TV viewing linked to cancer
Recent research has linked prolonged sitting while viewing TV to a raised risk of developing colorectal cancer.
The findings were independent of the level of exercise a person performed or their body mass index (BMI).
The researchers behind the new study note that young-onset colorectal cancer is usually more aggressive than colorectal cancer that strikes later in life and is likely to have some distinct biological features.
Also, by the time diagnosis takes place, the cancer is usually more advanced, resulting in poorer rates of survival.
