A new study finds that people who spend too much time sitting in front of their TV or computer have a shorter lifespan. Researchers say if you spend more than four hours in front of the TV, you double your risk of a heart attack. This is only made worse when you consider that most people spend their day just sitting behind a desk and then head home to sit in front of the TV and computer.
It turns out, there is a correlation between the amount of passive sitting we do, and the levels of C-reactive protein in our bodies, which is a predictor of inflammation and high cholesterol.
Compromise…Perhaps a treadmill in front of your TV or computer would be a healthier alternative?! Get up and move…Save your life!
