Don't Just Sit There

From Harvard Health Publications | By Julie Corliss


Excerpt: 
“According to a study about the health hazards of sitting too much, more than half of the average person's waking hours are spent sitting: watching television, working at a computer, commuting, or doing other physically inactive pursuits. But all that sitting could be sending us to an early grave-even those folks who exercise up to an hour a day, say the Canadian researchers who did the study.

The health hazards of not moving much are wide ranging, says Dr. Joanne Foody, who directs the Cardiovascular Wellness Center at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital. ‘While we often think of the dangers of inactivity in terms of worsening cardiovascular health, there are a myriad of negative effects,’ she says. The current study documented higher rates of type 2 diabetes, cancer, and cancer-related deaths in very sedentary people. An unrelated study has linked more sitting and less activity with an increased risk of developing dementia.”
