Sitting Can Kill You Even if You Exercise
A recent study (Annals of Internal Medecine, January 2015) found that sedentary behavior increases our chances of getting a disease or a condition that will kill us prematurely, even if we exercise.
They adjusted their data to incorporate the amount someone exercises and found that the sitting we typically do in a day still outweighs the benefit we get from exercise because prolonged sitting, meaning sitting for eight to 12 hours or more a day, increased your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 90%.
The studies showed sedentary behavior can lead to death from cardiovascular issues and cancer as well as cause chronic conditions such as Type 2 diabetes.
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.
The key is to move and increase blood flow throughout the day which is what The Infinity Movement is designed to do.
