A new study by the American Cancer Society finds sitting too much will likely shorten your life.
Researchers studied more than 123,000 people over a 14-year period.
They found women who sit for more than six hours a day were about 40 percent more likely to die during the course of the study, than those who sat for fewer than three hours a day.
Men were about 20 percent more likely to die in the comparison.
Also in Healthwatch, a new study in the Journal Pediatrics finds sleep problems are more common in three to five year old's who watch television after 7 pm.
Shows with violence were also linked to sleeping difficulties, but watching non-violent tv during the day didn't seem to have a negative impact.
Diabetes is on the rise worldwide according to a new study.
The report found the number of adults with the disease has more than doubled over the past three decades, jumping to roughly 347 million people.
Researchers say an aging world population and a growing obesity problem are to blame.
Being slim doesn't necessarily mean you'll have a lower risk of heart disease.
Researchers have discovered a so-called "lean gene" that's linked to having less body fat and an increased risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
According to the study, men with the gene may be more at risk because they tend to store less fat than women.
