Sitting Too Long Will Kill You

by DannyGallagher   June 24, 2011 at 6:00PM  |  Views: 1,052

Are you sitting down right now? Then get the hell up! Don't you know you are slowly killing yourself?

A new study from the American Journal of Epidemiology found that people who sit for more than six hours a day dramatically increase their risk of early death, 37 percent more for women and 18 percent more for men over a 13-year period.

Mind you, that includes people who still work out regularly during their non-sitting hours. Those who didn't have a regular exercise regime had significantly higher chances of dying, 94 percent for women and 48 percent for men.

So stop sitting there already. Get up and go outside and play. Take a walk around the block. Do some push-ups for god's sake, except, of course, after you've read and consumed everything that Spike.com has to offer.
