Couch potatoes who can’t stop watching TV now have the perfect get-out – it’s all in their genes. A large-scale UK study suggests that some people are simply hard-wired to sit and watch television. Those who watch more than the average 2 hours 48 minutes a day have genetic quirks in common – and so do those who spend a lot of leisure time in front of their computer or who drive for long periods. Researchers asked 422,218 people aged 40 to 69 how many hours a day they watched TV. They found 145 genetic variations for watching more than the average viewer.
