Housecall for Health: Deadly Sitting Dangers

Exercising could extend your life and well being, but it might not be enough if you spend too long sitting down.

FOX’s Colleen Cappon explains in today’s “Housecall for Health”:

Sitting all day isn’t just bad for your waistline, new research suggests it could be fatal.  A study from Australian scientists says spending too much time at a desk or in front of the TV may increase your death risk.

Data shows that people who sit at least 11 hours a day are 40% more likely to die prematurely.  Experts warn if you sit all day, getting the recommended amount of exercise still isn’t insurance against chronic disease.
