Get up stand up

New analysis by scientists at the University of Queensland suggests that extended periods of uninterrupted sitting may be more harmful than previously realized. The researchers looked at existing survey data involving almost 5,000 adult American men and women, and found a strong link between both total and average duration of sitting and markers for heart disease, including obesity. Importantly, even among people with similar total amounts of daily sitting, those who took more breaks from sitting were significantly healthier.
