We believe that sitting around and doing nothing all day is unhealthy. It just makes common sense, but what if I told you it has been proven?
In a recent 14-year study, it was found that sitting for long periods of time can raise the mortality rate of a person. This Study started with 53,000 men and 70,000 women. At the start of the study all of the people were disease-free.
Over the span of this study, 11,300 of the men died and 8,000 women. Isn’t that startling? They found that sitting for more that six hours a day will raise the mortality rate of a person. More so for men than for women.
I found this information to be very interesting. I knew that being sedentary was bad, but I didn’t know just how bad it really was or really could be.
I just thought I would let you know about this study and how sitting too much may affect you.
