Sitting and Cancer – The Perils At Your Desk

Sitting and Cancer – The Perils At Your Desk


Several studies are now able to prove that the more you sit in your day, the more increased risk there is in developing certain cancers including colon and endometrial cancer.

The same research found that each 2 hour increase in sitting per day increased the risk of developing colon cancer by 8%, and endometrial cancer by 10%.

Surprisingly, it didn’t matter how active the study participants were when they were not sitting – meaning the results were independent of physical activity.  In case you didn’t already know, research now proves that a sedentary lifestyle can present potential cancer risk factors.

How many hours a day are you sitting?
