Spending too much time in front of the television could increase the chances of developing fatal blood clots, according to a study published in the Journal of Thrombosis and Thrombolysis. Prolonged sitting can in some cases lead to blood clots because the normal circulation of blood through the legs and feet is impaired. "Results suggest that even individuals who regularly engage in physical activity should not ignore the potential harms of prolonged sedentary behaviours such as TV viewing," said Yasuhiko Kubota from the University of Minnesota. "Avoiding frequent TV viewing, increasing physical activity and controlling body weight might be beneficial to prevent VTE," Kubota said.

The study focused on the risk of developing common and potentially fatal blood clot in the vein called venous thromboembolism. One type of VTE is known as deep vein thrombosis, where the blood clots form in the deep veins of the legs. Another serious problem is when VTE becomes dislodged and travel through the blood stream to block another vein somewhere else in the body.
