    [h=1]Too Much Sitting Can Kill You, Study Suggests[/h]
    MONDAY, March 26 (HealthDay News) --
    For better health, try standing up more, a new study suggests. Those who spend 11 or more hours a day sitting are 40 percent more likely to die over the next three years regardless of how physically active they are otherwise, researchers say.

    Analyzing self-reported data from more than 222,000 people aged 45 and older, Australian researchers found that mortality risks spike after 11 hours of total daily sitting but are still 15 percent higher for those sitting between 8 and 11 hours compared to those sitting fewer than 4 hours per day.

    "The evidence on the detrimental health effects of prolonged sitting has been building over the last few years," said study author Hidde van der Ploeg, a senior research fellow at the University of Sydney. "The study stands out because of its large number of participants and the fact that it was one of the first that was able to look at total sitting time. Most of the evidence to date had been on the health risks of prolonged television viewing."

    Katika hili swala, inahitajika kuwa unafanya matembezi madogo madogo ofisini. yaani kila baada ya saa nzima au masaa mawili, unasimama, unajinyoosha na kutembea tembea kidogo humo humo ofisini.
    Hii itasaidia kuchangamsha mwili kidogo.
    Kwa mfano, mimi huwa kila baada ya saa nzima nasimama, natoka ofisini kwangu naenda ofisi nyingine kupeleka document, au kuulizia kitu fulani, au kusalimia tu, ili mradi kuweza kujinyoosha na kuchangamsha mwili kidogo.

    Sitting Too Much Could be Deadly

    Research is preliminary, but several studies suggest people
    who spend most of their days sitting are more likely to be
    fat, have a heart attack or even die.

    LONDON-
    Here's a new warning from health experts: Sitting is deadly.
    Scientists are increasingly warning that sitting for prolonged periods - even if you also exercise
    regularly - could be bad for your health. And it doesn't matter where the sitting takes place - at
    the office, at school, in the car or before a computer or TV - just the overall number of hours it
    occurs.
    Research is preliminary, but several studies suggest people who spend most of their days sitting
    are more likely to be fat, have a heart attack or even die.
    Even for people who exercise, spending long stretches of time sitting at a desk is still harmful.
    Tim Armstrong, a physical activity expert at the World Health Organization, said people who
    exercise every day - but still spend a lot of time sitting - might get more benefit if that exercise
    were spread across the day, rather than in a single bout.
    That wasn't welcome news for Aytekin Can, 31, who works at a London financial company, and
    spends most of his days sitting in front of a computer.
    "I'm sure there are some detrimental effects of staying still for too long, but I hope that being
    active when I can helps," he said. "I wouldn't want to think the sitting could be that dangerous."
    Still, in a study published last year that tracked more than 17,000 Canadians for about a dozen
    years, researchers found people who sat more had a higher death risk, independently of whether
    or not they exercised.
    "People should keep exercising because that has a lot of benefits," Ekblom-Bak said. "But when
    they're in the office, they should try to interrupt sitting as often as possible," she said.
