Simon Fraser University has come up with new research that has added further weight to the controversy over whether sitting too late is dangerous to your health. A global review of more than 100,000 people in 21 countries found that people who sit for six to eight hours every day have an extended risk of 12-13 percent, while people who sit for eight hours every day have increased it to 20 percent.

Scott Lear, a well-being science teacher at Simon Fraser University and Wee Li of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences in Beijing, published the journal ‘Jamaa Cardiology’.
After examining people for an average of 11 years, it was established that most measures of sitting time were associated with increased risk of early death and cardiovascular disease. While sitting in all countries can be problematic, it is especially the case in low-income and low-middle-income countries.
According to research, people who are more sedentary and more physically active have a higher risk – up to 50 percent – of sitting more but physically active individuals at a significantly lower risk. About 17 per cent.
“For those who sit for four hours a day, switching to half-hour sitting with practice reduced gambling by two percentage points,” Lear noted.
He said, “With only one out of every four Canadians meeting the terms of the movement, there is a real open door here for individuals to build their course of action and reduce their chances of early death and heart disease.”
Research has found a specific relationship in low-income countries, prompting researchers to estimate that sitting in high-income countries is generally associated with higher socioeconomic status and better-paying jobs.
Lear noted, “Clinicians need to take more action than sitting, because minimal cost interventions can have tremendous benefits. But doctors need to receive a message about dealing with sedation, but people need more. Evaluate their lifestyles and take their well-being seriously.”
He said, “Our study found that the combination of sitting and inaction accounted for 8.8 percent of all deaths, which is close to the contribution of smoking (10.6 percent in Lear and Li’s study).” This is a global problem. A remarkably simple solution. Setting aside time to get out of that chair is a good start.
