  2. “Sitting Kills”

     

    Published in the Archives of Internal Medicine (2012), a study involved 222,497 Australian adults, aged 45 and older.  Researchers compared data from the “45 and Up” Study with mortality data from early 2006 through late 2010.  Not surprisingly, parallels emerged between daily sitting time and premature death.

    **** INDIVIDUALS LOGGING 11 HOURS OR MORE OF DAILY SITTING TIME [BETWEEN WORK AND HOME] HAD THE GREATEST RISK OF EARLY DEATH.****

    This data was consistent across the sexes, age groups, body mass index categories, and even physical activity levels.

    So the bottom line is….get off your bottom.  Don’t sit, get fit!!!
