Sitting is the New Smoking!

This past week, yet another study shines a light on the importance of standing more and sitting less.  The Annals of Internal Medicine recently published the study which not only reports how bad sitting is, but that is is directly related to risk of major disease.  Sitting is clearly the new smoking. 

​Other major news agencies have reported the same alarming findings including CBS in 2015 and CBS in 2012.  — both reporting that sitting increases the risk of death. 

While exercise helped reduce the risk of disease from sitting, it did not completely offset or reverse that risk altogether.  Bottom line -- the more you sit the higher your risk.  And the best way to deal with that is to SIT LESS.
