A heads-up for anyone who likes to binge watch television shows. Turns out, watching your favorite programs for hours on end could be killing you.

A recent study out of Australia linked binge-watching to an increased risk of dying from inflammatory diseases like Alzheimer's and Diabetes.

Another study by the University of Michigan found binge watching TV shows may be detrimental to your sleep, with binge watchers feeling more fatigued than those who didn't watch show, after show, after show.
