There are so many reasons to not remain seated. A new study by Australia's Sax Institute says sitting down for several hours a day could bring you to an early grave. Even if you already exercise.
The study followed more than 200,000 Australian adults aged 45 and older from 2006 to 2010. Its findings reported those sitting for at least 11 hours a day had a 40% higher risk of dying within the next three years than those who sat for less than four hours a day.
Exercise may have numerous health benefits, but it doesn't necessarily take away this risk. The Atlantic reported “while the death risk was much lower for anyone who exercised five hours a week or more, it still rose as these active people sat longer.”
The Atlantic also says that its estimated that the average adult spends 90% of his leisure time sitting.
“People tend to think they’re okay as long as they get their ‘dose’ of working out each day,” Mark Tremblay, obesity and activity researcher at Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, told Reuters Health. However, he says, “Getting your 30 minutes of physical activity five times a week is not insurance against chronic disease.”
