Think your morning exercise routine will counteract all the sitting you do each day? Think again! A large meta-analysis of 47 studies found increased sedentary time was associated with significantly increased risk for all-cause mortality, cardiovascular and cancer mortality–independent of regular exercise. Cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes incidence was higher also. Increasing exercise blunted, but did not eliminate, these excess risks.
PositiveTip: One hour of physical activity per day is not an excuse to sit the rest of the day!
