Sedentary children watching too much tv, playing games at risk for diabetes and cancer

The cancer timebomb: Parents sentencing their children to disease by letting them sit in front of TV and computer screens for hours on end, warn experts


• Children should only be allowed two hours screen time a day, doctors warn
• They are 'increasingly concerned' about children being too inactive
• Those who spend hours playing games, surfing internet and watching TV risk developing diabetes, cancer and heart disease

Millions of parents are putting their children at risk of cancer because they let them spend too long sitting – either watching TV, playing computer games or surfing the internet.

Doctors have today delivered a stark warning that a generation of youngsters is also at risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes because of their sedentary lifestyles.

Even more worrying is that children who do exercise regularly are still at risk, because long periods of inactivity could still lead to obesity.



Physical activity recommendations for people in the UK were updated in July 2011, as follows:

UNDER 5'S: After beginning to walk, under fives should be physically active for at least 180 minutes per day

AGE 5-18: At least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day. Vigorous intensity activities that strengthen muscle and bone - e.g. impact exercise such as running/netball/dancing/skipping - should be carried out on at least three days a week

ADULTS 19+: At least 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity over a week, in bouts of 10 minutes or more. Physical activity to improve muscle strength should be carried out on at least two days per week.
