People Who Spend Leisure Sitting Die Soonest
It seems that people who spend at least 6 hours of their daily leisure time sitting died sooner than people who sat less than 3 hours.
And those who both sit a great deal and don't exercise much ran even higher risks of death.
RTs might want to share this information with clients who may need to be motivated to get up and to exercise.
The study, by A.V. Patel, appeared in the July early online edition of the American Journal of Epiemiology.
