Watching too much TV causes inflammation

The research indicated for the first time that the C-reactive protein (CRP) and fibrinogen levels may be responsible for more than 15 percent of the correlation between the risk of death and prolonged TV viewing – this is confirmed by laboratory tests.

High CRP versus heart disease

Several studies have proven that with high CRP, the risk of heart attack is increased. One American professional society considers 2 milligrams/liter to be the limit value, a CRP level that is permanently higher than this increases the risk of developing heart disease. If this lab result is after a heart attack or cardiology intervention, it may be necessary to strengthen the therapy.
