Other than the very committed, arguably few of us are going to emerge looking better from CV-19 lockdown than when we went into it.
And if you’ve spent the past few months slumming it on the couch in a Netflix binge frenzy then a new study might have you reconsidering activating that gym membership again.
The British study was oddly conducted by gambling site Online Gambling with the aim of predicting what the average Brit would look like in 20 years’ time if they continued to binge on Netflix shows.
It came up with some 3D modelling of two average Brits – it named Hannah and Eric – that showed both suffered from obesity, premature ageing, baldness and bloodshot eyes caused by their indulgent viewing habits.
The study also found that too much Netflix could lead to “dead butt syndrome” which is a gluteal amnesia that occurs from “sitting for too long puts persistent pressure on the pelvic region, which damages your glutes – causing backache, and pain in the hip region and ankles.”
According to its website, Online Gambling “empowers gamblers to beat the odds with trustworthy and impartial reviews, guides and news. We are the leading independent comparison site for sportsbooks and online casinos.”
So, it’s not entirely certain why a gambling body decided to pick on Netflix, but it also included these stats below:
A spokesperson for Online Gambling said of the study: “We conducted a study on the impact that binging Netflix has on your health.
“We used our research to show you what you could look like if you don’t change your habits. From obesity and posture damage to premature ageing and bloodshot eyes, these are just some of the nasty effects this unhealthy lifestyle could cause.
“We’ve created 3D models to show you up close and personal all the bodily damage of a Netflix binger. Let us warn you, it’s not a pretty sight. “This could be you if you keep letting that next episode play on automatically…,” the spokesperson said.
