How Sitting Too Long Is Killing You (Video)
(N.Morgan) In a recent study conducted by Brazilian researchers in which they analyzed data from 54 countries that found sitting for more than three hours every day has been linked to 3.8 percent of deaths from all causes.
On the other hand the researchers said limiting sitting time to less than three hours a day would increase a person’s life expectancy by an average of 0.2 years − or more than two months.
The study is another addition to growing evidence that too much sitting is a serious health threat and that even regular exercise may not be enough to counter the harmful effects of prolonged sitting, the researchers stated.
Their report was published online in advance of the August print issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
The study researchers estimated the effects of less time spent sitting, regardless of moderate to vigorous physical activity, reports WebMd.com.
Even a modest, 10 percent reduction in sitting time — for instance, 30 fewer minutes a day — could have an immediate impact, the researchers said.
“Bolder changes [for instance, 50 percent decrease or two fewer hours] would represent at least three times fewer deaths versus the 10 percent or 30-minute reduction scenarios,” lead investigator Leandro Rezende said in a journal news release.
Rezende is with the department of preventive medicine at the University of Sao Paulo School of Medicine, in Brazil.
Despite the growing body of research showing the dangers of too much sitting, it’s difficult to get people to make changes, the researchers added.
“Although sitting is an intrinsic part of human nature, excessive sitting is very common in modern societies,” Rezende said.
Labor-saving devices, long commutes and homes in areas that lack support for active lifestyles contribute to the problem, he added.
