Study: More Sitting, Shorter Life
A new study shows a connection between the amount of time a person spends sitting and the length of their life.
FOX News Radio’s Jane Metzler reports:
Sitting down for more than three hours a day can shave two years off your life expectancy.
Nearly 170,000 people followed for up to 14 years. Didn’t matter if they didn’t smoke or were physically active, too much sitting shortened their lives.
Dr. Peter Katzmarzyk, one of the lead researchers, says inactive leg muscles leads to trouble managing blood sugar and cardiovascular disease. So stand up when you can. The research in the online journal ‘BMJ Open’.
Oh, and watching TV for more than two hours a day can take another 1.4 years off your life.
