Surprising Obesity Cause: Work-Life Balance and Too Much TV

Esher, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 22, 2011 -- "An interesting new British study has discovered that higher indoor temperatures during the winter might be contributing to the rising rates of obesity in the United States and other developed countries." Says Kirsten Whittaker, editor of the DHB.

While research into the environmental causes of obesity has focused a lot on diet and exercise, other environmental factors, including the temperature indoors during the winter months has an impact on this ever-growing health problem.

It is what we all want... enough time to spend with the people (or activities) that matter most to us, and an acceptable level of work to meet our financial and ego needs. In short an effective work-life balance. A balance that very few working adults are able to achieve... especially in an economy where layoffs at work threaten security. The DHB offers 7 top tips to help you achieve your work-life balance.

Americans are in for a surprise... we might assume our much-discussed health care system would ensure us a long life, yet a new report suggests otherwise. Lifespan is not increasing as fast in the U.S. as it is in other developed nations according to a report from the National Research Council, a branch of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences.

Average lifespan may be effected by spending too much time in front of the TV or at the computer. According to a recent British study it might increase your risk of heart disease, a well-known factor in early death.

Another habit that will help you into an early grave is smoking. If you smoked early in life... before you got pregnant, your risk of developing breast cancer may be modestly higher according to research that adds new evidence to the case against smoking and cancer of the breast.
