Do you 'Netflix and chill'? Do you binge watch? Well, watch out...

This is an alarming viewpoint but should be taken with a pinch of salt. Deaths from pulmonary embolisms are rare and of the large group sampled for this research of 80,000, only 59 deaths occurred. 

This is a small enough number that any link between binge watching TV shows and death could simply be down to chance!
