The Netflix Bingers

Eric & Hannah

A Glimpse of The Future

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…

Increased Risk of Bowel Cancer

Men are 35% more likely to develop bowel cancer from sitting down for prolonged periods of time than those who stay active.

Rounded Shoulders

Sitting too long in the same position and not moving will cause the shoulders to hunch over.

Poor posture

Too much pressure on the tailbone from sitting in bad positions makes the spine lose its natural curve.

Dark Shadows

The eye area will darken and betray any lack of sleep.

Bald Patches

From lack of sunlight and Vitamin D.

Bloodshot Eyes

Staring at a screen for hours at a time tires the eyes and prevents proper blinking.

Pale Skin

Lack of sunlight leads to vitamins B-12 and D deficiencies.

Premature Ageing

High Energy Visible (HEV) light from the screen penetrates the skin and boosts enzyme MMP-1 meaning more fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging in the face.

Obesity

With too much delivery food and a lack of exercise the pounds will soon pile on.

Amputated Limbs

Binge-watching Netflix can increase the risk of diabetes by up to 30%, which ups the threat of losing limbs to amputation.

Bad Mood

Bingeing usually means you sleep less, often leading to depression and anxiety.

‘Dead-Butt Syndrome’ (Gluteal Amnesia)

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.

Varicose Veins

Poor blood circulation due to sitting down for long periods of time.

Misshapen Leg Muscles

Watching too much TV eats up time for exercise and movement, meaning the muscles go soft and lose their shape.
