can DOUBLE the risk of an early death! Three hours! That's only like four episodes of Orange Is The New Black!
Department of Public Health at the University of Navarra chair Dr. Miguel Martinez-Gonzalez, who lead the study, says:

Scientists conducted a study and found that 45% of teens saw no problems with drinking five alcoholic drinks a day.
Said Steve Pasierb, president of The Partnership at Drugfree.org:
"You're seeing this weakness in this generation of teens' attitudes around drug and alcohol use. It's not like this generation of kids thinks they're more bulletproof than others, but they really don't see any harm in that heavy drinking."
Even though teens appear to have an unhealthy attitude towards drinking, the number of underage kids drinking is down to 35 percent last year from a high of 50 percent in 1998.
If you have kids, educate them about the dangers of binge drinking!
