Mostly sitting hazardous to health

The results show, the lifestyle is less active or sedentary can increase the risk of chronic diseases even though you have taken the time to exercise.

“If people spend most of his time sitting, despite exercising regularly, they remain at high risk of chronic disease. If they want to add movement in the routine throughout the day, they will feel better and avoid health problems,” says John Thyfault, assistant professor of nutrition and physiology from the University of Missouri.

In a recent study, Thyfault and his team found that those whose lifestyles changed from high activity levels (more than 10,000 steps per day) to inactive (less than 5,000 steps per day) higher risk of type 2 diabetes.

According Thyfault, activity that requires a person rarely sits like an invisible influence on someone. However, in the long run it can prevent weight gain.

In a recent article published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, the researchers argue, is less active lifestyle is a major cause of chronic diseases, like diabetes, obesity, fatty liver disease as well. Exercising regularly also may not be enough for those who sit a lot to reduce the risk of this disease.

Several studies have also shown that most of the time spent sitting can lead to risk of death.

Everyone should try to take at least 10,000 steps every day. No need to be done at once, but do 500 to 1,000 steps every few hours is fairly good,” said Scott Rector, an assistant professor of nutrition and exercise physiology from the University of Missouri.

Small changes can increase the number of steps people in their routine activities. “Try to use the stairs rather than elevators, walking toward the desk work friends than by calling them, or spend a little time for a little walk around all day,” he added.
