SHAFAQNA- According to Medicalnewstodys reported that Numerous studies have shown that prolonged sitting day after day is linked to poorer health and early death. Now, a new study suggests even a small change can make a difference. The researchers say a 2-minute walk every hour may offset the risk of death linked to prolonged sitting.
The researchers report their study in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN).
They conclude that low-intensity activity such as standing may not be enough to offset the effect of sitting for long periods, but adding just 2 minutes of walking per hour to a weekly routine of more moderate exercise may have an effect.
