Sitting Too Much Is Bad For You
Jobs often require an employee to sit down for long periods of time. Most employees, after work, spend time at home sitting down in front of the television or computer, and stay there unless they feel the need to eat or use the toilet. This defines a sedentary life – a daily routine of physical inactivity, which almost always leads to chronic diseases such as obesity, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Researchers from the National Institute for Health Research Leicester Biomedical Research Center (NIHR-LBRC) found more evidence that sitting for prolonged periods of time causes an increase in adiposity.
