The study was also unusual in that it looked at people in post-adolescence and early adulthood, he added, and it also focused on a specific type of sedentary behavior, said Dr. Robert Scott III, assistant professor of internal medicine at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine and senior staff cardiologist at Scott & White in Temple, Texas.

The researchers unearthed three factors that, together, explained 57 percent of the risk difference between those who watched more TV and those who watched less.

One had to do with metabolism -- triglycerides, HDL ("good") cholesterol, body mass index, waist circumference and blood pressure -- which explained 28 percent of the variance.

The second was an inflammatory component including levels of (inflammation-linked) C-reactive protein, which explained 16 percent of variance. The third component involved total cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol, which explained 13 percent of the variance.
