What is Sitting Disease?The term "Sitting Disease" has been coined by the scientific community and is commonly used when referring to metabolic syndrome and the ill-effects of an overly sedentary lifestyle. However, the medical community does not recognize Sitting Disease as a diagnosable disease at this time.
Negative Effects of Sitting Disease:According to a study done by the American Cancer Society between 1993 - 2006, men who were inactive and sat over 6 hours daily were 48% more likely to die than those who were physically active and sat less than 3 hours a day. Women who were inactive and sat over 6 hours a day were 94% more likely to die than those who were physically active and sat less than 3 hours a day.
