Sitting for a long time!
The results of the study are initially unspectacular: relaxing on the sofa all evening without getting up can make you ill – no matter how sporty you are otherwise!
Hidden health risks of prolonged sitting
Couch more dangerous than office chair!
The results of the study are initially unspectacular: relaxing on the sofa all evening without getting up can make you ill – no matter how sporty you are otherwise! Those subjects who watched TV for a long time also had thicker artery walls, regardless of their fitness level. And thick vein walls are in turn associated with a higher risk of heart disease.
The results for sitting at a desk, on the other hand, are surprising: those who sat a lot at work tended to have better artery walls. According to this, lounging on the couch is unhealthier than sitting for a long time at work!
Are you at risk
However, the study is only meaningful to a limited extent: First, the times are based on the subjective assessments of the subjects instead of objective time measurements. This makes them more prone to errors. Second, those who sat a lot on the sofa were, on average, older, less formally educated and earned less money. Those who sat a lot at their desks, on the other hand, were younger and tended to work full-time.
Whether you are at risk depends on several factors: Do you have a regular job or do you just sit on the sofa? Are you more under or over 40? Are you employed and do you exercise regularly? You are at risk if you do not exercise, do not work, are over 40 and spend most of the day on the sofa. up with you Get moving. This also applies if you sit a lot at work. Get up in between, stretch, do eye training, change your sitting position.
