Office Jobs are doubling the risk of premature death, even when we exercise regularly, the latest research has shown. But if you get of the table every half an hour, it drastically reduces this risk.
The results are from Cambridge University research. Their experts found that one of six deaths is related to office jobs where employees are sitting 9 to 17 o’clock. The main causes were heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and dementia. They also estimate that 37 percent of British adults spend less than half an hour a day on their feet.
Nearly 8,000 people over the age of 45 participated in the latest research by a team of American experts from Columbia University in New York. It has been shown that the greatest risk of premature death exists among those who sit in a piece for 90 minutes, writes The Sun.
– Sitting is really like the new smoking. We need creative ways to increase regular activity times, not just reducing the time spent sitting – explained researcher Monica Safford.
