Prolonged sitting may raise the risk of early death, but new research suggests that this risk could be offset by getting up and moving every half an hour.
A study analyzing trends in global physical activity finds that health risks associated with sitting for 8 hours can be eliminated by 1 hour of exercise.
A new study contradicts previous research by suggesting that sitting for long periods does not raise the risk of all-cause mortality for people who exercise regularly.
Could it be this simple? A new study suggests replacing sitting with walking for 1 hour each day could reduce the risk of early death by up to 14%.
New research finds a link between moving and reduced risk of death in the over-50s, and suggests that replacing sitting time with activity may help older adults live longer.
