Health risks of sitting

It was noted as far back as 1700 that 'Chairworkers' seemed tp have an increased risk for several diseases.

Since then, prolonged sitting (as a habit or for work purposes) has been found to increase the risks of developing heart disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes and various cancers.

It's currently not known why long periods of sitting seems to increase the chances of developing these diseases.

A 2010 review sutudy found that although there are some well established links between sedentary behaviour and disease, they are probably weaker than was prevously thought.
