Technology leads to obesity?
OTTAWA, CANADA- Canadian medical researchers surmise that people who own a car, a computer and TV could be negatively impacting their health by becoming obese.
They say people who own all three items tend to sit more and move less.
Their findings are published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
Researchers took all kinds of data from 150-thousand people in various countries and those that owned a car, computer and T-V had a 31-percent decrease in activity.
Almost a quarter of those people reported an increase in waist size of four-inches.
The lead author of the study says this could foreshadow serious health issues in developing countries.
