A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed on the local Global TV morning show here in Halifax, talking about the health impact of sedentary behaviour. It was a fun interview, and we covered a lot of the main reasons why sedentary behaviour is bad for your health. And no, the irony of going on TV to talk about the health impact of TV was not lost on me (sitting is bad for you; sitting in front of a TV is very bad for you). In particular, the McDonald’s product placement proved my point about the ubiquity of food ads on TV. I think it went well (Peter told me that I no longer look like a grad student – so mission accomplished!), so I thought I’d post it up here. Enjoy!
