Floating around in a chair causes bone loss and obesity... Oh no wait a moment.
I dont see the purpose of this article if its correct. A study done in 2010 garnered 14 years results that imply sedentary lifestyles cause poor health.
Well if I'd managed to pack 14 years of lounging around into the last 2 I'd probably not be feeling too good either. Or did they just decide to sit on the results for 2 years to see if the project died of natural causes?
Honestly, public health advice is in the toilet. I have OCD and spend up to 16 hours a day in front of a computer. I dont have a car, but I love BurgerKing, KFC and pizzas and eat them regularly. I smoke, a little, but never in the house and I make my own beer so I like a tipple.
I dont have many wrinkles, never had spots either - I'm 45, 5'6" and weigh 9.5 stone and have been this way for over 20 years simply because I walk the mile into town and dont sit still when I do sit.
Its not difficult to treat your body with respect; walk it regularly and dont eat junk. (By this I mean junk eating, theres no such thing as junk food if its eaten as part of a healthy diet) Keep out of the sun as best you can because it will age your skin, and feeling youthful comes from looking youthful.
Best of all, leave that boring desk job and go help people instead.
