Sitting more than 3 hours per day increases your premature death rate

by Kei Chan

Sitting is the new smoking and I think this is not new to most of you.

Americans sit 13 hours per day, 86% sit all day! The long-term health impacts are a shortened life span, higher heart disease rates, higher risk of diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome (increased blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and excessive mid-body fat), higher cancer risks and neck, shoulder and back musculoskeletal problems.

Brazilian researchers analysed data suggested that just limiting sitting to less than 3 hours a day is predicted to increase a person’s life expectancy by an average of 2 months!
