Study Spotlight: Too Much Sitting Increases Mortality Risk Despite Exercise

We've talked about on TAT before about how sitting is wrecking your hips (check out the post here) and then how you can go and work to fix that (click here) but according to a recent study sitting may not only be wrecking your hips, it could be threatening your life as well.

The article talks about how a sedentary lifestyle even with exercise can significantly increase your mortality rate.  They discussed that the risk is much greater for those who exercise less but there is still some evidence that can have an effect on even moderately active people.

This was an eye opener to myself and further makes the standing desk look like an important purchase.  Find the link to the full article below.
