Too much sitting raises risk of death, even if you exercise
from CBS News
Beware, couch potatoes: The evidence is piling up that too much sitting can take a serious toll on your health. A new study links sitting for prolonged periods of time to increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer and early death — even in people who get regular exercise. "Even if you do a half an hour or an hour or of exercise every day doesn't give us the reassurance that sitting for the other 23 hours is ok. In fact, it's not," said Dr. David Alter of the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, one of the authors of the study.
