Researchers warn us that those of us who want to live longer should avoid sitting down for a long time. The Australian study discovered that sitting down too long may increase the risk of death within the period of three years, even if you perform physical activities.

According to the results of the study, which enabled 222,000 people, sitting too long can lead to premature death. It was revealed that those who sat 11 or more hours daily had a 40 higher risk of dying during the next three years comparing to those who spent sitting less than four hours per day.

During the study the risk stayed the same after considering their physical activity, weight and general health. Those people that sit between eight to eleven hours per day had a 15 percent higher risk of dying. These finding were published in the medical journal Archives of Internal Medicine.

well what is the reason behind this. why a person die just by sitting and working for 10 hours. what medical or scientific proof do you have. because on daily basis we read lot of new information more then half was wrong and few were right. So If you want to advice some one then give them some proof of this.
