Sitting for a long time leads to early death

"We need to be mindful of moving frequently throughout the day in addition to exercising". "The longer the better, the more intense the better", said Diaz. "You have to do more".

You may want to stand up for this story. (Most people wore the device for at least six or seven days, Diaz told me in an interview this morning.) Then the team retrieved the devices, crunched the stored data, and determined how often the study subjects actually got off of their butts during that period and for how long-whether they were at home, at work, or someplace else.

To understand the relationship between sedentary behavior and early death, Diaz and his colleagues at Columbia, NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and other institutions turned to the REasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) project, a study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.

The participants were required to use hip-mounted accelerometers to measure their sedentary time.

And that risk for an early death isn't offset by exercising, according to ABC2 News.

In multivariable-adjusted analysis by quartile of total sedentary time, longer time spent sitting was associated with higher risk for all-cause mortality: HR 1.22 for Q2 versus Q1 (95% CI 0.74-2.02), HR 1.61 for Q3 versus Q1 (95% CI 0.99-2.63), and HR 2.63 for Q4 versus Q1 (95% CI 1.60-4.30; P for trend 0.001).

Exactly how prolonged sitting might be related to an increased risk of early death isn't known, he added. Since too much sitting makes our muscles inactive, the blood sugar in the body is not utilized.

Christian couple sue Church School over transgender issue
A six-year-old is not really able to, does not have the mental capacity to work out those kind of things. But we also believe in the goodness of God's created pattern of male and female.

And Hampsey says moving around also gets the mind working.

"Accumulation of large volumes of sedentary time is a hazardous health behavior regardless of how it is accumulated", wrote the authors of the study.

Dr. David Alter is an associate professor of medicine at the University of Toronto.

"Our findings suggest this one behavior change could reduce your risk of death", said Diaz.

Arguably, he said, the study's most important contribution involved disentangling two sedentary behaviors: total daily sedentary time and uninterrupted sedentary bout duration.

"It might require a combination of exercise, light activity and frequent movement breaks", he said.

"We think that if you take a movement break every 30 minutes that this could decrease your risk of death: if you can have walking meetings, if you have to type an email, instead of typing an email, just walk to their office", Dr. Diaz explained.

5 things we've learned about the 2017 South Carolina Gamecocks
No play is more reflective of hybrid strategy than the C-130 sweep, effective use of a top pass-catcher in the running game. Saturday's 359 yards were the most in a regular season game since putting up 367 against Western Carolina last season.

A team of researchers studied almost 8,000 black and white adults ages 45 and older and measured both their total and average lengths of desk-bound time.

Researchers sorted participants into four groups from the least sedentary people, who spent only about 11 hours total sitting and standing in a typical day, to the most sedentary people who were inactive for more than 13 hours a day.

Measuring duration, the researchers clocked participants sitting, on average, for 11.4 minutes at a stretch.

Over a median follow-up period of four years, 340 of the participants died.

According to a new study by researchers at the Center for Behavioral Cardiovascular Health at Columbia University Medical Center in NY, adults who sit around during most of the day are more likely to die earlier than people who don't sit around a lot, regardless of their exercise regimens.

Those who kept their sitting bouts to less than half an hour had the lowest odds for premature death.
