 Why is Sitting Dangerous?

“After 1 hour of sitting, the production of enzymes that burn fat declines by as much as 90%. Extended sitting slows the body’s metabolism affecting things like (good cholesterol) HDL levels in our bodies. Research shows that this lack of physical activity is directly tied to 6% of the impact for heart diseases, 7% for type 2 diabetes, and 10% for breast cancer, or colon cancer.”  

Sitting Is the Smoking of Our Generation‘ 

by Nilofer Merchant, Harvard Business Review JANUARY 14, 2013

Physical inactivity has been identified as the fourth-leading risk factor for death for people all around the world, according to the World Health Organization. Prolonged sitting, meaning sitting for eight to 12 hours or more a day, increased your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 90%.”

The developing and developed worlds are both facing an obesity epidemic with their workers getting bigger, or to be more specific, fatter. As demonstrated elsewhere in this issue, the individual and societal health and economic costs of obesity and physical inactivity are enormous. There is thus a need for regional, national and global action to combat the issues, with programmes broadly divisible into children and adolescents, the workforce, active aging, healthy aging and a broad cross-cutting agenda that focuses on the built environment. Sitting will kill you, even if you exercise “

“Strength might also predict mortality because it is reduced with disease and deconditioning. For example, lower extremity arterial ischemia can cause lower muscle strength and function (13). Pain from osteoarthritis may prevent activity resulting in atrophy from disuse. Intervention studies show the potential for large improvements in strength with small increases in lean mass (14), illustrating the importance of activity and exercise. Markers of inflammation are also related to lower strength (15) and lean mass, as well as to a decline in strength (16).” Strength, But Not Muscle Mass, Is Associated With Mortality in the Health, Aging and Body Composition Study Cohort by Anne B. Newman, et al Oxford JournalsThe Journals of Gerontology: Series AVolume 61, Issue 1, Pp. 72-77.
