It might be linked to stories on the internet about people dying sitting playing war of warcraft for 18+ hours straight.

Smoking increases your risk of death.
Too much sun increases your risk of death.
Too much eating increases your risk of death.
Not enough eating increases your risk of death.
Cancer increases your risk of death.
Not knowing how to swim increases your risk of death.
Too much alcohol increases your risk of death.
Trying to walk across increases a Hwy your risk of death.
Swimming with sharks increases your risk of death.
Drinking only liquids increases your risk of death.
Not wearing warm clothes during the winter increases your risk of death.
Ignoring your shots increases your risk of death.
Playing with knives increases your risk of death.
Too much sex increases your risk of death.
Not enough sex increases your risk of death.
Setting your house on fire increases your risk of death.
Watching too much TV increases your risk of death.

A lot of things can increase your risk of death, yet the average life span of a human being is rising.

If you run several miles a day you might negate "computer death"....

Or kill yourself trying.....

Playing in sports can raise the raise the risk of injury, and death. Just look at the teens dropping from heart attacks lately.

Don't we just love statistics?

That statistic is wrong... You shouldn't just accept everything you read/see.
Although, that is about the stat that it increases your chance of having a heart attack(you also have a higher chance of blood clots) by, not "death" and obviously not instantly(continuously)

A lot of people are dismissing you, so, contrary soul that I am, I'm going to agree.


In point of fact I do agree that too much computer time is bad for MY health at least.

In General for all of us:

1) TV watching slows down your metabolism even more than sleeping.
2) Pro-longed sitting compromises your leg circulation. It MAY trigger deep vein thrombosis but even if it doesn't you may notice numbness, swelling, discolouration and possibly even feel lightheaded upon rising.
3) The seated position puts great stress on the spine. Especially if one tries to lift or bend.
4) Pro-longed habitual sitting in a properly supportive chair will encourage all kinds of muscles to turn off and become... lax. And bad posture or poor support will cause only some to turn off resulting in structural imbalances that can hurt you later when you attempt to pursue physical activities.

For Me personally I find:
1) Sitting idly encourages uncontrolled snacking, usually of junk food and energy drinks.
2) Swelling, numbness and/or purple feet.
3) Increased lethargy and mental fatigue
4) Symptoms of withdrawal if habitual long term computer use is involuntarily curtailed (ie a computer glitch, or power failure)
5) Performance issues at work: Habitual lateness (just one more level!)
Disorganization
Inability to perform at my best due to 2) and 3) above and (6) below
6) A direct correlation between the number of hours per week I spend on the computer, and my average blood sugar for the week. (more hours = Higher blood sugars= circulation damage, kidney damage, Fatigue, Mental Fog, Emotional instability.)
7) Every hour I spend on the computer is an hour I don't spend hanging out with my friends live and in 3d, playing paintball, doing my taxes (or laundry or housecleaning), going to the Gym, or just soaking up the sun.

Some solutions I have found.
1) rationing: I set time limits for my computer use. They vary from week to week but I try to track and limit my weekly usage.
2) abstinence: I define windows of time where I will refuse to turn on my computer. Sometimes I go days computerless just as an exercise of will and self care.
3) Physical Care: I sit on a pilates ball instead of in a chair. Make a point of getting up and stretching every 60 to 90 minutes and deliberately change position while sitting.
4) Healthy Snacking: If I eat/drink in front of the computer it is premeasured snacks and drinks of a healthy nature (primarily green veggies) and lots of water.

Your Mileage May Vary
