Research has linked sitting for long periods of time with a number of health concerns. They include obesity and a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels — that make up metabolic syndrome. Too much sitting overall and prolonged periods of sitting also seem to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. WEDNESDAY, Oct.

14, 2015 (HealthDay News)—Sitting for long periods might not be as deadly as previous research has suggested. A new report from British scientists finds that people are not at a higher risk for early death if they don’t leave their chair or couch for hours at a time. The results challenge numerous studies that have claimed even regular exercise won’t erase the health harms of sedentary. No matter how much you exercise, sitting for excessively long periods of time is a risk factor for early death, a new study published Monday in Annals of Internal Medicine found.

There’s a. Sitting is Deadly. Sitting down for prolonged periods of time can shorten our lifespan and regular exercise might not counteract the damage. Duration: 5min 38sec. Broadcast: Thu 16.

In the American Cancer Society study, prolonged leisure time sitting was associated with a 19% higher rate of death from all causes combined compared to sitting less than 3 hours per day. The study defined prolonged sitting time as 6 or more hours a day. Harvard Medical School suggests that sitting for more than 6 to 8 hours a day is potentially bad for you.

They suggest that you avoid prolonged sitting, but. Combing through 47 prior studies, Canadian researchers found that prolonged daily sitting was linked to significantly higher odds of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and dying. And even if study. Leg pain can have many causes, but your description of aching after prolonged standing or sitting suggests a possible buildup of fluid in the leg veins (chronic venous disease, venous insufficiency).

Chronic venous disease occurs when the valves in your leg veins don’t work properly to keep blood moving efficiently from your legs to your heart. Researchers aren’t sure why prolonged sitting has such harmful health consequences. But one possible explanation is that it relaxes your largest muscles. When muscles relax, they take up very little glucose from the blood, raising your risk of type 2 diabetes.

Sitting can also increase pain. This type of lifestyle—one of sitting and being sedentary for periods of more than an hour or two at a time—has a detrimental impact on our health and well-being. Unfortunately, there are dangers of sitting for long periods of time.

But luckily, there are some office exercises and other initiatives you can take to.

The evidence, from groups as diverse as London bus drivers and astronauts, is that prolonged periods of sitting are bad for health—they increase the chance of stroke, heart attacks, diabetes, and some cancers—even for people who exercise sufficiently.

  • Dear Dr. Jo,

    The first exercise you recommend for your listeners who sit for most of the day is seated hip flexion, which strengthens the illiopsoas muscle. Can you kindly explain why you would encourage hip flexion strengthening? It would appear that, in fact, those who sit for long periods of time develop hip flexion tightness, and the remedy should be stretching of this muscle group, not strengthening.

    Thank you,

  • الحَمدُ لله.
    We Muslimeen perform a minimum of 5 Salawaat in a day, at certain time periods. In addition to that some more. الحَمدُ لله. We have to move from the sitting position. Search about how to perform Salah. Many walk to the Masjid. We perform Wudhu before Salah. In addition to that we are encouraged to plant trees, give charity, help other people etc. We are commanded to take care of ourselves. الحَمدُ لله.

  • I am 46 almost 47 (3 months to go) and I just started seeing some light blood when I wipe after I urinate. I just had my period about a week and am half ago. I’ve been having hot flashes and night sweats and a lot of anxiety and heart palpitations. Is this a sign of perimenopause? I’m seeing my ONGYN this Tuesday. Thank you so much ❤️

  • I have the nexplanon implant and I’ve been on my period for about 2 months. It’s the same medium flow, just constant. I can’t go to the doctor so I’m just watching videos to try to figure this out……

  • I’m always bleeding, I hardly have a weeks break. I have normal period blood for about 10 days after that it’s continued spotting until my next period. What is this? How can I treat this? Please help if anyone knows anything about this condition, the continue bleeding is usually in jelly form, or like mucus it’s not runny like normal blood.

  • I’ve been on my period for over 6 months without stopping well I stopped for 2 weeks three times during this course and been back on for the rest

  • Hi, my periods have become slightly irregular (maybe a week late, I’ve missed about one period this year and last year, I’m 45 years old). No change in heaviness, they last 5 days and follow a light, heavy, light, heavy-ish, light pattern. My last period was however ten days long, five lightish days of trying to get started then five days of light to moderate flow, however am currently on day 17 of my light-to-moderate flow period. It’s causing me no real problems, but of course the length is abnormal, what are your thoughts, Ms Vogel? Thanks in advance x

  • they last 3 weeks at a time and I honestly got lucky in June because it was 11 days and it can again so I’m hoping it less than 2 weeks

  • I sit all day first thing I do is school and then I come home and do homework and when I’m done I draw and eat out the day and sit and eat..

  • My period started on 25th of april and today is 9th may….its been 15 day but it hasn’t stopped yet.. The flow is still on
    I am so tensed… Is it normal?? What should i do?

  • Hi this is my 7th day of my period and it seems to slow down but not too much. If this had happened to you please reply and tell me how long you had you period for once and if I’m going to die. I don’t think it will be save to go to the doctor at these times but please reply if you can.:)

  • But I have got my periods at 8 years old so should I watch this or not
    And one more thing that your voice is so much soothing
    Love you a lot����

  • Hey…�� thank you for this upload today. I really appreciate this information. I am in group 3 and I never go to the Drs. But I went to ask for blood tests for vit.deficiencies as ive had fatigue and anxiety and wanted to treat myself with supplements. A day and a half later the Drs called me to make an appointment for the next day. And this threw me into absolute panic. And yesterday I had an appointment through for a pelvic scan. Which freaked me out again. Basically all you have told me is what I wanted to hear from the Dr. I am treating the anemia with Spatone which is so gentle on my tum and I also drink Beetroot, pineapple, apple, lime fresh juice every day… and eat dried apricots as im a veggie. Your clear information has stopped my worry, so I really appreciate this. ♡
    Ladies, listen to your body, hormones are amazing… they bring life into this world.. dont be scared of them.. help yourself by losing weight, eating organic home prepped foods rich in veggies… doing exercise and meditating… I take full responsibilty for my health… and will try anything to feel brand new ������ Our bodies arent against us… just merely giving us feedback to look after ourselves ✔������������������ x Thanks again

  • Dr Jo, Is there any exercise for relieving top knee pain from sitting too long/bending too long?
    Whenever I sit down or stand up from sitting in an office chair, it aggravates the patella quadriceps tendon pain

  • I’ve been on my period for almost 50 days. My doctor didn’t help me at all, and told me to come back in a few months if I’m still on it.

  • I am 47 and having heavy period for consecutive 2 cycles. 1st time I went thru D&C and this month, my gynae gv me T.acid and 1 mth hormone pill. The end, my gynae told me that Mirena is the best choice for my condition. However, I’m afraid of the side effect, it seems it is worse than just having heavy bleeding. Appreciate if you could share your view on Mirena. I am really confused with this change of hormone. Thank you!
