Study suggests sitting is the new smoking

A recent study published in The Globe and Mail states that the sedentary life is killing us. The researchers found that the least active, essentially those who sit all day, had a:
  • 147-per-cent increased risk of heart attack or stroke;
  • 112-per-cent increase in the risk of developing diabetes;
  • 90-per-cent greater risk of dying from a cardiac event;
  • 49-per-cent greater risk of premature mortality.
